Fixed. I know beautifulsoup4 is there twice, I'll fix it next update.

phantomjs can be dropped as a dependency (orphan package on AUR, and unmaintained upstream). It hasn't been a requirement for quite some time:

Requirement for Selenium and PhantomJS completely removed [2017.06.12] (

I've found a way to make it work. Also the versioning changed again upstream.

I'm not knowledgeable enough in python to fix this package. If somebody else want to take it just tell me. It might be just not updated upstream for python 3.10 yet but I don't know.

I changed the versioning so to update, reinstall the package.

The /usr/bin/comic-dl script created by the PKGBUILD breaks arguments before passing it to the python script (and also unnecessarily depends on bash). Fix:
