There is actually no _vendor directory in source package. @HurricanePootis could you open upstream bug for that?

Created upstream bug.

[MainThread] ERROR: You don't have the required version of the Python Imaging Library Fork (Pillow) installed.
22:05:16 [MainThread] ERROR: Installed Pillow version is: 10.0.0
22:05:16 [MainThread] ERROR: Required Pillow version is: 6.0.0 or higher

The recent upgrade of python-pillow to 10.0.0 broke the version check (seems it only checks the first digit?). This is an upstream bug but I can't make a report there for some reason.

ERROR Missing dependencies:
    jaraco.text -> inflect -> pydantic>=1.9.1

I got this. I ran pip install setuptools, observed there was a conflict with some other packages, uninstalled them, and now it works.

Although it seems weird to me that the AUR build isn't insulated from the system python library versions, maybe it's my fault for using pip.

comicthumb is not included in package by upstream. Moreover it wasn't ported to Python 3 in upstream. It was adapted in mcomix3 fork, but changes weren't merged in upstream for some reason.
