It would be rather easy to make, but webcomic widgets have a huge flaw - if they display the whole comic width, they are VERY large (thus breaking the Apple HIG), and if not, they are ugly and a pain to navigate. You'd be better off setting AppleGeeks as your starting page in Safari - or just write a small Automator script that pulls the comic each day and makes it your desktop background Smile
