PDF Comics
I noticed lately (not sure how long these have been up) that there are many downloadable PDF documents of various comic strips published. On pages like this for example:

http://www.xfamily.org/index.php/True_Komix_-_The_Love_of_God#Table_of_Contents_.28Numerical.29
http://www.xfamily.org/index.php/King_Arthur's_Nights!
http://www.xfamily.org/index.php/True_Komix#Individual True Komix
http://www.xfamily.org/index.php/Flirty_Fishing#Documents
http://www.xfamily.org/index.php/Heaven's_Children
http://www.xfamily.org/index.php/FN_Encyclopedia
http://www.xfamily.org/index.php/Basic_Training_Handbook

There are probably others I am unaware of.

Anyway, I was wondering if, is there possibly a batched file of all the various comic books and illustrations produced? Like especially in the case of ongoing series presented in succession like the 'King Arthur' one.

It might be easier just so people could download them all at once and then browse at leisure. I realize that would be a significant burden to bandwidth so could torrent technology be used? I am concerned like if this site ever goes down who would preserve the documents, but since the links to them seem to be spread over so many different wiki articles I am not sure where to find an exhaustive list nor am I sure my carpal tunnel could survive all the clicking needed to download them.

I don't think we'll ever use bittorrent for the content in our multimedia archive. The main reason is that standard web servers and content delivery networks are more efficient and reliable. I believe all the PDF files you refer to can be found at http://media.xfamily.org/docs/fam/
If you don't want to download files one at a time you can use software such as wget
Wikipedia also has a list of download managers
