You must already know Peruse by now, a lightweight comic reader for Linux desktops. Another one is Bookworm, which is both an Ebook reader and manager. Today, I introduce to you another cool comic book reader (probably even cooler) and it goes by the name of MComix.
MComix is a user-friendly, cross-platform and customizable Ebook reader specifically designed to handle comic books. Being a fork of Comix, it can serve as a generic viewer and also supports a variety of container formats including CB7, CBT, and PDF, among others.
Features in MComix
- FOSS – free to download and use; Open source with its source code available on SourceForge.
- Comprehensive online documentation here.
- Display modes: Fullscreen; double page; Fit image to window width, height or both.
- Supports bookmarks.
- Contains library.
- Supports Manga mode (comics that read from right-to-left).
- Supports fast scrolling (using the spacebar).
- Contains an image enhancer with options to transform images by rotating or flipping.
- Remembers the last viewed page.
- Customizable Interface: hide any toolbar, change background colors, e.t.c.
The aim of MComix is to improve on all the features supported in Comix and add a lot more so I can’t list all of them here. You will just have to download the app and try it out yourself.
