Screenshot 1: The main UI which is very simple and straightforward.

It is a comic reader that let you read scanned comic images easily. It is a personal software project done in leisure time.

It displays the image sequence you dropped in and auto pad (when the image is to big) and load next image with a single click.

The software is heavily inspired by the ComicViewer.


  • Built with Adobe AIR, which runs on Windows, Mac and Linux.
  • Build-in update checking and installing.
  • Support comic archives (Zip files), which will be decompressed directly in Flash.
This is the first time I play with Adobe AIR. It is fun to learn about the mighty native drag and drop, native menu etc of AIR. I found that sometime it is better to host the application on desktop rather than on browser because of these native stuff.
