Reading and organizing a comic book collection on your computer is efficient and a lot of fun. Today we will look at a couple of free applications that allow you to read your favorite comic books on your computer.
One of the most well known comic book readers is CDisplay, which has a simple interface with several options to allow the best viewing… just browse to the comic you want by going to File Load file.
CDisplay does a great job of displaying comics with settings such as a black background to make it easy on your eyes.
Go to Options Configure or just hit “C” to go in and change viewing features. Keyboard Ninja’s will appreciate the many hotkey combinations.
Another great choice is ComicRack which actually has more viewing features than CDisplay. While reading a comic you can easily change setting by right clicking on a page to pull up the menus.
Switching pages is easy with a pop up menu that scrolls to different pages in the comic.
You can go in and change the page order of the comic under Preferences.
You can keep up with the latest builds and other ComicRack news.
ComicRack also includes programmable hotkeys as well.
These are just some of the features of ComicRack. Other features include creating reading lists, using ComicRack as a PDF viewer, information overlays, color adjustment, and other options to manage a comic library.
If you are just starting off with eComics here are a few places to get them free or cheap.
