MComix 1.2.1 Is An Awesome Comic Book Reader

As you may know, MComix is a free and open-source comic book reader for Linux (based on Comix) that supports both western comics and manga, in specific formats, including CBR, CBZ, CB7, LHA and PDF.

Main features:

  • Fullscreen mode, double-page mode, fit image to window width, height or both.
  • Smart scrolling for easier reading (just hit the space bar a few times and see how it works)
  • Manga mode (for right-to-left comic books)
  • Bookmark pages and add books to the library.

The latest version available is MComix 1.2.1, which comes with small fixes.

Installation instructions:
