Comics Viewer

ComicGeekFilter: I recently downloaded my favorite comic ever (Grant Morrison's The Invisibles!), and look forward to reading them again--thing is it's just a series of jpegs, which makes it difficult to browse through. I seem to remember a comics viewer application but I don't know the name. Can anyone suggest software that would be good for viewing comics?

Yes, I use the same. Morrison's Kill Your Boyfriend got me through high school.-

I've got to recommend Irfanview as a really nice program for navigating a pile of images. Another nice thing about it, it's just a single .exe, so you can copy it around and it works without installing.

Mac folks should check out Comical.

I really like FFview and it works great with a series of jpegs. Works on a mac like a dream, and it's got a really simple and pleasant to use interface.

the opera browser is actually very good for this--i used it while reading the entire Love Hina series. you can use mouse gestures to navigate, and it will automatically know the next image to load up.

Vallen Jpegger. I find it quicker that Irfanview.
