MComix is a user-friendly, customizable image viewer.
It’s specifically designed to handle comic books (both Western comics and manga) and supports a variety of container formats (including CBR, CBZ, CB7, CBT, LHA and PDF).
The software is a fork of Comix which ceased development in late 2009. MComix adds bug fixes and stability improvements.
The software is written in the Python programming language and uses GTK+ through the PyGTK bindings. It’s released under an open source license.
