FANDOM


A list of programs specifically geared to reading digital comics, excluding generic image viewers. Mostly ripped from: http://www.geocities.jp/comicview7/

The most popular comic viewer on Windows is CDisplay.

There are quite a lot of comic viewers out there with a non-English interface. Some of them are way superior to their English counterparts, so there is merit in listing them, even if the interface is puzzling.

CDisplayEdit

There are three versions of CDisplay floating around these days. The last official release was 1.8.0.1, which was released back in 2004. Since then two new, unofficial, continuing branches have emerged.


CDisplay (up to 1.8)Edit

"The Windows Image Viewer 'CDisplay' was written to ease the viewing of images in JPEG, PNG and static GIF format. This was partly down to the existing programs currently available being too general purpose and thus awkward to use when simply wanting to view images sequentially."

CDisplay (Unofficial update 1.8+)Edit

MangaMeeyaEdit

Japanese comic viewer with Japanese interface. You wouldn't tell it from the site, but this baby is blindingly fast. A Japanese reviewer called the interface "puzzling", so imagine how puzzling it can be if you can't read Japanese.

Sadly, it was discontinued over some license issues.

There is an english version available, but it doesn't appear to be being actively developed. Nonetheless, it is a very good reader. You do however have to take some time to customize the controls, but once you've done that it runs very smoothly. This is a good program for those who like cDisplay, but want more features. The only thing it lacks is yellow reduction.
