However, trying to open the said file into a workable program, that doesn't take years to load, can leave a person in frustrated tears. Mcomix is the perfect solution to this problem as it reads these files pdf directly, and gives you the option to read it double-paged just as if you had purchased the physical copy.
It also has single page options, full screen, zoom features, and an auto-scroll. For those who like to read the traditional manga, there's an option to set the reader on a 'right-to-left' option. Quickly jump to specific pages and always know where you are at with the bookmark feature.
Written using Python, this program works on both Linux and Windows and can read a large variety of formats.
