MComix is an updated fork of the Comix project, a comic reader that made the top five the last time we looked at the best desktop comic readers. Comix stopped development a few years back, and MComix has been updated with a few new tricks, bug fixes, and stability improvements. The reader was designed to handle sequential images in a simple interface that works really well for comic books. All of the pages run down the left side of the screen, and a large pane on the right shows you the current page. MComix is lightweight, free, open-source, and gets the job done. Some package managers already include Comix, so installing it may be a terminal command away on your Linux system.
Windows users can just fire up the installer and go.
