It can also open ZIP, RAR, TAR, 7z, lha, and other file formats. Reading allows many options like zooming in and out, one or two page displays, page rotation, and thumbnail view. It automatically saves your place in the book so if you reopen a comic book you’ve been reading, the Comic Reader will jump to the last page you opened.
Simple Comic can also be set to read your book from left to right or—and just perfect for reading Japanese manga—right to left. It can also run as a full-screen app.
Simple Comic can be used on PPC and Intel-based Macs running OSX Leopard 10.5 and Snow Leopard 10.6. It also runs great on OSX Lion 10.7.

One of the things I like about Simple Comic is that the application is lightweight and runs quickly even on older Macs. I’ve used it on an older iBook running OSX 10.5 Leopard and the applications ran zippily.
Comical is also a wonderful application and I will always have a soft spot in my heart for this application. Alas, on my older iBook, it ran slowly and would freeze quite every so often.
