Do You know any comic book readers available? Then please share it!

What is special about a comic book reader? It should help to read the text bubbles in the comic books.

A comic book archive or comic book reader file is a type of archive file for the purpose of sequential viewing of images, especially comic books. (from Wikipedia)

Any idea if Okular has been ported to Sailfish? On KDE have used it for reading *.cbr files.

I made the Mieru offline manga and comic book reader for Maemo 5, MeeGo 1.2 Harmattan and BlackBerry 10.

talk.maemo.org. thread

Ovi store page

Blackberry World page

The source code is available from Github under GPLv3:

Mieru source code

Currently the GUI is using PySide and Qt4 but I'd like to eventually port it to PyOtherSide and Qt 5 so that it could run on Sailfish OS. But I'm currently rather preoccupied by working on the modRana flexible navigation system, so I can't really give any timeline for the Mieru port. The source code is there, so anyone is free to start on the port or help me with it. :)

Hi, and thanks for the insights. I checked Mieru and it looks like a really nice app. Someone may port it to Sailfish, I hope.
