    I don't use CDisplay, I don't like the controls. But I'm tired of unzipping every comic, lol..

    I use ACDSee, it's like windows explorer, but useful. Rolling the mouse changes pages, and I have a grabby-hand to scroll, or I can use pg up/down and the arrow keys, just seems more natural. Plus I hate how the mouse pointer disappears in CDisplay.

    Scroll wheel scrolls and changes pages for me :dunno: You can change the preferences so that the cursor shows.

    I personally don't have any issues with CDisplay, but I checked out Comical the other day, and found it to be a pretty attractive alternative. I'll probably stick with CDisplay, because I kind of prefer the cleaner look of having nothing on the screen except the comic itself. Having said that, I can definitely see some advantages to Comical...

    A) Some people might prefer the the page changing buttons at the bottom of the screen.

    B) It has thumbnail previews for the pages along the left side of the screen.

    C) It can display mutiple pages at once, which more closely approximates the way you would view an actual comic book, plus it's nice for those two page splashes where the person who scanned the book didn't combine the two pages into one image.

    Definitely worth checking out.

    There is always PixelComic. Quite good. Full screen and all. It's just hard to find it on the net (a lot of shitty spanish and japanese websites to go through to find it), but it's worth it. I'll try getting my internet back soon or get a ftp program and just upload it.
