Comix is a user-friendly, customizable image viewer. It is specifically designed to handle comic books, but also serves as a generic viewer. It reads images in ZIP, RAR or tar archives (also gzip or bzip2 compressed) as well as plain image files. It is written in Python and uses GTK+ through the PyGTK bindings.

[News] Comix 4.0.0 released - 2008-12-03
Comix has been completely rewritten from scratch. On the surface things
look quite a bit like they used to, but the internal workings are
entirely new. There are too many changes for them all to be mentioned
here, but a couple of highlights are a much more functional library and a
new archive editing dialog. The work on this new version of Comix has
been going on in rather sporadic phases for almost two years, and during
that time I have received help from lots of different people. Now, I must
admit, I can no longer remember them all. So instead of trying to list as
many as I can here, I will instead simply say thank you to everyone who
have contributed fixes, patches, suggestions or encouraging words. Thanks!
