    Merlin Mann (I'm sure I don't have to say who he is on a Mac forum ;-] ) had this as his pick on Mac Break Weekly a couple of weeks back;

    http://www.bitcartel.com/comicbooklover/

    Can't vouch for it myself, but should be worth a look.

    the one I use is Comix, but i think its linux only.

    ComicBookLover is a fine product for mac, but it costs $25. My impression is you can still use it w/o buying, it will just show a big stamp on each page..

    If you're coming from using CDisplay in Windows (as I was), the most similar app I've found is Simple Comic. Make sure to get the 1.7 beta, its perfectly stable and adds several new features.

    Hmm...if you are talking about an online app to upload and read comics, this site might interest you www.mahshelf.com. Found this one recently through my buddies. The online reader's interface there is somewhat similar to CDisplay. But whereas CDisplay is offline, that one is online. Really neat.

    I have tried most of the programs listed here, and by far the best one, if you have Leopard, is the beta of Simple Comic.

    I use Graphic Converter's slideshow for all my manga reading since I paid for it ($35) to have as a quick file editor already. Works great for viewing unzipped image folders and can handle thousands of images without crashing.

    I use Simplecomic as well. It's not perfect (key shortcuts could be better) but pretty good.
