That is great!
Have not read comics since my childhood, but tried RNOComics and it inspired me to look for some new titles. :)

Thanks :) Yeah, I had a long pause with comics myself too, but then I started to look what's been released during the years and checked few top lists of all time comics etc, and downloaded my old favourites too. Then I read some of them on a tablet, but the screen is a bit small for it... 10" tablet is okayish though, but 7" I first tried was just too small. Then I thought that would be nice to read these on desktop with a big monitor too, and created this proggy :)

BTW. it came up that OS4 has a small issue with XAD... the built-in RAR client (v1.7) doesn't open all the newer .cbr files, but then the 3rd party RAR client (v2.5), which opens the newer archives, has a problem with some old .cbr files. I reported about it to 2.5's author and he might try to look it, but meanwhile I made an option to use 3rd party unrar command for unarchiving .cbr files... but I wait for other things before releasing an update, but if someone wants a beta version with unrar support for OS4, please contact me. The unrar way is also faster than XAD... at least on MorphOS, didn't time it on OS4 yet.

Version 1.1 released:
- Added UnRAR/XAD selection to the settings menu. Using UnRAR increases compatibility and speed with .cbr files.
- "Show in OS..." option works under MorphOS and OS4 too, in the history GUI
- "Open file" now loads comic archives, and picture files also
- Some tweaks, and improvements to the GUI
- Auto resize didn't work as intended for small images

https://archive.org/details/comics is one place. Select a comic and then download "comic book rar" or "comic book zip" to get a comic book archive file which can be displayed on RNOComics.
