Latest release

Mar 5 2019: mr_teal_1.9.2.zip (1.06 MB)

A tool for reading webcomics (or any set of sequential images) with annotations. Source code is available in the archive.

Changelog

1.9.2 (March 5, 2019): Added the B command, added the help screen, added this changelog. Moved project off github, included the source code in the program archive file, changed license to the unlicense. Added support for multi-line annotations, but this can be difficult to read against the comic background. If a comic's annotations take up multiple lines, it's recommended to use the B command to view them fullscreen against a solid black background.
