Revew: Jomic

Jomic is another comic book reader. It is written for the PPC, so the Intel folks will need to install Rosetta (allows the Intel machines to run PPC code). The version I have appears to be a demo. Many of the items in the menu are greyed out. However, I found by a bit of experimentation some of these items do function.

Since the program was written for slower machines I’ve observed it is very fast on a faster machine. It is also quite stable and have observed no crashes. It also handles zip files very well. I would not be surprised to find it works with rar files just as well. For those worried about cbz and cbr files, those formats are wrappers around zip and rar files.

The down side is unless the authors release an Intel version of the program, it will not work with OS X 10.7 (Lion) because Apple has said they will not be supporting Rosetta beyond 10.6 (Snow Leopard). There are other requirements in addition to those I outlined. The home page for the project is located at…
