First, a big thanks for all the positive feedback, suggestion and support, I received these past months from all over the world.
90% of the code has been changed/optimized in order to prepare for the future.
DrawnStrips Reader 2.0 can now open many archive format (CBR, CBZ, CB7, ZIP, RAR, TAR, Images Folder, PDF Scanned …). (Basically all your comics should just work).
Included in this new version, a CBR/CBZ/CB7 QuickLook Plug-In. With it, Finder will automatically display the first page of the comics as icon. And you can press the space bar for a quick view of your comics.
You have a bad scan :( Now you can enhance, on the fly, the pages of your comics with the new Magic Enhancer.
You want to convert your comics to another format, or to resize it. All the comics open can be saved, as CBZ, ZIP, Images Folder, PDF.
You want to customize your reading experience. Now a Preferences Panel is available. Open automatically in Full Screen, change keyboard shortcut, change background color …
… And more
We hope that you will love DrawnStrips Reader 2.0.

What's New in Version 2.3
-Bug Fix : 10.9 OS X Mavericks compatible.
-Added a preference item to select the way pages are sorted (for rare cases where the pages naming is not proper).
-Better german translation (thanks to Thomas)
Easy to use, does as advertised. Had an issue with dual monitors and a weird bug as it shifted from the retina to the non-retina causing a scaling issue. Sent my message into the developer and next day he sent me an updated version of the app with the bug fixed. Really impressed by the responsiveness and turnaround time.
A sound investment.
Getting there but stil needs work
Not a bad app but there are a few things it needs in my opinion. One, a loupe. A simple round magnified area to see details in a comic. My primary reader has this and I use it occasionally to look over the details in the art. Right clicking on a comic page brings up the loupe.
Screen shot or extract page.
Set OS X icon.
Ability to set the background color. I prefer the background to match the edges of the comic I am reading.
