You also get some handful of features that are normally not seen in other comic readers. Soda PDF Comic Reader can also read PDF file. Moreover it can create PDF from Word, Excel, and almost every other Microsoft Office applications, but needs a free online registration.

The interface is sleek and great looking, and reminds me of Microsoft Word’s ribbon style dashboard.

The ribbon interface is divided into 5 tabs: View, Create, Review, Forms, and Online Services. View tab is enough for those who would like to use this program solely for reading comic books. You do get plenty of viewing options such as Single, Continuous, Facing, Facing Continuous, 3D View, and Full screen mode. Snapshot feature comes in handy when you want to quickly grab a screen-shot of something you liked in the book, and save it in clipboard, for your pasting needs.
