Supporting Mac OS X Lion Full-Screen feature. DrawnStrips Reader is a freshly launched comic book reader that supports both widely used comics format – CBZ and CBR. The application not only offers a minimalist user interface, but also supports Mac OS X Lion multi-touch gestures, which make it easy to navigate through comic book. You no longer have to use keyboard shortcuts to control the comic book; using the Mac OS X Lion touch gestures including swipe, pinch and scroll gestures, you can flip through pages, zoom in/out and scroll up and down the page. Moreover, it puts a thumbnail bar at the bottom of comic page to let you easily jump to your favorite section.

Like previously featured Simple Comic, it includes zoom in/out options, page layout and scaling features, single and double page view, option to read from left to right and vice versa, two pre-defined zoom levels to quickly adjust the page vertically and horizontally, and page rotate options. These page layout, zoom, rotate, etc., options are mapped with pre-defined hotkey combinations. You can check out all supported shortcuts from View menu.
