Passionate comic book readers don’t have many options for comic book reading tools in Windows 10‘s Store. Most of the apps are either outdated or simply don’t feature everything users need. However, there’s one app called Cover, which stands out from the competition, and many consider it the best

Cover offers a great experience of reading comic books, mostly because it’s quite customizable. It allows users to experiment with a single or a dual page view, and adjust the height or width of the screen. If you’re reading your favorite comic book at night, and most of us do, there’s a Night Mode to keep your eyes relaxed while reading.

The app also has its own storage, allowing you to add as many comics as you want. That way, you’ll be able to keep track of the comic books you’re reading. Besides regular comic books, Cover also supports other PDF files.

Here’s the full feature list of Cover for Windows 10:

  • “All of your file formats are supported: CBZ/ZIP, CBR/RAR, 7Z/CB7, CBT, PDF, EPUB (images only)

  • … As well as your image formats: JPEG, PNG, GIF, BMP, WEBP

  • Crystal-clear library management: Shelves, read/unread status, page count, current page,…
