    I love these comics but you guys need to put more thought into the viewer you are using. Its not working for issues like this. You need to be able to account for double page spreads and it also does not work well with wide screens and laptops. The more I use the viewer the less I like it to be honest.

      There's a button for viewing as double page spreads in the upper left corner of the reader window, third button in. Thumbnails, single page view, double page view.

      I find the viewer to be pretty simple and intuitive. You are right, especially with Jon Sable Freelance, you HAVE to use to the double page spread option. Mike Grell loves to spread his layouts across two pages and this issue has a particularly cool and exciting double page spread! I generally zoom out on the double pages, get a feel for how the page is laid out and the overall design. Then, I zoom in to read the text, because my eyesight isn't the best.Seriously, if you look about on the web at other web-based comics and comics readers, you will find that ComicMix has one of the best interfaces around.

    Is there some way to search and view by "Artist" or "Comic"? You have tons of potential here but you are not utilizing it. If there was some way to view this great content a with a bit more ease, I may find myself spending more quality time here. Instead, I close the page in pure frustration. Then return a month later to more content and less user interface. What gives? Is there a forum for suggestions? Is there a suggestion for a forum? Is this the forum? I am not sure… *sigh*
