First off, if Narr8 were only a comic book reader, it wouldn't ever caught our attention. This doesn't mean it isn't a comic reader, because it indeed is so, but it also has some features that make it pretty unique and unexpectedly interesting.
To start with, graphic novels and comic books available in Narr8 platform are only readable there, as it is original content created by Narr8 studios themselves. There are several current lines, every one getting new chapters every week or so. Topics range from "super mythological heroes" to furry soap operas, and are very enjoyable once you find the story that fits you best. Stories are presented in that dynamic modern style in which not all bubbles are showed at the same time and cartoons have been drawn in layers.
User interface should be improved a little, though. It'd be great if we were able to save artwork (you can always take a screenshot, of course) or zoom in on anywhere. Likewise, texts could have links to characters' bio or author's info, but that's something easy to be fixed.
Icing the cake are the forums, where a lively community keeps comments and suggestions going. Narr8 is actually in both English and Russian versions, though there are several more languages upcoming.
And it's free, without ads. Truly, it only asks for a log in and you get access to all the content. Highly recommendable and clap for such a brave and praiseworthy initiative in a time when mobile industry is far more focused on nonsense stuff and remaking old stuff once over again.
