Comicster is a free Windows program designed to catalog your comic books. It stores information about publishers, trade-paperbacks, titles, individual issues, characters and creators.
Comicster requires version 4 of the .NET Framework, which will be installed if you don't already have it. Updates to Comicster will be downloaded and applied automatically as they're made available.
Windows-Explorer-like interface allows you to create your own folder hierarchy to categorize your comics.
Cross-referencing system - browse around your collection by clicking on character names, issue numbers, creators etc.
Store image URLs for each issue and for characters.
Store web-site URLs for publishers and creators.
Search the online catalog for details of your comics.
Skin system allows you to customize the look-and-feel of the display panel using XAML.
