You don't need to stop reading anymore - Go to the next chapter automatically!

How annoying is that moment when you get to the last panel and can't just go on to the next comic in that series?
From now on, when you reach the last panel/page of a comic, the 'next' button will automatically take you to the next comic in the series.
If there is no next chapter, it will go to the next related comic.

White canvas background is now available in Becomics mode!

In the Editor's 'General' properties, the creator can now choose whether the background canvas will be black, as it always was, or white!
The creator can change that option for every panel separately.

Shareable links to your comics and series

You can also access a specific book by typing becomics.com/b/[book id] (that weird collection of numbers and letters that appear in the viewer's address).
And you can access a series by typing becomics.com/s/[series id]

Improved player's free navigation viewer

Many of you asked that we optimize the free navigation on mobile devices, so we did just that!
The free view navigation will look great (and not cropped into 16:9) when reading it on mobile's portrait! Yay!

Settings

From now on you can decide what other people can see in your profile's 'about' tab! We thought it's about time to add some basic privacy and mailing settings.

Mature content

We've added a 'Mature Content' checkbox in the upload page. You can (and must, actually) mark your comic if it contains mature content. Not sure if your comic should be labeled as a mature content? Check out our guidelines.

Editors' picks page

You can now see all the editors' picks ever featured on Becomics here
