$ mcomix
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/mcomix", line 11, in <module>
load_entry_point('mcomix==1.2.1', 'console_scripts', 'mcomix')()
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/site-packages/mcomix/", line 206, in run
assert PIL.Image.VERSION >= '1.1.5'
AttributeError: 'module' object has no attribute 'VERSION'

Additional info:
* package version(s)
mcomix 1.2.1-4
* config and/or log files etc.
* link to upstream bug report, if any

Steps to reproduce:
- Update the system to latest
- execute 'mcomix'

The fix is to use `PIL.Image.__version__` other than `PIL.Image.VERSION`.
