How To Open CBZ/CBR files

What is CBZ/CBR?
It is a file extension used for Comic Book Archives packaged with the ZIP compression. The extensions .cbz and .cbr are for Comic Book Zip and Comic Book Rar respectively. It is used for the purpose of viewing the images in sequence with an image viewer and simplifying file maintenance. These .cbz and .cbr files usually contain PNG or JPEG files. GIF, BMP, and TIFF files are occasionally seen.

There Are Two Ways To Open These Files:
  1. Extract contents using any archive utility. The contents can be extracted using any archive utility that can read ZIP and RAR files, like WinRar, TugZip, ZipGenius, BeZipped, etc.
  2. View contents using image viewing utility. A recommended application is CDisplay.

What is CDisplay?

It is a sequential image viewing utility. It allows viewing of JPEG and PNG file format images sequentially in the style of a comic book. This utility loads the images then organizes the images sequentially without decompressing the CBZ/CBR file.
