CBR - Comic Book RAR Archive

What is a CBR file?

CBR files are used for storing digital comic books. They are essentially RAR archive files (.cbr) containing sequential images (like JPEG or PNG) of comic book pages. The images are displayed in a specific order to create a comic book reading experience.

CBR files are a popular format for digital comic books because they allow for efficient compression of images while preserving image quality. This format is widely supported by comic book reader software and applications.

To read CBR files, you can use dedicated comic book reader software such as:

  • CDisplayEx: A popular and free CBR/CBZ comic book reader for Windows.
  • ComicRack: A feature-rich comic book reader for Windows.
  • Perfect Viewer: An Android app for reading comic books, including CBR files.
