These are lovely ... are they CBRs? Oooh, looks like they are ...

In that case, curious folks might need a link to some CBR readers:

Rumor is I'm getting an iPad for my birthday. If (or when) that happens, I think this site will quickly become one of my most visited.

First the Dune encyclopaedia, and now this. I just might explode.

Looks like you'll need to convert the CBR files to something the iPad will accept. Instructions here.

No need to convert CBR files for the iPad. You can just use a free reader like CloudReaders.

I recommend Comic Zeal for iPad. A little pricey, but you really do get what you pay for.

Thanks a lot jerk. The imagined lack of CBR support was how I'd convinced myself not to want one. I'll send you a bill.

Also, ArcReader for iPad reads cbr files just fine. Nothing fancy, and it's free.
