Read comics using your PC


: Let us support the comics industry. Please do not download comics that you have no intention of buying. Download only comic back-issues that are impossible to find in stores.

Yes, you can read comics using your PC

Note: These comics are compressed jpg files of scanned comic book pages that are surprisingly easy to read on the monitor.

1. The first thing you need to do is to learn about Bittorrent. You don't need to learn about all the nitty-gritty of bittorrent, just learn a few basics of the concept and you're ready to go.

2. Download a bittorrent client like Azureus.

3. Go to a torrent site like TorrentSpy. Search for words like "Uncanny X-men," "Superman," or what title you want to download. Next, download the torrent file that you need and activate it on Azureus.

4. After you have downloaded the files using Azureus, realize that digital comic books are in .CBZ or .CBR format. You can view files like this using Cdisplay.

5. Enjoy!
