Digital files are of different types and each type of file can be opened through a specific software or app only. For instance, documents are of .PDF format and need a PDF reader, similarly, compressed files are in ZIP format, which is usually accessed through ZIP extractor.
Now talking about comic books, they exist in a CDisplay Archived format that holds different pages of comic books in a compressed sequential format. These CDisplay Archived formats further exist in a RAR, ZIP, TAR etc compressed file. Each file is given a format according to the file. For instance, if the images are stored in RAR format we use CDisplay RAR Archived Comic Book (CBR) and if the images are in ZIP format we use CDisplay ZIP Archived Comic Book (CBZ).
As mentioned above, one needs a specific type of app to open a file format, hence, to open comic book format you need comic book reader or CBR reader. CBR reader is a dedicated comic book reader app. CBR readers are easily available on the Google Play Store and most of them are free.
Some of the CBR readers are:
