On his home site , Jeff Friesen, author of 21 java.net articles , has posted an interesting little article titled Comic Books and Java . In the article, Jeff presents a Java application that reads and displays digitized comic books. In the article, Jeff explains the standard format in which comic books are digitized (a .cbz zipped file and a .cbr RAR archive file). Jeff then walks through his application code.
