Digital comics on your Mac

It seems that MacWorld editor, Jason Snell, is a bit of a comic fan.

“I have a confession to make. During my formative years, I spent a huge amount of time reading comic books. I’ve still got more than a thousand of them, mostly from 1979 through 1987, in a box in my garage.”

Jason recently discovered digital comics, and I’m happy to say, is using ComicBookLover to manage his comics.

“It’s priceless to be able to put all your digital comics in one place and find them with ease.”

Be sure to check out Jason’s article, which is an interesting and fair look at reading comics on your Mac. As rightly pointed out, we’ve set high standards for ComicBookLover, and there is still work to do. We want ComicBookLover to offer the best digital comic experience on the Mac, or any platform, and we’ll do our best to make sure it happens.

    I’d love to have some form of metadata embedded back into the CBR/CBZ archive so that if I pass on a file to another ComicBookLover user – my metadata is already there.and in case the local DB of metadata gets tanked – it would be nice to be able to rebuild things quickly and efficiently instead of having to rekey all sorts of stuff back in.

    Yes, this is something we’ve been looking at for a while now, and we hope to have a solution available in a future update. Watch this space!

    Ditto the last post. It kinda sucks to not be able to embed the metadata in the folder/cbr archives themselves. It also seems like if a comic issue is a folder filled with JPG and if one of those JPG is changed, the entire issue’s metadata is lost in Comicbooklover. It’d be nice if that is fixed.Is there any way to provide the option of creating a cbr archive when importing into Comicbooklover?
