The CBZ file format stands for Comic Book Zip, and the file contains just that: compressed image files inside a ZIP file. Although these files are designed for use with special comic book zip reading software, you can access a CBZ file's contents in a Windows Explorer browser by simply renaming the file extension to ZIP. Once the file is renamed, you can open the file, and extract the JPG images for use in any image viewer application.
