    Hello, I like the web browser comic reader on Comixology - it zooms to each frame.

    Which comic book reader does the same so I can read my CBZ backup like this while offline?

    I've downloaded "Comic Rack" and "CDisplay Ex" already but I don't want to do too much trial and error installing and un-installing programs etc.

    I'm on a Window 7 laptop. Any advice appreciated :)

    That's not something a CBZ reader can do - comiXology's Dynamic View thing will have involved somebody manually going through the comic and setting each panel for the reader to zoom in on. A CBZ file is literally just a ZIP full of plain image files.

    I suppose in theory software could be written to automatically identify the panels in an image it's fed, but as far as I'm aware there's no CBR/CBZ viewer out there that does that.

    The closest you'll get is a mouse-controlled "magnifier lens" - CDisplay has a nice one, CDisplay Ex does too but I don't find it as good.
