Normal Archives (.rar, .zip, .ace)
Most comics you get on the internet will come in either a rar archive (.rar) or a zip archive (.zip) , these are normal archive formats that you’d find almost any group of files you download off the internet in. Though it should be noted that these are not the only types.
Comic Archives (.cbr, .cbz, .cba)
These are normal archives that have simply had their extension changed, so you can open it more convieniently in a desired reader as opposed to winrar.
These are comics that are arranged as images in a folder.
