Thanks, didn't mean to sound so critical. I was just going by what I read online. Also I didn't like that I had to register a credit card or paypal account for it. ComicRack has a free version so I didn't need to do that. I like the ComicRack navigational controls. Although I have had one or two times where the app has seemed to make my tablet crash. I attribute that more to my cheap tablet.

cheers
I love ComicRack. It runs really well on my three-year old Toshiba tablet.

I also used the PC-based version to import the PDFs that came with that Star Trek comics DVD-ROM from 2008.
Can you pull the comics off the DVD without all sorts of complex hacking? I've been wanting to put them on my tablet, but I wasn't sure if I would be able too.

I wish ComicRack read pdfs, I would use it as my ebook reader. Once you get the gestures down its really easy to read and browse with.

Do you connect your tablet to your computer? are you using a PC or a Mac? I would use your file manager on your computer to take the comics off the dvd then connect the tablet to your computer and load them onto the tablet.

I use a PC laptop. I just wasn't sure if it had DRM or something else that I would have to get around.

Mine are DRM less but give it a try. I don't know you if the KGB shows on your doorstep though, please shred all correspondence between us and this message will self-destruct in 10 sec.

Re: Comic book readers on Android

The PDFs on the Star Trek DVD-ROM don't have any DRM or other copy protection. The one down-side is that two facing pages are scanned together so it's a little hard to read on a tablet. However, there is a plugin for ComicRack that will convert them into single-page CBZ format.
