For magazines where I have only made them available as JPEG graphical page scans, here is a handy tip from Marcos Cruz (thanks Marcos). The ".zip" filename extension can be changed to ".cbz", then a comic viewer will open the file, and you can read it as comfortably as with a PDF viewer. I've never used them, but apparently there are free readers around for the most common OS platforms, just search for "comic book reader" or ".cbz reader" on the web. Of course, the hope is that in time I'll be able to make them all available as common PDF files, but until then...
