What is a .CBC file?

The file extension .CBC stands for Comic Book Collection. This type of file is essentially a zip file that is specifically used to organize and store collections of comic books. It is primarily accessed and managed through a program called Calibre, which is an eBook management and conversion application.

Inside a .CBC file, you will typically find files with the extensions .CBZ and .CBR. These are common formats for comic book files where .CBZ is a comic book file compressed in a ZIP archive, and .CBR is a comic book file compressed in a RAR archive. Additionally, a .CBC file includes a text file named "comics.txt." This text file is encoded in UTF-8 format and usually contains metadata or information about the comic book files within the collection.

To open a .CBC file, you should use the Calibre software. Calibre is designed to handle eBook formats including comic book files, making it well-suited for opening, viewing, and managing .CBC files. Since Calibre is available for multiple operating systems, you can use it on Windows, macOS, and Linux to access your comic book collections stored in .CBC files.
