CBR is a file extension for a comic book or paperback RAR file format and is a compressed archive of image files such as GIF, JPEG or PNG.

CBR files open in dedicated readers such as Comical. A CBR file can also be opened by Winrar but will not be displayed as a comic book in paired pages as when viewed in a dedicated reader.
