        Thank You, I will try again tomorrow. I have also tried reading/downloading most of your comics listed, and I have found the same proplems again, in as much they all go to Adrive and I cannot access to read them!

      Thanks, i believe that most links are from some years ago now and things have changed with Adrive, i will check all links the next days and upload the comics again to Mediafire and make new links where it concerns Adrive. It will take some time but i hope all links are working in a few weeks.

      When you see that screen, look above on the right you will see an arrow pointed down, that is the downloadbutton. Sometimes Google Drive can’t cope with large files and it gives an error, just ignore and push download anyway, when that happens.

    Thank You, I did do your recomended action before, and got the following.

    Google Drive can’t scan this file for viruses.
    comet12.rar (75M) exceeds the maximum size that Google can scan. Would you still like to download this file?
    Download anyway

    It downloaded but I still could not acces the 10 items of comet12.rar as it said it could not support Adobe Reader or file is corrupt.
    Any advice?

    • boutje777 says:

      The only advice i can give is, after downloading unpack the files using a rar or zip program, you will get the seperate cbr-files which you can read with any cbr-reader like CDisplay or ComicRack that are free to download from the internet. Or use a googlesearch with “cbr reader”.
      You can’t access these files with adobe-reader.

    Brilliant, thank you for advice. I can now download and read, bringing back memories for when I was a small and very young paper boy in the late 50’s, which I was able to read (when delivering) all my favourite comics – Comet, Sun, Eagle, Lion and Tiger!!!
    Again thank you, hopefully I will be able to progress other comics on your Marvelous Site!
