      Thanks for letting me know, i checked the cbr’s and they are ok by me, they open fine and i can read them. Perhaps something went wrong with downloading.

        Looks like it’s a browser issue…for some reason Opera is consistently corrupting downloads from adrive.com, worked fine from Chrome. A weird one, I’ll have to do a bit of digging.

        Anyhoo, thanks for providing this resource, it’s been fun watching my sister nostalgia out when I loaded these (and the Misty & Spellbound) onto her tablet.

        keep up the good work!
