    I know I could just uncompress them, print the images to a PDF and then SSH/Transfer them to my iTouch and read with RUbooks or similar, but is there any app for reading downloaded CBR comics? Sure, there's a few in the App Store, but none of them are free. So, anyone have any ideas?

    icomic can read .cbz and .zip files. You will have to convert .cbr files.

    You should be able to get icomic in cydia.

    Dang. Well, there's a good cbr-to-cbz viewer out there, so I could do that.

    Check the comics link in my sig for the dedicated iComic thread here at IPTF. There's also an app called MyComic on the appstore that kind of reads cbr (it actually converts them to jpeg images on your device and resizes them to a more manageable 100 pixels high once you have transferred them over but hey its close enough).

    Though I would recommend iComic still as its 1) free on Cydia for JB version, 2) only 99cents for the appstore version, 3) much more stable and user firendly. The only downside is that you have to convert your cbrs to zips, though there's loads of info on easy ways to do that on the aforementioned iComic thread.

    Enjoy
