But scans of full size comic books (larger than the typical Manga) are still too small to read comfortably on the Kindle3 screen. Have you considered something like https://launchpad.net/comicstrip to extract each frame of a page and create individual .pngs? Resizing then each frame to the Kindle screen size would much enhance readability.
I have an algorithm already though out on a page somewhere that *should* do that (identify and separate panels). There are a lot of edge case issues with it, especially characters that are out of frames or strange borderless panel.

I guess I could put it in as an experimental feature in the future. It would work perfectly for "normal" manga panels. It's the occasional exotic arrangement of out-of-panel items that is hard to correct for.
