You can download this version if you want because I read that the last one have some bug: http://depositfiles.com/files/nea56ddkq

I'm tryng it now and it have removed the white corner in all the images, it do all in automatic giving a folder (processing the whole images). And also split double images in two and display the right order of pages (right to left for manga, and left to right for comics), and I belive it do many other things it should be all written into the FAQ.

Example of single image did now by me
Well, that software would definitely help, but again, I would hesitate to recommend a 6 inch eInk reader specifically for viewing comics.

I've read some comics electronically in the past, but did so on my widescreen PC monitor, which at 24 inches could comfortably display two pages without needing to zoom.

I also have a ton of PDFs (mainly photography books from Craft & Vision, but also some roleplaying supplements) which I would love to view on a portable device, but they are just too difficult to get working well on my Glo, so I will either continue to use my PC monitor, or maybe splash out on a cheap Chinese 10 inch tablet, Christmas funds permitting.

Anyway, I will use your recommended application on some free CBR / CBZ comics I have, to see what difference removing the borders makes on the Glo, but from my perspective:

(1) I will never read in landscape mode because it is not implemented well;
(2) Comics with lots of / small text are still going to be difficult to read.

I'll try to do this sometime this week and post my results and some photos here. Hopefully this will give you a good idea of why I wouldn't recommend an eInk reader.
