CBZ on Paperwhite?

So I just got finished setting up a collection of comics for my son on his K3. I went through and converted his whole collection of pdf and loose jpg comics into CBZs. In the process I found a series I'd actually like to read myself on my Paperwhite but I'm having a hard time figuring out how to do this. I've come across several threads about Manga\Comic readers (Mangle, Komic, etc) but none of those apparently work for Paperwhites. There's another thread about converting the comics to .mobi's but if possible I'd much rather use the CBZ's I already have so I don't have to store duplicates and go through all the effort to convert each issue all over again. Is it possible to get these CBZ's to work on my Paperwhite? Is there some awesome program I can install on my kindle that will make the clouds part and the sun shine and let me do this without reconverting all of these again? Is there some amazing app that doesn't require me to understand python, own a mac, or install 50 bigillion programs on my computer and go through 15 steps to get this to work? Thanks for any help you can provide.

Can't read the format.

Only MOBI, or put all the images in a folder naming them sequentially
eg:
Code:
Comic 1\Title 1 - Page001.jpg
Comic 1\Title 1 - page002.jpg
Comic 1\Title 2 - Page001.jpg
Comic 1\Title 2 - Page002.jpg
Comic 2\Title 1 - Page001.jpg
Comic 2\Title 1 - page002.jpg
Comic 2\Title 2 - Page001.jpg
etc....

Isn't .CBZ simply a ZIP archive? Perhaps simply renaming the file with a zip-extension will do trick.

AFAIK picture viewer (both by folder and by ZIP archive) has been removed by Amazon on the Kindle after the NT (so, Touch and PW does not have it)

There is still an image viewer, but you need to create a folder named 'Images' in top level and put image content in there. You can package images in .zip files or in folders inside the Images folder, .cbz is ignored. Items will be listed in a collection named Images (at end of 'all items' list when not in Title sort).

The viewer lacks much of the functionality of previous kindles. No zoom/pan for example.

Works on KT and PW.

thanks for pointing this out, I didn't knew. I discovered Mobi-converted comics a bit more comfortable (on K3 too, now that it has PanelView), anyway... I don't really use "Panel View" features - 4-square autozooming - but it does solve some visual glitches on page turn and fullscreen that image viewer had.
