LRFs from converted PDFs are blank

I've downloaded 8 comics in PDF form, from teh same company, which I then turned into lrf using Calibre's default settings. 6 of them translated fine, but two are blank apart from the "watermark" information the publisher puts on them (basically the name of the person who bought them and an order number).

It also happens if I try to convert them to epub.

Anyone got any ideas why this might be happening? And more importantly, how to get it to convert these two!

I'm using the latest version of calibre on Mac OS X

This is a know issue calibre reflows the text, and drops images in the reflow. Since your comic books are pictures they are getting dropped. I recoomend you use , PDFLRF, PaperCrop, or PDFRead to view the comcis.
