Unhappy azw3 comic not rendering

I have an azw3 file for a comic, which displays normally in the Kindle app on my phone. When I load it into Calibre I find a bunch of non-pages (I hit page down and the display is white, page number doesn't increment, but if I do it enough times I get to the next page) and I find some corrupted pages (display all black or with a partial image.

I am at a loss on how to handle this. Any guidance could help.

Calibre 1.25.0 on Ubuntu.

Same happens on Calibre 3.4

I could see the blank pages being due to Amazon's panel mode doing something strange, but the corrupted pages?

@tph- try reading in a different program - preferably one from Amazon. Some Kindle formats have unbreakable DRM and other hindrances to reading their books.

If you find one, use calibre's Open With feature to view it from calibre GUI. It's in View->View specific format, select AZW3, click Open With button (bottom left).

Comics in AZW3 format use a fixed layout that is proprietary to Amazon and not supported by calibre.

Your best bet is to simply opent h azw3 file in the calibre editor selecta ll the images files, rght click and export them to a folder on your computer and zip that folder up into a cbz file, which calibre (and other software) can convert/view.
