I've been looking for something like this too.
But this program seems like you have to use gnome for it to work. Is there something similar for KDE?

ok I have for you the best solution
I already had it installed on my box (and have read all berserk manga) but never checked if it supported cbz.
It´s fast,easy and you´ll like it.
