Note attached screenshot.
This is as far as it goes.
Get a few seconds of this incompletely loaded folder and then a black screen for half a second as it closes.
Then it's back to home screen.
Full uninstall, factory reset and restore does not work and no failed imports
Ax do you mind my asking what kind of ipad you're using? I haven't had this happen on my iphone 6 yet, and I'm wondering if it's the older devices that are causing us issues. (That said, I'm sure emolina has taken that into consideration).
It'd be a shame if ipad 2's were out, CZ, netflix and plex are the only things that I (could) still use my one for.
David, it's an iPad Mini 1 with version 9.3.2 on it.
Didn't happen before the last upgrade of CZ, so your theory could have some merit.
Would be sad if they relegated the older devices to the dumpster...

Hi everyone, I found the cause of this bug today. I had not
throttled back the generation of thumbnails for comic series.
Normally the thumbnails get generated one at a time when comics are
imported so it's not an issue.
When there has been an app update however they all have to be
generated again (sometimes!) and it was being done all at once by
mistake instead of one at a time.
On newer devices it's fine because everything can fit into
memory ok, and on older devices I think it was ok most of the time
too, but every once in a while the combination of an older device,
with a list of comics that may be of a higher resolution caused a
I hope to get this fixed in the next few days and out to be
betas for testing soon.
I'm getting the same issue- I hadn't been getting it before, but not sure when I last read a comic / installed that many at once. I'm using an iPad 2 with latest iOS and latest comic zeal. Any news on when updated version will be available?
App keeps crashing when I try to import bigger files in the CBZ format. I deleted the app an reinstalled it, and still have the problem. Now I can't use the app at all unless I want to delete and reinstall it again.
I have downloaded the file from the Humble store directly on to the Chunky reader app, and from there I tried to copy it into ComicZeal.
I use an IPad Air 2 with iTunes 9.3.4
File size is 0.6GB

I'm having the same issues. It took a few tries to get comics to import without crashing but now when the list comes up, I get the titles but crashes before thumbnails appear. I'm on an iPad 2 with the latest version of OS. Thanks.
