    Great comic reader.I would, however, like to be able to group folders/files more precisely. For instance the parent folder(Green Lantern) would contain sub folders (Green Lantern Corps, Green Lantern @Green Lantern:New Guardians) instead of having all these sub folders displayed on the main bookshelf individually. This would make orginising my comics so much easer.

When I switch between grid - list -folder nothing changes. When I select folder should it automa
