This paper presents a system for reading comics on cellular phones. It is necessary for comic images to be divided into frames and the contents such as speech text to be displayed at a comfortable reading size, since it is difficult to display high-resolution images in a low resolution cellular phone environment. We have developed a scheme how to decompose comic images into constituent elements frames, speech text and drawings. We implemented a system on the internet for a cellular phone company in our country, that provides downloadable comic data and a program for reading.
