DinguxCommander allows you to view plaintext files.
There are no cbz readers though.

With only 320*240 pixel resolution, viewing CBZ files will not make a good experience. So it will not make much sense to make such app for the CGW-0.
The GCW-0 is meant for playing retro games, not for reading e-books.

There was a comic book reader for the DS that actually worked pretty decently with an even smaller resolution. Granted there was a lot of scrolling around and it helped the second screen could show you the whole page you could tap area to see bigger on the top screen, but it's totally doable.

E-reading on the other hand is more doable. It isn't the best experience and anyone asking to do PDF should be shot, but epub or plain text shouldn't be too hard.
