I don't like to change my original files, but I like your idea of looking for files starting with z. I couldn't find a way to see the filename in the pages though. Do you know how to do it?

And yes if the book actually ends on a double page it will be marked as deleted. Not actually deleted of course. So if you notice something missing while reading you can easily change it back to a story page.
But don't use it for e.g. "Private Eye" where every page is "widescreen".

Just wanted to make sure you, and anybody else who might try this, has considered this issue. :)

Nowadays nearly all scanner pages have a filename beginning with z for easy extraction.

Bingo. This is what I do (but then I also repack all my archives so it might be annoying if you don't).

I found a way to see the filenames in cbz files in ComicRack, but not cbr files. So I ended up just listing the filenames with winrar. Works fine for me, but I'm sure there is a much more elegant solution possible. There will be lots of cmd windows popping up :)

There's some setup variables at the top now that can be changed. Can turn on/off looking for files starting with z or files above a set ratio at end of comic. Also need to set path to winrar if you want to look for files starting with z.

I have some presets in FreeCommander to help, but it's largely "manual" in the sense that I'm initiating it for each book and probably manually setting the naming scheme for each. I used to even go so far as to rename the files inside the archives, too, but my OCD has had to settle without doing that because it was even more time consuming.

Here is how I get rid of the annoying scanner tags.

Right click comic you want and select "info"
Goto "Pages" Tab.
Right click on the tag page
Click on "Mark as Deleted"
Click "OK"
Right click on comic again.
Re-export to .CBZ. This works for me if it's one or two books.

For a large amount of comics I rename all book extensions from .CBZ to .zip using the "ren *.cbz *.zip" command in a DOS window. (If you use .CBR files you unrar them with WinRAR).
Unzip the whole batch (each file to separate folder option) and find and delete scanner tags with Infranview. (I use Total Commander, select “View all files in current drive and all sub-directories on TC's command ribbon”)
Re-zip all then rename all to .CBZ. (Using the "ren *.ZIP *.CBZ" in a DOS window.

Or you could try my script, which does it much faster.
It has been very accurate for me at least. I don't see scanner pages any more and it takes almost no effort to remove them. Can also choose if you want to change your original files or not.

As you are removing the actual image from your files you may find my method quicker because you can do a whole page full in one go with the same effect. Mainly by making use of the thumbnail view instead of opening all of your files individually or relying on external progams.

I used to do almost exactly what you do now and it took much more effort.
