David, simple solution is to scan (to 600dpi tiff) the pages, and zip them
and then change the *.zip to *.cbz (Comic Book Zip) and upload.  You could
add a simple cover page listing the titles.

The Book-op process on the IA will produce the downloadable PDF and online
display page/images.

I'd also be happy to also copy the zip/cbz you create and reload as
individual metadata for each of the titles.
