CBZ Metadata, content in issue => abort, content in volume => data read

Bug Description

Importing CBZ metadata, when the field "issue" is filled, Calibre apparently aborts the reading (probably this line: mi.series_index = float(si) in archive.py - no idea why).
When "volume" is filled (with identical value) metadata is successfully read in.

These are Comics downloaded from Comixology.eu - they're free, but likely still not something that should be publicly displayed.

They've been downloaded using the Comixology Backup extension for Chrome, though an unpublished version that includes metadata gathered from the page (credits, title, issue if available).

The two tailwands comics are duplicates - one only has issue number, the other also volume number.
The CBLDF has no issue, but a series.
The Apama comic has a rather weird issue, the series is split as title. Not sure why, maybe the dash is making problems.

If you need more examples, here's the GitHub repository of my fork of the backup program (containing the metadata addition):

This is the file that contains the metadata creation:

Fixed in branch master. The fix will be in the next release. calibre is usually released every Friday.
