    "DC comics for iPad is good for reading DC comics, but if you're looking for a general CBR reader, you probably want to find something else. If you only read DC comics, this might be suitable."

    "This was the first app I downloaded for my iPad. In fact, reading my huge comic and pulp magazine collection is the only reason I got an iPad in the first place. The app has a lot of nice features and makes it easy to curate your collection. It's also useful for reading scanned PDFs and textbooks."

    "Comixology is the standard comic book app for mobile platforms. Every major release by the mainstream comic book industry can be found for sale on this app. I have used it for years to read all of my comics each week. It has a fantastic interface that allows you to read panel by panel that I find fantastic. If you love comics, you need to give it a try."

    "This is an OK comics reader. I like the interface and it is pretty straightforward but I still have a hard time with this experience on the iPad. I have seen Android apps which I feel work much better."

    "Looking for a good Comic Book Reader for your iPad? You might want to give Yacreader a try. It's available at yacreader.com for free although they appreciate donations from satisfied customers. This app doesn't have a ton of options but graphics look good and the format is great. It's like reading a real comic book. Colors come through as they were meant to be and there is absolutely no eye strain or fuzzy images that I've seen with other readers. Everything is very sharp! There might be a few readers with more options but none of the free readers are any better than this one!"

    "I've been bringing this along to school for a while, to keep me entertained during breaks in studying, and it's really quite a good app. It doesn't have the same feel as reading the physical copy at home, of course, but it's close enough that less interested people can get great use out of it. Very impressed!"
