Just wanted to say the 12.9 iPad IMOP is the best tablet to use for reading comics if you want a near perfect experience. The 10.9 is okay, but does down size. I placed a comic on top of my screen (I use ComiXology) and it was a perfect fit. When I say perfect it was spot on. I think people forget that comics do not go from screen edge to edge so anything smaller than 12.9 will not give you an actual comic sized representation. And the reason I say almost no compromise is because no tablet will ever be able to do justice to a traditional comic double page spread drawing.
