I have to be totally honest here. The primary reason for buying my iPad 2 was to read comic books and I waited for version 2 just because I figured it would be a bit faster etc... . I'm glad I did because it shines as a comic book reader! Along with the comics, games (Infinity Blade etc...) and everything else it has to offer, I'm having more fun with the iPad 2 than I remember having with any device. I take it everywhere! If you're on the fence about your iPad 2 for comic books, don't hesitate! Highly recommended!!!
