DO NOT UPDATE
I loved CZ4, would have given it 5 stars easily. But the update to CZ5 deleted my entire library without warning, and there is apparently no way to restore it even from backup. I searched on the developer's site, and there are dozens of people with the same problem, and no help from the developers. I am very disappointed. To top that off, the user interface in the new version is extremely difficult to use. They replaced the elegant interface of the old version with an extremely confusing/unintuitive 'slider' that doesn't make any sense even after reading the instructions several times (should I really need to read instructions in order to read a comic book?)

Bought under misunderstood pretense.
After formatting my iPhone and re-installing a lot of apps I'd previously paid for, I went searching for Comic Zeal and found this app first. Having thought the app was updated/rebranded, I took no notice to the new icon and installed it, thinking it was the same Comic Zeal I'd had in the past. Only now, after seeing my bank account 8 dollars poorer do I realize the app was totally distinct from what I'd previously paid for and used. Feels bad, man.

Update fixed Bugs
The last update fixed all the bugs I previously posted. Definitely a 5 star app now.

Comic zeal 5 update
The new version is great the interface is awesome but I do wish they brought back the function to save photos iPads new screen capture function is too literal and captures the entire screen as opposed to the image in question

Thank You!!!!
I've been using Comic Zeal as a cbr and PDF reader for a long time. It was easily one of the best readers out there and the latest update has bumped this app up from good to amazing. Finally there is an app that lets me rename my cbr files. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you a thousand times.

Catastrophic Icon Change
I have all the comic book apps, but this was always my favourite for many reasons, not the least was the elegant, and recognisably Apple-like icon. One buys Apple products in large part because of that inherent style, and the new icon that Comic Zeal now sports, is completely at odds with that minimalist, smooth style. The faux wood/textured background is also jarring and ugly. If I had no other comic reader options, I'd have no recourse, but I do -- so I've deleted Comic Zeal from my iPad. Should they revert to the old icon, background, or adopt a more elegant version, I'll reinstall it and review the rating with pleasure.
