Great potential - but poor performance
This app has a slick interface and allows you to sort your comics with out a lot of typing, but the interface is not easy to figure out (there's a help screen and a video, but time would have been better spent actually making it easy to use.) Also the process of importing comics takes forever. After you load them through iTunes you still have to wait for the app to import them when you open it which takes about 10 seconds per book. All in all, just too fussy to be practical. Sorry I wasted the $5

Good features, horrible user interface
I like the feature set, but the user interface is a bit of a nightmare. Just a few examples: - Flipping pages versus dragging a zoomed-in image is very accident-prone, I tend to get random drags and flips regardless of my intention (look at Cloudreaders or Manga BDR for perfectly good implementations). In addition, the flips don't feel natural (iOS-like) at all. This is the number #1 most basic functionality of a reader application such as this, getting it right would be my bare minimum expectation. - There are several different setting screens scattered all over the place, some of them on little gears, one very well hidden on an un-iOS-like drag-and-hold. I always seem to get to the wrong one. - Exiting from the reading screen is a little "menu" icon in the middle(!) of the screen instead of an arrow at the top-left corner like every other piece of iOS software. - Organizing comics is a mess, as has been widely reported in other comments. There are better and cheaper alternatives out there, I really don't understand all the 5 star reviews...

Best comic reader
It's excellent. I just download it for the new iPad and all the comics look great and it's very simple to use.
