Just not good anymore.
Comic Zeal used to be my favorite app but the new redesign has really broken it. I really respect the creator of the app and how passionate he seems to be about his products, but this just doesn't seem to be a well thought out design. It's buggy now and the new UI makes scrolling through comic series a nightmare. A minimalist UI design could be very cool - and I'm not adverse to a new visual direction...but this isn't it. This was once a premium app, but it's just not worth it anymore. There are better and cheaper alternatives now.

You just ruined it
Why did you have to change the layout. You really ruined the users experience with this latest update. It looks horrific on my iPad. I loved the older version and now I will have to find another app because I really dislike the UI of this latest release.

New IOS7 interface is terrible - please fix!!
Comic Zeal was my favorite comic reader, until yesterday when the new version came out. The new interface is confusing, clunky & take up three times as much display room as the former version did. Please please make some adjustments. It's really terrible as it stands now.

New Version is Terrible
Why change a good thing? The functionality of Comic Zeal remains the same, for the most part. The presentation has completely changed and not for the better. If they wanted to add this white background/red Text as an additional theme that would have been fine..instead its the ONLY theme. I loved the wood grain theme/black text. It made looking at the negative space of the background easy on the eyes. Now I have to look at this harsh, boring white wall. The app looks so plain now and perhaps its something silly to complain about but CZ had a distinct look and that added to its identity. One good addition is the ability to edit text with one click. If not for that I would give the new Zeal only 1 star. Very disappointed in what they have done.

New Version not Good!
I agree with the previous comment, the new version is a huge step back. I gave one star because this version is forcing me to look elsewhere for a new comic reader. In the previous version I preferred the Actual cover view. It was clean and easy to view collections of comics. This new view is an eye sore and you are unable to view all series at one time. Another missing feature would be an identifier for newly imported or unread comics. We no longer get a little number of unread comics in each series. :(
