Comics by ComiXology is a good-looking comics-reader which includes a great catalog

There are coming up lots of comics reader for mobile devices, although they seem just a few if we compare them with news or e-books readers. Actually, finding a really good comics reader has become a tough task. However, ComiXology has done its best to launch a comic reader that surpasses most of the others.

It's set in a good-looking HOLO layout. It looks like Google Play with a featured highlighted comics at the top and a a vertical swiping list of other suggestions (by category). You can navigate from “featured” tab to “Just added” (latest) or “Popular” (best rated/most downloaded). You can also see your own library or visit the comic store. Most of the comics are paid although you can find some free too. The only catch: you need to create an account for getting access to the store, otherwise you won't be able to purchase/download comics. Flip pages by swiping, pinch for zooming and set other reading preferences from settings.

In a few words, an app which comics lovers cannot miss.
