    I'm looking for a comic book viewer that lets a user create collections and is capable of downloading entire folders with comics in them. For example, Goodreader accepts archive files, which hold folders in them, than unpacks them and recreates directory structure. Is there any app that can do that? I don't care about a particular technique that this or that app makes use of, all I care about is that I want to get a bulk of comics on iPad without having to spend much time manually sorting them into collections.

    Comic Zeal does to a point, but not to the specifics of your query. I use comic book lover on my Mac as a library and collection sorter (32GB). I use Comic Zeal on ipad as my reader (and prefer it to my Mac). I can go into a folder that hold a collection of .cbr .cbz files, select all the files I want and transfer to iPad via iTunes sync. It does not however allow me to select a bunch of folders with a sub folder trees and transfer all with directory intact. Which is what I think you wanted. Comic Zeal however does place comic files in folders(an old school comic book holder) automatically according to name, so if you had a single folder full of files and the file names where organized into comic book series and numbered eg xxxx 001 and yyyy 001, it would put them in a folder automatically and keep your series separate. hope this helps a bit.

    Thanks for reply. I've figured Comic Zeal seems to be the only application for reading comics on iPad worthy of attention. Too bad it can't do what GoodReader does in terms of unpacking archive files and providing a directory structure to work with.
