Just not a great way to read comics on a tablet

I want to review the book itself, but the graphic novel format system is pretty terrible for iBooks. So much so that it ruined reading experience of this book entirely for me. You either have to read it in small format, or you can double tap to zoom in once (double tapping again zooms back out). Using this feature alone makes the book unreadable, with the print and art too small to read or enjoy. Instead, you have to use two fingers to manually zoom in and out to read this (at all). And that, reading each page manually, (forced to constantly zoom in and out multiple times every page just to read the various panels), is such a pain, especially because moving your fingers to zoom in and out causes the page to accidentally turn instead about 50% of the time. There is no learning curve here; the pages turn accidentally while you are just trying to zoom in or out to read the dialogue. It is truly terrible design. The Kindle Fire is not much better. This leaves ComiXology as the only platform that successfully has an extremely refined automatic "panel" mode, and if you want to read this book digitally, that is the only platform to consider. That app has manual mode as well, so you can CHOOSE to also read it by using your fingers to zoom in and out (but without the wretched design flaw that accidentally turns the page half the time you touch the screen). However, ComiXology's automatic panel mode makes reading a pleasure and not a burden. And trying to read this Avengers collection via iBooks is an unexpected, joy-sapping, patience-draining burden. Ultimately, I recommend reading this in paperback format over the iBook format. Avoid this book on iBook. I regret it and would purchase in trade paperback format or on a much better digital graphic novel reader format.
