For reading, checking email, and playing games, you can't do better than the 2013 Nexus 7. But it's a bit small for browsing web sites, and definitely too small for reading comics.

Several of my friends are happy with recent models in the Samsung Galaxy Tab/Note line, and since Amazon lists a brand new model as "released tomorrow", you could either get a decent discount on the previous model or get The Latest Thing, depending on your budget.
(of course, my own tablet of choice is the Microsoft Surface Pro 2, which is more capable, but also heavier and considerably more expensive)

Also, having worked with several tablets over the last several years, I strongly recommend you budget for a sturdy cover. I have seen several tablets suffer damage to the screen because they were held between thumb and fingers on the left or right edge. A good book-style cover will give you something else to hold on to.

Tab Pro is currently $329/$399 on Amazon for 8.4/10.1 inches; the Tab S is $399/$499. All have "retina" class 2560x1600 displays, fast processors, plenty of RAM, and a rather poky 16GB of storage. (There's supposedly a 32GB option on the Tab S, but I haven't seen it.) But they do support microSD cards. The Tab Pro has a high-quality IPS LCD; the Tab S has an OLED screen, which can use less power and potentially better colour reproduction.
Also, the Nexus 7 now seems to be out of stock in many places, suggesting there's a new model on the way. An announcement was expected at Google I/O yesterday, but so far, nothing.
