Calibre Metadata

In Basic metadata, I use the comments box for a book synopsis but iBooks on the iPad does not show metadata, would it be possible for Calibre to insert the comments box info & Series info on the first page after the cover page when saving as an epub, that way when you open a book in iBooks the first page would be the book synopsis (Comments box) and the Series info & if this is possible, would you be able to do a batch update with existing calibre library...
