Blank pages added in Ibooks

Hi..
Just got the Calibre server to connect to my Ipad 3 and downloaded some books and comic books. I'm using Ibooks to open the books. Regular books work fine. Strange thing is that all the comic books have a blank page added after each normal comic book page.. This appears only on the Ipad through Ibooks, not viewing through Calibre.
Any ideas how to resolve?

What format are the comic books in?
Your best option is to have them as cbr or cbz files and use a specialist comic app to read them.

I used both PDF and CBR files. Seems to make no differences... Maybe something in the Epub conversion or could it simply be Ibooks that adds that blank page?
Ideas?

Look at the ePub HTML code and see what's causing the blank page.

Don't convert them to ePub in the first place.
It just isn't a very good choice of format for comics. There are many apps which will read the PDF and CBR files directly. I use Bookman.

Sometimes if the image is a bit too tall it will cause a blank page. For an experiment, try reducing the height quite a bit and see if it goes away. I always struggle with blank pages manifesting on the iPad (I'm surfing around now looking for my own solution).
