In any case, do you really want to have multiple apps, one for each publisher or titles? Enter the likes of Comics and iVerse Comics. Both are free, and you'll want the two of them. There's some cross-over, but they have different content supply deals: Comics has Marvel, iVerse doesn't; iVerse has IDW, Comics does not.
iVerse offers content Comics lacks - and vice versa
There's also a marked lack of latest issues - surely, the very material readers are most willing to buy? Marvel's app - which is essentially a reskinned, single-publisher version of Comics - lists one title from 2010, and that's a seven-page preview release.
Clearly there's a long way to go to get back catalogues into digital - Marvel has Amazing Spider-Man, Avengers, Fantastic Four and Iron Man series from the 1960s, for example, though nothing from the 1970s and 1980s, alas - but with comics now produced digitally, there seems little reason not to release new issues in that mode as well as print.
Rebellion's Clickwheel provides 2000AD issues and collections, new and old
A notable exception is Clickwheel. It's worth a mention because it's the only iDevice-friendly way to get 2000AD - still the Galaxy's Greatest - and is the only app on offer that comes out of the UK comics scene. No great surprise that - it's produced 2000AD publisher Rebellion.
Unfortunately, it's an iPhone-only app, but Rebellion did tell me it hopes to make an announcement regarding the iPad "soon".

Didn't anyone read the question?
First off, iWork does not come with the iPad. They're seperate apps you need to pay for and download from the App site. iWork doesn't come with Macs, either.
But even if it did, that wouldn't help the OP, because his actual question was "Can I use the iPad with a stylus* to take shorthand notes?" which is quite different.
Apart from the fact the OP made a typo (* he wrote Styles instad of stylus), no-one actually bothered to address his question. It's possible that iJot might be of some use, but at the moment that seems to be the only stenography-capable app available. If that's the main sue the OP would put the iPad to, then he's better off going elsewhere, and checking back in a year to see if anyone has made an app he'd find useful.
...that the App Store is ready to censor cartoonists on a whim.
I've noticed that all the titles shown are apparently "acceptable" -- Marvel, DC, and the like. Am I correct assuming that I won't be able to get hold of Möbius, Cheech Wizard, Den, or the Furry Freak Brothers through the App Store?
Fsck you, Steve. I mean, I loves me some MacOS, and I've been using it for over twenty years, but, fsck you, Steve.
Super, bu can I use it at School
So nice to that the Max-ipad can do ~so~ much.
But can I use Word (or at least some other Word Processor then) with a Styles to take shorthand notes during Lecture time?
This is about the only thing that would actually concern my interests, for the rest of it I can use my Year old Laptop.
Which is what I actually plan to do any way....
I've never been a fan of comics really. So this doesn't apply to me. Looks similar to the app on the Sony PSP for reading comics but with a decent sized screen.
... it's almost as good as the paper version!
