Are you willing to shell out $500 for a device to read comic books on? It does look nice, and I’ve enjoyed the free comics on the PSP, but there’s something about tactile touch and the connection you feel with the printed page and the art printed on it. I can’t experience ink rubbing off on my fingers with an iPad.
