iPad and Tablets: The ultimate comic readers?
iPad (or any Tablet, this is not an iPad debate) has the perfect form factor and display for reading comics and manga. I tried reading the Akira manga on my laptop and gave up after a few pages. I hate reading at a computer, especially when you have to keep resizing the screen to read the panels.
Being able to read on the couch, or while on the move is such a big deal, that it cannot be understated enough. I think itâ€™s a game changer.
Given that a ton of expensive and/or out of print stuff is available on the torrents, is a tablet not the natural transition for anyone who either wants to compliment their physical collection with rare works, or for a newer reader like myself to finally be able to jump in and read some of the older stuff? Marvel perhaps? Maybe finally be able to read Eagle and Sanctuary that I hear mentioned so often?
Iâ€™m picking up an iPad 2 later in the year pretty with the PRIMARY reason being a comfortable way to read a ton of comics that I would otherwise never be able to afford, or even locate if I wanted to buy them.
I imagine it would take less than a week to have in excess of $500 worth of artâ€¦ on a $500 machine.
If you want to take piracy out of the issue, just assume you will use the tablet for works that are basically impossible for you to obtain, and buy the newer stuff.
From factor. It is here.
