The iPad as a comic-book reader

Jason Snell | March 5, 2013
Tablets, led by the iPad, have the potential to shake up the comic-book industry even more than ebook readers have begun to change the world of prose books. Large, portable color screens are perfect for reading comics. They've got a portability that desktop and laptop PCs can't match, and of course they show off the source material in a way that small black-and-white Kindle screens can't.

What hasn't changed is the fact that tablets like the iPad are truly excellent comic-reading devices. Now the comics I buy don't take up space in my garage or in my carry-on bag. I'm buying comics regularly for the first time since I was a teenager, and my iPad is the reason why.
