Comics?

I'm intrigued by the idea of reading CBR comics on the Kindle 3. Any thoughts? I know that using Calibre it's possible to convert these to readable formats... and for black and white comics, i'd be interested to see how they look on the nice high contrast e-paper screen.

Will I be the only one doing this Tongue?

I bought a copy of 'comicbooklover' app (osx only) which is awesome for reading comics on screen, I've been using it for ages and I highly recommend it.

Depending on how comics look on this device, I might actually ask the developers if they'd be willing to write a file converter/kindle loader into it...

What I Read

RE: Comics?

I'm pretty partial to a good Manga myself - there are some great horror ones.

My particular fave's are Uzumaki Junji Ito, the Gyo by Junji Ito and Death Note by Tsugumi Ohba series

I guess books like these would translate very well to the Kindle. The image quality I think is very impressive. When you sleep your Kindle it shows a series of images (much like a screensaver) and these look really good.

RE: Comics?

You can already buy Scott Pilgrim Volume 6 from the store but in my opinion its not very easy to read beacuse of their size. If there was a way to automatically zoom on every page instead of having to do it manually I'd be more inclined to buy it. I assume any other comics or manga would work in a similar way.
