I couldn't help it. I had to rip down to the local independent Mac dealer and test drive the iPad. The store's entire shipment has been spoken for as has the incoming shipment. I haven't ordered one yet, but I am excited to experience comics on the device.
I went to App store with the iPad and searched for comics specifically designed for the iPad platform. Here's what I found:
Comic Reader Mobi
Considering that Toon Books just came out with an iPhone app, it won't be long until our children are reading their first comics on the iPad. I am envisioning all kinds of educational impacts of this device in the classroom (and personally). Considering one can blog, facebook, glog, read, surf, shop, type documents, presentations and spreadsheets – all on a device that is fast, light and easy to hold and carry – I can't help but think it will change the way John Q. Public will consume (and even produce).
