Comic Books on the iPhone?

Comic Books on the iPhone? No Thanks | Gadget Lab from "Is the iPhone a good platform for reading comic books? Probably not, but that isn't stopping developers from having a crack at bringing the funnies to your pocket. The problem is that the iPhone's screen, while great for reading plain-text e-books, is just a little too small for comic book pages. Part of comics' impact is the full, two-page spread which allows for spacing and pacing of the story. But a full two pages is obviously too much for the iPhone's screen. You can zoom in to read the individual frames, but that's kind of a pain."
