Does anyone read comics on eReaders? I know the .cbr/.cbz file would need to be converted to a eReader-friendly format, but is it a headache to read them on eReaders (i.e., 7" screens are still too small)?

Many thanks in advance.

Just unpack the .cbr file - its just a ZIP compression and the comics are JPG.

So if you cant stand to look at pictures on your device, then reading comics wont be much fun either :)

I've wanted to read manga on my Kindle but to be honest it just seems too un-weildy :(
Plus half the stuff I enjoy isn't even available digitally.
