    Hear hear! I have an Android tablet but I too love binge-reading my comics on it! In fact, I specifically bought a tablet with a color screen rather than just a text-oriented Kindle so I could read comics on it.

    The portability factor is definitely the best part. I have been on a Captain America kick for the past year (can’t imagine WHY) and I’m carrying around something like the past 10 years’ worth of books in my purse. (I don’t even carry a backpack — I have a Large Purse.) I also have a bunch of other things so I can choose what I feel like reading “in the moment” rather than having to plan ahead before I leave the house.

    I have also on more than one occasion buttonholed my 12 year old nephew in the middle of a conversation by whipping out the tablet and shoving it at him. “Read this RIGHT NOW! You’ll love it!” (I had a lot of fun sharing the “Dog’s Eye” view issue of Hawkeye,.)

    It’s also a lot easier to read a 7 inch tablet on a New York City subway ride than schlepping a pile of comics or trades. It’s especially good in a crowded situation where I don’t have room to open up even a trade-size collection.
