I really doubt comics will be in trouble. There are a lot of people that prefer the feel of comics.

I have to say, if hubby would let me buy more bookshelves none of this would even be on my radar. But because I can't buy more bookshelves and I have to periodically purge my books I want a Kindle or a Nook. That way I can read the books that I don't necessarily need a hardcopy of. I will always buy HC of my favs, but for stuff I'll only read once I'll have an e-reader as soon as I can afford one. And I'm hoping that the price on them will come down due to the ipad.
