As the whole entertainment industry is moving towards digital distribution, comics are no exception. If your looking for a big fancy gift, get that special someone an eReader. Whether it’s an iPad, Barnes and Noble’s Nook or Amazon’s Kindle, they will be able to enjoy comics–digitally.
The one thing to keep in mind is that this is kind of a gateway present…buy purchasing one of these, your committing the recipient to the format and that they will have to purchase their content.
But if they really want it, go for it.
