Comics have come a long way since the old paper books we used to cherish by reading them once, and then placing them into a nice plastic casing to behold every so often. Today it seems like Comics are becoming more and more digital. And while nothing can replace a paper copy, we can help to keep those copies in good shape by reading a digital version. The BlackBerry PlayBook is a great way to do this. Donny from the InsideBB Blog has put together a nice list of comic book apps being offered in App World. Some of my favorite comics are the Calvin and Hobbes series. Take a look below at the list, and be sure to let us know of any other comic book apps you may stumble across.
