I'm considering buying an iPad to read comics, so I am looking in to my options for purchasing digital comics. I see Barnes and Noble sells "Nook Comics", and their site indicates these can be read on the color Nook tablets and the Nook app for Android.
Owners of the Nook Tablet and Nook Color (plus Android tablets with the Nook app) will now be able to catch up on the adventures of Superman, Batman, Sandman, and other characters published by DC Entertainment. Barnes & Noble announced today that more than 100 of DC’s graphic novels are available through Nook Comics.
Seems odd that they'd support reading the comics on the Nook app only for Android, not under iOS as well. I was hoping someone who uses the Nook ecosystem and has an iPad could clarify if this is an oversight, or accurate. Does the iPad Nook app really not support Nook Comics?
