Way back in 2010, I was the biggest proponent of Apple’s iPad, but even with the ability to carry 10,000 digital comics in the palm of my hand, the biggest problem was that comic readers were never getting a 1:1 reading experience. Apple solved that today with the introduction of the iPad Pro.
With a 12.9-inch diagonal display, the screen on the new iPad Pro is now larger than a normal comic book. With millions of pixels, and the ability to zoom in even more, digital comic book reading is going to be an even better experience. Now instead of the constant zooming in and out to read my favorite comic, I can see it in as good a resolution as the print version selling at my local comic shop.
Since the creation of the iPad & the sketchbook pro app It has been instrumental in creating my work and especially for corrections/notes.

It seems like we are experiencing a brand new day in comics just like we did five years ago.
But at what cost?
The 128GB system will set you back $950 when it arrives in November, which may seem like a lot for someone just buying the iPad Pro to read comics. But who uses their iPad to just read comics? Gaming, art, video editing and more are going to run spectacularly on this new system.
What do you think of the iPad Pro announcement? Are you ready to plunk down your money to grab a new iPad Pro?
