Tech : E-reader

Alright, I’m a dinosaur. Show me something like this and I don’t know whether to stop drooling or start ranting about the good old days when things to read were made out of paper… ah, paper!

What we see here is some kind of magazine, but I wonder what it could look like if it was a comic book? The specific properties of comics, being a visual storytelling medium with static, juxtaposed images (roughly the Scott McCloud definition if I remember correctly) seem to fit awkwardly with all the moving around which is made possible with these. And when the pictures start moving, at which point is it going to stop being a comic?

Or am I thinking too much like a dinosaur again?
