They're thinking of ePub comic books, like the ones sold by Kobo; comics like "The Walking Dead" and similar are very large ePub files which only have graphics... and no, you can't read ePubs in landscape mode on the Kobo.

And while you can read comics in landscape mode... it's not optimal. If you want to turn pages while zoomed, you'll be best served using the arrow keys, which means a bar at the bottom with the slider and arrow/double-arrow buttons.

As I also said elsewhere, and as 9littlebees has said, if you want to read comics landscape... the Glo isn't the best options. Nor is any 5-6" eInk screen, for that matter; the pages are too small when in landscape mode if you're viewing the full image for a two-page spread, or else you have to scroll too much if it's just a one-page spread.

You want to do two pages in landscape? Get a 9-10" tablet.
