Cool Comics from Sony

For the entire range of PSPs, Sony is offering comics (in the US they're already available, in Germany to start in about 2 weeks).
It's the usual suspects: Marvel, Disney, .....
Obviously Sony is pushing content even further.
Wouldn't it totally make sense, to exchange content between PSP and eBook readers? And maybe even other gadgets (from Sony)?
I certainly wouldn't want to read books on PSP. But comics on Sony 900?
Did anyone hear about plans for making these comics accessible for our readers?

Awesome! I remember Sony selling manga for readers, but not comics.

I've not heard anything about it but I am still a kid at heart so I'd definitely be interested.

I would love it. Seems like the aspect ratio of the 900 is just about perfect for a standard 3-4 panel strip.

I've already bought 25 comics for PSP from the US store.
They've solved it quite nicely, to still be readable on the small screen.
You either can zoom and pan. Or you can move from (pre-defined) frame to frame.

I've downloaded all the dailies of "Dilbert" and "Garfield". Has been great on iRex iLiad. I guess, I'll repeat that experience for Sony 900.

Not natively. But of course you can extract the graphic files inside the CBR/CBZ, usually JPEGs and use them in slideshow mode. Or generate a PDF. But I'd really like to see a viewer, which can display the Sony PSP comics natively.

Calibre converts cbr/cbz to .lrf very nicely.
