As far as eInk devices, you'd probably want to look at a 10" device like the Kindle DX or the DR-1000 (or one of the yet-to-be-released devices). Manga reading isn't bad on eInk, but color comics render pretty poorly on a 16-shades of gray device (IMHO, of course). The Kindle DX natively supports CBZ/ZIP but not CBR/RAR.

You probably want a notebook computer then, convertible if possible. With a pretty big screen: I specifically chose my new notebook with a 17.3-inch diagonal screen, since that translates (at 16:9) to paper sized. A bit bigger than legal, at 8½x15 portrait. No dedicated ebook device has full-paper-size screens yet, even the biggest topping out at under 11 inches diagonally. I've read comic books on my new notebook fairly comfortably, though I might wish that I could rotate the functions of the number pad when I use it in "hold like a book" mode.
