I have converted some comics to ePub, using Calibre, for viewing on my Kobo and the text is extremely difficult to read. It looks great, but it is almost painful to try and read through. I might try to crop the images to cut out as much border as I can, just to see if it increases the text size enough to be comfortably readable.

As was mentioned, though, comic books (as opposed to manga) are usually in a larger format, and I imagine the writing would be difficult to read. You might as well give it a shot though. I imagine I will eventually.
I eventualy found that pocket book sized manga cbr files convert to a nice pdf on the kobo.
