Comic Industry Instant Responses To Apple’s iPad

Thank goodness for Twitter…

Ben McCool: Er, iPad kinda sounds like something futuristic women might put in their underpants…

Brian Reed: I cannot believe they named it iPad.

Colleen AF Venable: The bad naming of iPad makes me wonder if any woman work for Apple at all.

Cameron Stewart: I called the name “iPad” months ago

Chris Butcher: $500 entry, maxes out at $830. I gotta say, that’s a game-changer.

Chris Eliopolous: I know what I’m getting for Christmas in March.

Maggie Thompson: OK, basic iPad for $500 – and then there are add-ons. But AT&T? Gee, it’d be nice, if we had AT&T reception here …

Brian Altouniain: How cool are those #TopCow comics going to look on Apple’s new iPad? At $499, this new device might be the category killer for eReaders. (Wowio just promoted their Top Cow channel, folks!- Ed)

Joe Hill: Wow. Even the high end Pad is under $850. I think they nailed their price points.

Chris Eliopolous: Is anyone actually working right now? This should be declared an Apple holiday.

Joe Hill: Wow. And they ship in two months.

Antony Johnston: keeeeeeeeyboooooooooard dooooooooock

Dave Gibbons: Keypad dock!

Joe Hill: Shit… you all see the keyboard dock? That shuffling sound you heard was me grabbing the checkbook. Sold.

David Macho: dock with keyboard? sold!

Chris Eliopolous: Wow, Kindle is out of business, methinks.

Terry Moore: Friend (re iPad): I want one! Me: I think I wet myself. Friend: Then absorbant iPad is what u need.

Beau Smith: Terry Moore, I can hear your wallet opening from here.

Skottie Young: I want Steve Jobs to be my iDad

Mark Sable: Pricing somewhat reasonable.Like the keyboard attachment. Wish it would run word though. I also wish it would hold me when I’m scared.

Jamie McKelvie: Right now I am seeing it as something to display comics on rather than to create them with.

David Gallaher: I am impressed overall

Jonah Weiland: APPLE: “Our most advanced technology in a magical & revolutionary device…” MAGICAL? DID THEY REALLY SAY THAT? Jesus Harry Potter Christ.

Phil Hester: On the bright side: Your Kindle’s a collector’s item now. Antiques Roadshow 2110.

Chris Ryall: I hate that they have this control over me, but if anyone needs me, I’ll be in line at the Apple Store. Send food and changes of clothing.

Dave Gibbons: Kindle dead. Netbook dead. Comics alive.

Scott Kurtz: Be honest with yourself, though. Would you not feel like a total douche, pulling an iPad out at a Starbucks and bleep-blooping on it?

Rob Liefeld: I am all in with the ipad! 60 days and counting!!!!

Bryan O’Malley: not reading the iNternet, iBusy drawing Scott iPilgrim
