The iPad has been on the minds of a lot of Mac users as of late. In this special edition of the Macworld Podcast, recorded on the show floor of this week’s Macworld Expo, I speak to four people about Apple’s forthcoming tablet and what it means for comic books.

I’m joined by Michael Murphey, CEO of iVerse Media; Jeff Webber, director of ePublishing for IDW Publishing; Brett Dovman, CFO of PanelFly, and Andy Ihanatko, who writes for many places, most notably the Chicago Sun-Times.

Show Notes

Immediately after the iPad’s unveiling, I wrote about the tablet’s potential for digital comics. You should also check out the Panelfly Comics and iVerse Comics apps for the iPhone.
