When I was a kid I used to read Peanuts cartoons in paper back form. Those book formats would be great on Kobo even as PDF files. But, nowa days I only ever see this type of cartoons in very large book formats.

Have any of you seen comic collections in paper back format available in ebook format?

My kid's manga all seems to be available like this. She wants to be able to buy Manga online and read it on my Kobo. (But, I think that if that happens I will have to get a second Kobo.)

Kobo directly mentions reading manga on the device in their product pages. Only manga I've been able to find for it those is a few girly titles on the Toronto Public Library site. Would be interested to find more...

You have to go to TPL's OverDrive site if you hadn't already figured that out. OverDrive is horribly organized and difficult to wade through however. I stumbled upon them when one of the books was listed in a new collection list, but I can't find it there anymore.

There isn't a ton on there, but easiest way to get to what I know is there is to do an Advanced Search. Filter by:

There are also tools to convert CBR and CBZ files to ePUB and PDF. Check the wiki.
