Bingo. You don't need a tablet to read digital comics.
I don't know about The Animal Man, but I only have a desktop computer which is located elsewhere in the house from where I normally read my comics . . . the idea of having to go to that computer and reading it only on that device isn't too appealing to me. (And while I'm hoping we're done with all the crummy weather that caused power outages for a few days at the end of August and again at the end of October last year around me, having to hope that (a.) you don't lose power, (b.) you don't lose your internet connection, and (c.) the site doesn't have any problems, isn't really attractive to me.)
