Help !!!

I have been considering purchasing an Amazon Kindle.. (possibly the touch version) which in turn got me thinking about the limitations of black and white "e-ink" and have started thinking about getting a colour screen for viewing graphic novels/comics etc.

It appears that the UK wont be getting Kindle Fire anytime soon (something to do with content laws) so have been looking at the Nexus 7, which I have been told can be formatted to emulate the Kindle fire.

I don't really want to spend the amount of money required for an iPad and don't really see myself using it for watching films etc.. Even the anticipated iPad mini I think is more than I want.

Anyone have any suggestions?

Do graphic novels I want to read such as Batman: Dark Knight Returns/Watchmen/Elektra Assassin even officially exist in this kind of format yet ????
