Just a few quick thoughts on this.

First of all, I like the idea - it's neat. However there are some issues.

First, the images are pretty small and some of the text is a little blurry when resized down and it's hard to read in spots.

Also, even though I have slideshow turned off, when viewing with music (which, when viewing photos, sometimes you get to keep listening to music, sometimes you don't) if you hit the wrong combination of changing the volume then the slideshow option comes back on and you have 1 second to read each slide of the graphic novel at that point. I guess you need to go in and change the time of the slide transitions.

Anyway, I don't see this becoming a real thing that happens a whole lot from now on. I think the viewing graphic novels on the Zune is a nice experiment that won't pan out. Pity- it had potential.
