What will they think of next? No, really - what?

Saw this piece about comic book episodes being delivered to cell phones and got to wondering, "OK, that's cool. What's next?"

It's like Disneyland - while you're still standing in line for one ride, you start asking, "When we finish this one, where are we going next?"

Thanks to MediaLife:

Now available via cell, the first mobile comic book
Reading a paper comic book is so last month. Just ask Sean Demory and Steven Sanders, authors of “Thunder Road,” the first comic book to be released exclusively on a cell phone in the U.S. It’s offered by uClick, which has about 55,000 readers a month for its GoComics service, launched last year on Verizon Wireless, AT&T and Sprint Nextel. Released last month, “Thunder Road” joins nearly a dozen traditional comic book titles including “Bone” and “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” being offered via subscription from $3.99 to $4.49 a month. New chapters or issues are uploaded for each title on a weekly basis by the comic’s site. Japanese comics known as manga, some of which got their start on cell phones, can be read on mobile phones through a separate service.
