You can read comics on your iPod, thanks to Clickwheel.

Clickwheel has developed new RSS-based technology to let owners of colour-screen iPods subscribe to digital comics, in the same way as they subscribe to a podcast. The software costs $24.95, and the company has also released several episodes from its current series of comics for users to carry and read on their iPods.

Built using QuickTime, Clickwheel software allows users to search, grab and display comics or cartoons that have been created for the iPod.

Registered users enjoy free and immediate access to all the comics - along with the option to download them to an iPod, while unregistered users have only limited access to the comics.

A Windows version of the software is in development, the company said.
