As those who have been following the news from this week’s ComicCon event in New York City are well aware, Marvel announced that it will be selling its new “In-Motion” comic books in Apple’s iTunes Store. The comics differ from old-school physical comics by having animated panels and voice-over work from popular actors, making them well-suited to the iPhone and iPod Touch, with their sharp screens and various multimedia capabilities.

Fret not, diehard classic comic book fans — Marvel will release traditional paper copies of these comics (after the In-Motion versions are released on iTunes). No word yet on cost or availability.

Big-name Marvel aside, there’s plenty of comics to be found online (and on mobile phones) that’s optimized for the digital world. We’ve gone ahead and compiled a list of our favorite Web comics for your time-wasting, on-the-clock pleasure (after the break). Just remember to Control-Tab when your boss comes a-wandering by.
