Wacom’s second generation of Bamboo tablets have really taken off. And why shouldn’t they? They offer quality pen tablets with great levels of sensitivity and size for $200 and under. We were very impressed with their sub-$100 offering, the Bamboo Pen & Touch when we reviewed it in September.

Wacom has also had success with packaging a quality tablet with a software bundle honed to a particular subset of graphic art. For instance, their Bamboo Craft is a differently painted version of the Pen & Touch with added photo manipulation software to aid the scrapbooking enthusiast. Now Wacom is releasing another graphics tablet — the Bamboo Comic Pen & Touch — for those who are into anime and manga art.

The Wacom Bamboo Comic is a Pen & Touch with a very detailed software package. It comes with Pixia Edition. Illust Studio Mini, Comic Studio Mini, Corel Painter Essentials 4 and Pencil LITE. All great programs to help the aspiring or accomplished comic artist. The only downside is that the new version is being released in Japan on December 2nd. We’re still waiting on word back to see if we’ll see a stateside release and, if so, for how much.
