    No. The PDF format is too complicated for the DS to read, or so I am told

    yeah pdf takes too much cpu, ds would only be able to be programmed to read some of them..not really worth the time to program.

    could i possibly convert them then to .CBR and read the documents in comicbookDS?
    or will the Picto DS app not do text?

    I found a convertor to convert each to a PNG, then feed it into the imgview program by matey who did Moonshell, and voila!
