Advice regarding Nook HD

I have been looking at color readers and I really favor the Nook HD. I like Barnes and Noble and love the way Nook HD feels in the hand, the display and the way it renders books and magazines. The Nook apps for iOS, Android and Windows are not as good as the software on the Nook HD. The only problem is comic books. Barnes and Noble doesn't offer single issue comic books so I am thinking of rooting a Nook HD solely to load the Android Comixology and Dark Horse Comics apps. I don't care about other apps. I have never rooted anything in my life but I feel Nook HD with comics apps would give me exactly the reading experience I want. Good idea? or am I on the wrong track.
