The Intuos Comic medium is a reasonably priced entry-level tablet from the gold standard of graphics tablet makers, Wacom. The main difference between this Intuos Comic and its smaller 2015 predecessor is that the upgrade in size simply offers more space to draw, which is beneficial on higher resolution screens. It remains a lightweight yet sturdy piece of kit.

The answer to whether you want this tablet or not depends on if you’re a hobbyist or if you’re a professional – or an aspiring one! The Intuos Comic lacks a few of the useful features of its big brother, the Intuos Pro, such as an eraser tip on the stylus, or a well to stand your stylus in.
