How do scanned comics and PDFs look on the new iPad?

I've got a fairly sizable library of scanned comics and PDFs. I've been mulling over an iPad purchase for quite a long time now, but the "retina display" on the new one gives me pause.
None of the comics or PDFs that I have were scanned in anything close to the 1536x2048 res of the new iPad, so I have to imagine they would look kind of like crap on it, but I don't know anyone who has one, so I can't confirm, and some Googling hasn't really led me to answer. An Apple booster friend of mine says "I'm sure they thought of that," but I don't see how it even has a solution.
So, do you have a new iPad, have you loaded up some scanned comics/PDFs that have drastically fewer pixels than the screen, and if so, how did it look?
