I just came across something I'd like to share with my fellow Whedonites:
From the Joss Whedon-helmed webmovie Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog comes the origin story of the next greatest supervillain of all time . . . DR. HORRIBLE!

In this one-shot comic, Zack Whedon and artist Joelle Jones (Token) establish how a young, impressionable, but brilliant Dr. Horrible was drawn into a world of crime. Readers are reacquainted with the charming, brawny, crime-fighting superhero extraordinaire Captain Hammer when Dr. Horrible crosses paths with his greatest enemy in an all-out showdown of immeasurable proportions. Special guest appearances include Dr. Horrible's love interest, Penny; his sidekick, Moist; and a meter man.


The question you need to ask yourself is this: What's the chance that Nate is repeating a joke from last year (http://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?t=43943)?

You mean it's now available in a digital format? That comic has been out for a while. And it's actually already available in a digital format... you know, if you don't mind the darknet. ;)

Update: Just checked the iTunes link and it says it was released March 24th, so I guess that's a yes, it's new in digital format. Kind of... Maybe I'm a purist but I think I'd rather have the illicit version if only because it has scans of the whole pages and you can see the layout as it was intended.
