And here's a link to the picture on KryptonSite leading to speculation that Clark might be losing his underpants:

Jeggings for all!

I think The Flaming C set the standard. The oven mitt is the clincher.

Comics are about the only digital medium that I would let get away with it. In the book publishing world, there are a lot of steps in the promotion and distribution ladder that range from inefficiency to outright grifting, and digital distribution circumvents a lot of them. Comics, though, are priced pretty close to the bone as it is. Nobody picks up an inkpot or opens a comics shop to get rich. If there's fat to be trimmed at DC and Marvel, it's at the very top where all those licensing fees for the movies and toys land, not at the printing presses/servers or on the trucks/tubes that put the comics in front of your eyeballs.

They just announced Batwoman #1, which features a lesbian protagonist, so I think your groupmate's fears can be assuaged.

It was a five-issue miniseries published in 2003. As Axel Alonso (the series editor) put it, "We thought it would be interesting to play with the genre. Enigmatic cowboy rides into dusty little desert town victimized by desperadoes, saves the day, wins everyone's heart, then rides off into the sunset, looking better than any cowboy has a right to."



I don't know if it's available in ebook format, but here are links to the print edition at Amazon:

Paperback


Hardcover

I read comics and graphic novels on my iPod. With the right app, such as comiXology, reading is a pleasure. What's great is the way how with a tap of the finger you can set it to automatically zoom in on panels and word balloons. A big plus to ancient eyes like mine.

oh yeah, i do like the zoom thing but recently i've seen so many hardback comic collections when I went to Kinokuniya in Singapore, and they were so gorgeous! xP

and about that superman pic, maybe they just FINALLY put Clark's underwear where it belongs... like inside his costume?

The perfect Bizarro tale would have Bizarro-Superman wearing his underwear under his spandex and Bizarro-Clark showing up at the Planet with his tighty-whities over his trousers.

Several such things A decent LCD monitor + CDisplayEx can deliver your comics larger than life and popping with color, the only drawback being that you have to sit in front of it.

The Nook Color is also an outstanding device for comics, with the high-res IPS screen (translation: sharp image, great colors, great viewing angles). I actually find this 7" screen much better than my old 10" netbook, which had the same resolution. A new iPad would be better yet, being the next device up the ladder with a comparable display and, well, bigger, but it's also more than twice the price.
