It's pretty clear that digital comics in all their myriad forms are going to continue to change the way that comics are produced and consumed in 2012 -- and that the transformation appears to be accelerating. Publishers are experimenting, creators are experimenting, and the display on the new iPad is set to get all kinds of new people interested in comics, I suspect.

I mean, Superman Bradman is a tough book, and infamous among DC completists. And of course, Waid is well known for his extensive knowledge of vintage DC, so what else could be in there?
