March 7, 2013 11:09 pm Can anyone explain to me why Apple won't permit it to be sold via the Comixology apps, but will sell it through iBooks?! Seems inconsistent to me.

@Connor and @SChambers - I'll pick up the second hardcover - I think it's issues 13-24, and see.  I don't want to be negative - I like the series, this just distracted me so much in the first 12, and a bit in the premiere of the show. 

And in keeping with Josh's no negativity article, I have a question.  If I in fact read read on and still have the same opinion, do I keep it to myself, articulate it somewhere else, or is ifanboy an appropriate forum to post something more detailed?

@ HBD  - I was able to get it from Canadian itunes.

- Ok, this next comment might get me in trouble, and I don't know if this is the appropriate thread.  I've read the first 12 issues of the series and watched the first episode.  Does anyone else find the themes kind of sexist?  I know that early scene with Shane and Rick was supposed to portray Shane as a misogynist ass, but it's more than that.  The message seems to be that as soon as the world goes to hell, we give up on all pretence of men and women having roles according to personality and skill, and not gender.

Men hunt and protect.   Women do laundry and don't know how to work CB radios.  There's more.

Anyone else notice this?  Is this addressed later?

I enjoyed the show and the series, but this is something that really bugs me.  I didn't go past issue 12 for that reason.  And I freaking love zombies.

October 13, 2010 9:31 am Sam, thanks for this.  I'm really looking forward to this as a regular column.  I buy a lot from the big publishers, but really have no idea what to look for from indies.  This should be an excellent resource.

Richard Pryor on skis.  That's all I remember from Superman III.  I guess it was the most important part.

As for the upcoming movie, it would be cool to have Brandon Routh back. I thought that he wasreally good as both Superman and Clark ... it's just thatSuperman Returns itself was somewhat disappointing.
