Hey, hey TokyoPop's putting their books online for digital distribution.
Unfortunately I already own Gyakushu! and Earthlight, the only two things I'd actually want to read. But it's not a bad start.
Jeffery Klaehn: What five words would you use to characterize Batman, to someone not necessarily familiar with the character?
Chuck Dixon: Brooding. Driven. Intelligent. Tough. Incorruptible.
Jeffery Klaehn: How would you characterize your vision of Batman?
Chuck Dixon: I leant more toward the detective side. The more analytical, less psychotic Batman.

I think I asked this already on the Superman thread but has DC said whether they'll release Superman digitally the same day as the regular release?
Marvel Editors...you are the droppings of the creative world. You were destined to float in the cesspool till urine logged and finally sink to the bottom with the rest of the shit but along came Jim Shooter who rolled up his sleeves and rescued you.
He gave you a title, respectability, power and even a credit card that you used and abused. He made you the highest payed Editors in the history of the business. He protected you against all that would tamper with your rights, your power and your pocketbook.
He backed you against all Prima Donna free lancers no matter how big...his pockets were always open to you. No cry of help was too small for him to turn his back on.
As heard in the "Brass" section of the company..."He never asked for anything for himself...always for his men."
The roof over your head, the clothes on your back, the car you drive and the trinkets you buy for your blind wives and girlfriends you owe to the Pittsburgh kid.
For all he did for you...you repayed him by attacking him like a pack of yellow, prickless faggots. Ripping away his flesh from his body and laughing and pounding your chest like conquering ghouls and long after his bones were dry you continued to pour salt on them to squeeze every ounce of pain out of him.
Not the slightest whimper or cry or tear came out of this man. With you still biting at his ankles, he put on his coat and walked away...Displaying more class and poise in defeat than all of you did in victory...Jesus had one Judas...Jim had many, those that speared him and worse, those that watched...
I stuck by him and for that you've nailed me on the same cross...I thank you for that...It's an honor to be crucified with Jim Shooter...a man who none of you will ever be.

I don't remember all the legal things about the rights to the comics, but DC seems to be pretty good about giving properties back to creators in things like this (I'm thinking of The Boys, for instance).
DC's Ron Perazza wrote:
[url=Our intention is to settle up any existing contracts and completely revert the rights and all assets back to the original creators. That way they can move on with whatever they think is best for their series unencumbered. I don't think it makes sense to prevent someone from progressing if we're not going to continue the original partnership.
