If three years of mandatory French classes in high school taught me anything, it's that learning a new language is not only incredibly hard; if you're not motivated, it's pretty much impossible. Thankfully, there might be a new way around that thanks to LingoZing, a new app that teaches readers new languages via comic books, which has launched a Kickstarter campaign today.

Now that we're several years into digital comics being a going concern, the usual response to hearing that a publisher has joined up with Comixology tends to be something along the lines of, "Wait, they weren't on there already?" This week, though, we got one that's definitely worth talking about. Yen Press just made its debut on the digital comics platform, bringing almost 200 manga titles, including Fullmetal Alchemist, the Kingdom Hearts manga, and even the American manga adaptation of Stephenie Meyer's Twilight novels.
But what really matters here is this: Yotsuba&! is now on Comixology.

This week, Comixology has launched a sale on DC's digital-first line, which means that for half of their usual cover price, you can catch up on rip-roaring retro adventure in books like Bombshells, Wonder Woman '77, and Batman '66, get continuity-free adventures in Adventures of Superman, Sensation Comics, and Legends of the Dark Knight, and --- perhaps most importantly --- finally get the answer to the question of whether Batman could defeat a pro wrestler.

When Monkeybrain Comics launched, it did so with Edison Rex as its flagship title. Created by Chris Roberson and Dennis Culver, with colors by Stephen Downer and letters by John J. Hill, it told the story of a Lex Luthor analogue forced to face the question, "What now?" after finally defeating his arch-nemesis. The creative team have now announced that Edison Rex will be serialized from the beginning as a webcomic --- and once it catches up to the most recent issues, it will continue online with new stories.
