Apple has rejected issue #10 of Jason Aaron and Jason Latour's Image Comics series Southern Bastards from its store, and odds are it isn't because of Latour's widely shared essay about the Confederate flag in its back matter.
The likely reason is an explicit sex scene that opens the issue. In virtually every previous case of Apple rejecting specific issues of comics, it's been over sexual content, not language or violence. (The one possible exception is the Johnny Ryan library of comics. It's hard to know where the offense was there.)
Superman and Batman played a huge role when I was learning to read back in the mid-1980s. Not only did I have plenty of storybooks and comics featuring the two, but I also had read-along books and records (yes, records) that I listened to on a nearly daily basis.
It looks like the kids of 2014 are going to have the opportunity to experience an updated version of that with a new interactive storybook from Livo Books, Superman and Bizarro Save the Planet. It's available through the Apple App Store and Google Play.
Let's be real for a second: A list of the top-grossing apps in the iTunes store isn't going to be all that fair. Your assorted Candy Crushes, casino games, and Simpsons Tapped Outs -- games designed to basically pick players up by their ankles and shake the change out of their pockets--are going to skew the results.
That makes it all the more of an achievement that ComiXology nabbed the No. 11 spot on the iTunes list of top-grossing iPad apps for 2013. Only it and the New York Times app, which was right below it at No. 12, managed to make the list without nickel-and-diming gamers who just had to have... I don't know, better candy to crush? I'm not too familiar with that game.
Ever finished a video game and then immediately wanted to read a comic about that game -- not just the one you bought, but the one you played, with all the choices you made? Way back in 2009, Apple developers a

This was a good year for digital comics company ComiXology: Not only did it see the 100 millionth download of a digital comic from the service (and the 2 billionth page published digitally), but the year ended with the company's Comics by ComiXology iPad app being named the third highest grossing iPad app of the last twelve months by Apple.Commenting on the app's high placement, CEO David Steinberger said

With Friday's release of Apple's new iPad 3, which comes with a much higher resolution display than previous versions (four times as many pixels, according to Apple), fans were wondering how quickly digital comic companies would take advantage of the richer colors, sharper images and possibilities being offered. The answer seems to be "very quickly," with ComiXology already announc
