Now, I’m a huge nerd, but this may be the best 4-way crossover comic ever. I follow every comic Ryan Sohmer writes, and while I admit I don’t get Gutters much of the time because it’s full of inner-circle comic industry references, sometimes I find gems.

As we got closer and closer to the Kindle Fire’s launch I was starting to get worried about the state of the Amazon App store (mainly, its lack of a Netflix app). Even more paranoid, I also had some little whispering concerns in the back of my head that Amazon was going to try something awful like locking it’s awesome new tablet in to the Amazon streaming services.
But no worries! Gizmodo reports that the new Kindle Fire will be launching with Facebook, Netflix, Pandora, and all your favorite Android games next week. Amazon is reviewing all the apps in their app store and beefing up the selection and compatibility for launch.
I haven’t pre-ordered one, but this is just one more check on my checklist for purchasing one. I’ll wait until the first reviews are out, but I’ll most likely be purchasing one in December.
I recently purchased one of the new ad-supported $79 Kindles from Amazon’s new continuum of Kindles. This is an upgrade from my old Kindle 2 after its screen froze (actually the second time this happened – the first time it was under warranty and Amazon replaced it). Pictured above is the size comparison.
Below I’ve listed the Pros and Cons of the new reader.
Amazon has started a 5000-book library for Kindle owners with Amazon Prime accounts. You can checkout 1 book per month for free and keep it as long as you want (only 1 book at a time). As a proud Kindle owner, I’m very excited by this news and I hope they keep adding content to this.
