Zuda comics now online

Well, DC Comics has officially launched Zuda Comics, and the first 10 are online ready to be viewed and voted on.

I've read a lot of commentary on Zuda's flash-based viewing system, but I had no problems either loading or viewing the comics. In fact, I loved the full-screen feature. Here's what it looked like on my work monitor:

I haven't had a chance to read them all, but I would definitely check out the first couple of pages of Black Swan by Mulele Jarvis, and be sure not to miss Leprenomicon by Kubert School instructor and super-cool nice-guy Fernando Ruiz of Archie fame.

I plan on checking out the rest over the weekend...if I can find the time. Here are some links to coverage of the Zuda Comics launch:
