I'd love to see graphic novels of all the stories in the Silmarillion. There are so many great possibilities. It's just too bad that there isn't a snowball's chance in hell that Christopher Tolkien will ever loosen his hold on the Silmarillion, and his successor is sure to be every bit as protective. There's a chance that the stories from the LoTR appendixes could be adapted. The Lord of the Rings Online is built upon LoTR (obviously) and the appendixes, and they can add to and make their own stories (though it have to be controlled by whoever holds the license - not sure if it's the Tolkien Estate). I'd like to see something of the same done in comics form.

I like Snyder's run, but it seems that there are many who don't. For example the 'I shall become a bat' scene from Batman #23. There's a long discussion of it on the Batman board, with most people not liking it, but I found it at least as good as Year One, and perhaps even better (sacriledge!). The 'bat destroys window pane by flying into it' thing has never resonated very well with me.
But overall it seems to me that those who've been reading Batman for a long time prefer the classics, while newer readers, such as me, like Snyder just fine. I don't think it's because we don't/can't appreciate the classics, but perhaps because we don't have so many years of history; of how 'it's supposed to be', and as such are more open to other interpretations.
So I was wondering if there are any ads in digital comics? Do they come out the same day as print comics?
Welcome to the site! I buy digital comics for the same reason as you do, and I like it.
There are no ads, and they come out same day as print. I don't know about Marvel, but DC has some Digital Only comics, that you can only get that way.
As for the Kindle, I can't help you. I use an iPad with the DC app, but I don't know if you can get the app for Kindles too. The Comixology app is the most used one. It has comics from virtually all publishers.
@ace_of_spades90: The two first issues are out. The main story focuses on Bruce's return to Gotham, and so far he hasn't become Batman. The backup are shorts from his training. I really like it. It's distinctly different from Batman: Year One (as was promised) but very entertaining.
I voted damage, and by that I mean manipulate and influence him. Just look at Injustice...
That's so much nicer than the 'official' one, although I have to say that I'm not a fan of that style in general. It should be a bit sleeker.
Not to hijack your thread, but I just saw this completely awesome fan-made poster, and didn't want to start a new thread:
I liked Bale in the Nolan trilogy, but I really, really don't think it'd do any good if starred in the new movies as well. One, the new movies will focus more on comic Batman, and I think Bale needs something to get there, physical. Not that I bodybuilder, but something halfway between Bale and Millar's TDKR Batman (who was way too huge). It'd also be extremely difficult for WB to sell the idea that this is a different Batman to the common people. They'd think that this was a continuation of Nolan's movies.
I like Nolan's movies, but they're *not* the 'real' Batman. I want to see comics Batman on the big screen!
I nominate The Fiend with Nine Eyes. Probably not a winner candidate (using your detactable arm as a club HAS to be the winner here), but I think he's a strong runner-up.
If he closes his hand to punch someone, or tries to catch something or grip anything really, he'll be blind.
