New Google Themes: Comics, This Time

"Introducing comics themes for iGoogle"
Google (July 23, 2009)

"Love comics? Personalize your homepage with themes ranging from superhero and alternative comics to manga and more. Get themes from your favorites like Superman, The Hulk, Mutts, and over 50 other celebrated comics...."

Google's come out with a new set of themes for their iGoogle homepage service. What the new themes have in common is that they all come from 'the comics.' Like
  • Popeye by E.C. Segar
  • Dilbert
  • Jaime Hernandez
  • RIN-NE by Rumiko Takahashi
  • Minty Lewis
  • Ziggy by Tom Wilson
  • TOKYOPOP Kawaii
  • Blackest Night
  • Krazy & Ignatz by George Herriman
  • Zuda Comics
  • Nancy
  • The Hulk
Apart from being selected from those comics which people have, at one time or another, been produced commercially for an English-reading market, I don't see a great deal of uniformity in the selection.

I started using the iGoogle homepage some time ago, and quickly settled on the Tea House theme: but I'm giving Blackest Night a try. I haven't read that many of the Green Lantern stories, but the Green Lantern Corps background/premise intrigued me - and struck me as one of the less-improbable superhero scenarios.

More about the Green Lantern and vaguely-related matters, in "Green Lantern Oath: Something to Think About," Drifting at the Edge of Space and Time (July 23, 2009).
