According to Elder, Comics Plus, which launches in beta this summer, will offer a broad-based subscription model—libraries spend a certain amount of money and are charged for each check out, a digital file that self-deletes in two weeks. The journal is published bimonthly in September, November, January, March, May, and July. The translator must project himself into the mind of the original author; he must transport himself into an entirely different world of relationships between sounds and meanings, and at the same time he must establish an equivalence between one infinitely complex system and another.

As Rorschach, an obsessive hero bent on solving the Comedian's murder, meditates on the bitter ironies and the cruelty of human existence, the reader is privy both to his narrative in the captions and to spliced-together memories of the Comedian's life taken from all the flashbacks from the chapter in the panels. In May, the audio version won two Audies: Children's 8—12 and Audiobook of the year.
