Well it's what happened when the publishers decided to grab hold of the Comic Shops with both hands, and forgot about mainstream outlets altogether.

Looks like I'm not the only one defending Superman's shorts:

I know. The industry is in desperate need of new readers. We need more readers.

I can't see that really happening, honestly. Running shorts are probably more realistic if athletes wanted to wear something shorter over tights. At worse, you'd see something more like coaches shorts (if those abominations ever show back up :smt078 )

Speedo briefs are going the way of the dinosaur, anyhow. I saw more of the compression short-style speedos in the Olympics last year

I see a more basketball players wearing tights under their shorts this season, it seems. Watching a couple on the Wisconsin team wearing them.

its always good for a chuckle or two when a non artist or designer feels as though they can have some sort of educated, definitive opinion on art and design. :lol:
