Microsoft Comic Superhero

A former DC Comics editor is creating a comic strip for techies, entitled ‘Heroes Happen Here’, and it’s sponsored by Microsoft itself. The interesting thing is Microsoft’s implementation of a comic strip viewer. It’s not too bad but it does require installing their Silverlight browser plug-in, which seems a tad heavy for the job in hand.

Silverlight is Microsoft’s competitor to Flash, which is just what we all need… something else to bog down our browsers. Any guesses as to how long before the Mac OS X version of Silverlight falls behind the Windows version in terms of features and bug fixes?
