Google says: "The themes showcase the amazingly diverse world of comics. Browse our gallery ( to choose from nostalgic comic strips like Peanuts, iconic heroes like Batman and Iron Man, or alternative comics greats like Dan Clowes, author of the graphic novel, 'Ghost World'.

The comics add to a growing range of iGoogle themes which also encompass nature, gaming and music as recent additions.
