Days before the release of the second volume of her graphic novel series Angel Catbird, renowned author Margaret Atwood still has some mysteries to solve: namely, about Superman's pants.

CBC Arts just brought you the story of Johnnie Christmas, the Vancouver-based illustrator who has teamed up with the legendary Margaret Atwood. He made her story of a half-human, half-cat comic book superhero come to life in Volume 1 of Angel Catbird, while Volume 2 will be set free on February 14.

It seems, though, that after two major forays into the world of comic books, Margaret Atwood still has some questions. She worked out some of her childhood comic confusion by having Christmas draw some pants for Angel Catbird, but she still needs to know: "What happened to Superman's clothes?"

Watch Margaret Atwood in the video above. You'll want answers too.

Watch Exhibitionists Sundays at 4:30pm (5 NT) on CBC.
