The Future of Comic Books?


I found this on Fazed.net

http://balak01.deviantart.com/art/about-DIGITAL-COMICS-111966969

"this is just me, thinking about digital comic book.

to make this work, you just have to click on the arrow on the screen. you can use the arrow keys on your keyboard too, and it's more convenient, but you have to click on the screen first.

i've done this in a few hours so it's really badly drawn, i was just thinking about the new ways of making comics with all the new tools we have.

sorry about my terrible, terrible english."

That was amazing! And educational! What you said about slides is true: slide order and appearance are much less limited. I especially liked the way you layered slide upon slide, which presents a variety of possibilities for juxtaposition.
What occurred to me during the first part (black background) was the way the eye follows the text as it appears in various locations around the slide. Traditional comics force the eye to move to the next slide so text placement is not as dramatic. The slides appear in more or less the same location on the screen (of course that doesn't have to be), allowing the artist to manipulate the space within a single slide rather than having to create a new slide each time. This also prevents spoilers by removing the proceeding slides. I know when I get nervous I tend to look ahead a few paragraphs (or slides). The reader can?t anticipate the next slide peripherally.
Nice work! Impressed!

This is really cool! I only wish that it was possible to know the length of the story line in some way, whether it's something I can read in 5 minutes...or an hour. This tendency to want to know the length is probably related in some way to the kind of skimming ahead Ryan mentions above - wanting to know where I am in the story. Anyway, fantastic!

I appreciate the comments, thought I can't take credit for the work, I should have clarified it was made by a member of Fazed with the sn Balak.
I thought it was pretty interesting

Its streets really amaze visitors with their cleanness. The city budget spends really big sums of money annually to keep the city clean and beautiful. In addition to the clean and well-kept streets and parks this cozy city fascinates visitors with a huge choice of architectural attractions, many of which are old churches and monasteries. https://cheapminibuscoachhire.co.uk/manchester-taxi-hire/
