to make this work, you just have to clik 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.
done with flash.
special thanks to Trudy Cooper and Danny Murphy from Platinum Grit [link] for showing me the right way.
EDIT: Thanks a lot for the positive feedback so far, it means a lot! I'm really, really pleased when i read that it give ideas, or make some people want to try it.
I would like to say that, yes, I've red Scott McCloud books, and yes, they were a great influence for me. I'm not familiar with what he said in detail about digital comics though, some friends just pointed me some things that look very similar in the way of thinking about digital comics.
that's not a surprise, McCloud practically shaped my way of thinking about comics. I liked his digital comics based on "infinite canvas" but somehow wasn't fully satisfied with them, so that's why i came up with this. I don't know if he actually submitted something similar, and any hints would be appreciated.
You've reached a lot of people with a Flash display. With tablets now everywhere 10 years later, have you been approached about displaying on an open standard? I've been tinkering with a display, prompted by people who acknowledge your influence. And for all the longevity of your open challenge, I'm surprised no one has much to say for where anyone can start to implement your ideas.
I've posted my code as a Github opensource project: github.com/UnitedHotcakesPreferred/swipe-snap
And if you know any HTML, you can see how simple the code is to manage here:
I haven't gotten much feedback for the time I've put in, but here's a sample display with an episode from a team of your fellow Thrillbent creators (I asked): chickensoup4thedamned.com/swipe_snap/
If you let me know, I can whip up a sample for your About Digital Comics, and you can see for yourself.
Still, I dont think is that fundamentally different from paper, is jsut that the "paper" does not need to be of a regular size allowing more fexibility, but the screen cosntrain must be taken into account too.
If you *HINT HINT* or anyone here wants to work on a graphic novel adaptation - contact me.
