this is just me, thinking about digital comic book.

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.

thanks again!

With half animated pop ups and expressions, and not to mention how you easily scroll through the pages with your keyboard arrows, makes this a unique experience!"

Has anyone else followed this format for web comics? It's really great in that it makes the comic more interactive, not less, like when clcikable animations are added to panels.

Hiya... I'd like to do my own version of this kind of comic but i don't know flash at all... i tried to figure out how to make buttons etc. But i failed. I will keep trying... but could you possibly send me the setup you had for flash? This is amazing and i am totally inspired.

Are there any other comics in this style lying around? I can't seem to find them.

check out marvel's latest infinite comics, or Powerplay on comixology.

one word, awesome! you've just changed Marvel Comics now :D
powblamshazam Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2012
I don't know if you posted this elsewhere, but what program do you use to set this all up? Do you draw each panel individual and then impose them on each other through the sequence?

powblamshazam Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2012
For the record, I have little to no art skills. But I do have all of the Adobe programs on my laptop if it involves any of those. But I would love to experiment with this format. Thank you for any help!
powblamshazam Featured By Owner Apr 5, 2012
And I just saw that you worked with Flash! Did you design it in a different program and then produce it in Flash?
Dement3d Featured By Owner Apr 4, 2012
Marvel just released what they call "Infinite Comics" which follow this format. They ought to pay you royalties!
Balak01 Featured By Owner Apr 4, 2012  Professional Filmographer
I'm actually working with them on the whole Infinite Comic thingie. The next AvX infinite comic will be storyboarded by yours truly!
DougHills Featured By Owner Apr 6, 2012
