Today Electricomics 1.0 launches. With 32-page showcase with four very different digital comics ready to read on your iPad.
Red Horse by the mighty Garth Ennis. A moving story from World War One, beautifully digitally painted by artist Frank Victoria, whose attention to detail brings every panel to life.
You can read Sway, by Leah Moore and John Reppion, a time travel Sci-Fi story with an interactive twist, drawn in all chronologies by the stunning talent that is Nicola Scott.
You can read Cabaret Amygdala Presents: Second Sight by Peter Hogan. A creepy little horror story in the EC tradition, which uses digital to let the reader build the picture and feel the creeping dread for themselves, drawn by Paul Davidson, who acknowledges your comfort zone, and then fills it full of horrible anyway.
Last but not least, you can read Big Nemo by Alan Moore, whose rejuvenation of Winsor McCay’s most well-known comic character, stays true to the source, but brings Moore’s trademark depth and gravity to every panel. The art duties fell to Colleen Doran, whose mastery of the form shows in every line.
Coming soon; a creator toolkit to build your own simple Electricomics, a published report on creating digital comics, and open sourcing of the core components and techniques to explore digital comics.
So get reading and stay tuned – this is the beginning of complete digital comics self-publishing ecosystem which lets you create, package, and publish your own Electricomics with open source frameworks.
