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!"

it has nice art for almost all ages -.- :P. I like the story but if you want a larger audience you need to lower the profanity.

Well done though

What sort of Program you use to make a Digital Comic?
gulabjamuns Featured By Owner Jan 28, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
A simple yet perfect use of this specific medium. More need to follow in your example, seriously. This is like the digital equivalent of a well-directed film. If we're gonna have to completely replace paper with digital one day, let's really make it worth while.

I thought that was cool. I would love to read comics in that platform. I know this is a few years old, so no one may actually read these comments, BUT if the artist does read this, If you make one that is kid oriented  I will post it on my children's book review site and blast it out into Internet orbit constantly.

ill be honest i hate digital comics and i hate the new marvel infinite comics.
I hate being forced to read separate panels as dictated by marvel.

either make it an animation or leave it static.
KRAKENHEAD Featured By Owner Nov 15, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
OMG, this prevents the reader from glimpsing ahead, that's genius!

Whenever I read books or graphic novels I get excited and I start to skip panels/sentences to see whats going to happen. I end up spoiling the dramatic tension and I shamefully go back to rereading the text to try and relive the experience. But with this 'click' approach you can speed the comic up or slow it down based on the pace of the action.

This is still one of my favourite examples of this; the use of click-to-advance is really fantastically effective!

I love people who love comics. Only a frenchman could have done this.

I'm so proud of my neighbour country...

Also, I'm so happy even traditional comic people have modernized without loosing eniterly their roots. YAZOO!

this is so awesome 
johnfsfreeman Featured By Owner Oct 13, 2013
Very valid points. Enabling the reader to have control of what they read and the pace at which they read it is vital to enjoyment, IMHO. Plus, if you're going to have fancy bells and whistles (sound, FX, animation sequences), I still feel you need to be able to read the story without them engaged as an option. And your navigation interface must be kept simple and instinctive.

I found a piece of your work today in some downloading I was doing, an Austrian woman being verbally accosted at a bar by some guy.  There was no direct mention of your name, but I'm pretty confident it was you. I hope you read this. AWEsome! I laughed over and over. Your work is great man. Keep it up. What I just saw here is great. The way we think has changed so much with technology. Especially the way we perceive sequential-ism. Again, keep up the great work. Beautiful illustrations.

Can I ask how you made the comic multi-paged and interactive like this, with the arrows? Because I've been wanting to make one of my own... but I have no idea how. =/

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.

But you, sir, are inspirational. I shall try this...

Dude this is freaking brilliant! While i was reading this i thought of Scott McCloud and then i looked through your inspiration and so have you. Im thinking of comming up with a web comic and wondering how to procede with it. Something fantasy related. Still have to come up with style and content!!! Sigh. But i love your sexy characters!!! And the bald dude is awesome! Love the Call me maybe video!
