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!

about DIGITAL COMICS by ~Balak01. The suggester writes: "It's brilliant and really brings comic reading to a new level! 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 reaaaaaly kicks ass !!
The perfect mix between trad comics and web techs !
I love this. :love:

This is the most effective example of digital comics I've seen.

Some guys think that by adding motion and voice over that there making the work better. But really all they're doing is making bad looking animation and distracting from my ability to actually read the story.

This is great what you've done here. I'm going to show all my friends...

BLOODY BRILLIANT!!! teach us how to, oh master!!! lol,
'imma consider this when doin' comics...
OMG this rox!!!! Very interesting concept indeed... :3
LoL, thats really funny, but now he needs a bigger hammer...
This is the coolest thing I have ever seen... It opened up a Pandora's Box of ideas for me... I just was wondering if you could share the Actionscript you used to create the keyboard arrow navigation... I love that you can just click through the whole comic passively on the keyboard I just don't know the Actionscript for it. If you could post if I would be eternally grateful.. thank you

How did you make this? I want to learn how to make something like that!
Absolutely excellent idea, very nicely done, and it does exactly what it says on the tin:)[link]

I came here from Scott Kurtz of PvP Comics [link] and I agree. I feel this is certainly an interesting outlook and perspective n the whole comic thing. I've seen similar things to this but I like where this is being taken. Being a wannabe cartoonist myself, perhaps I might try this in the future. Thank you for your contribution.
