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!"

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. =/

You have convinced me. Slide shows are the future!

With very clever cartoonists like yourself driving them, anyway....
