Transmedia: How Publishers will Re-imagine Digital Comics
Some publishers are revisiting the digital-only animated comic model in test issues within the Comixology app. But the new player in the digital comics space, Madefire, recently came onto the iPad with a comics player and distribution engine that seems specifically designed for the multimedia comics experience.
They have on board one of the authors of the Watchmen series, artist Dave Gibbons. But the model is aimed at independent comics creators who want to play with the interactive tool set Madefire is offering.
In so many ways, the eventual history of digital media is destined to see the Internet as we have known it for the last 20 years as curious preamble, a kind of pre-historical primordial soup.
