As a Html5 experiment over on Clamnuts.com I made an interactive comic using Hype.
I’ve been keeping a keen eye on other html5 comics and interactive webcomics but I’ve yet to find one that really makes use of narration by the artist. I love Bifter and the innovative way they use SVG but I wanted to make a comic that would let me speak and could be more or less understood with out interaction.
Interactive comics have huge potential if done right, I remember seeing on the news about ‘motion comics’ where they cut up lame Spiderman comics and have him swinging between buildings. Wow.
I think the most obvious, easy to implement and powerful application for html5 storytelling is allowing the option to hear the author.
This was made in Hype but just as I was half way through it I got a mail from Smith Micro the makers of Manga Studio about their new html5 comic tool MotionArtist so I’m going to try it out for my next html5 comic project. Although their website made me feel ill looking at it.
Here at Wukomi we are experimenting with using Html5 within iBooks for medical and education purposes. Html5 is becoming more and more pervasive on News sites for their infographics and it’s something we are keen to try.
We offer professional custom comic book creation and application design.
