Liam Sharp, Dave Gibbons, Gary Erskine, Doug Braithwaite, Mike Carey And More Launch Madefire – The Ultimate Digital Comic Book Reader?
At Bleeding Cool, we've been following the different types of digital comics that have been emerging.
Those that use limited animation. Those that use different layers, with limited special effects. Those that let you tip the tablet to see different layers. Those that show panels and test in separate actions to improve the impact of their arrival.
But Madefire seems to have taken all these together and put them into one, adding a few new tricks themselves. Check this trailer out. It still seems to preserve the comic book experience while stratching it as much as possible.
And they are launching with a stack of free comic books created in this format for some truly sensational names, albeit a little bit British… try downloading it now.
