I was quoted here in this Bleeding Cool review of the Comixology Panel I was on at NYCC, where they announced their new “Guided View Native” branding that will highlight comics such as Power Play, which make special use of the tools available in digital comics to tell stories in a new way.
One thing the article writer says is this:
Alejandra Bodden (@alebodden11) writes from NYCC;
I have to say that I was a non-believer. I was adamant against trying digital anything (even having a kindle, which I had to get as an English Major), but even more so toward digital comics. What can I say? I am an old fashioned girl; I like the smell of paper and the feel of it on my hands and fingers as I pass the pages. Though after sitting through this panel I must say that my view has completely changed and now I want to save up for a tablet to experience this myself.
I’m glad that she notes her bias and change of heart here, because this is something I’ve been hearing A LOT over the past couple of years since Kurt and I launched Power Play.
Now Comixology is bringing more attention to their Guided View Native comics, such as Power Play and comics like it that use the same unique way of telling a story. Hopefully this will make these comic (such as The Eighth Seal or Motorcycle Samurai) easier to find, and give them the chance to change more minds in favor of digital comics.
Give them a look, I’m sure we’ll win you over as well!
