Power Play is the creator-owned book I’ve been working on for the past few months with my writing partner, Kurt Christenson, and I’m excited to say that a free preview will be going live on Comixology on Wednesday, 7/20/11. Check it out here– http://www.comixology.com/ Or through Comixology’s super-awesome app on whatever digital device you prefer (iPod, Android, etc).
Everyone’s been talking about how the future of comics is digital, but we’re actually taking the plunge, making a comic that is primarily designed to be read on a digital platform.
We’re playing around with some storytelling techniques that simply aren’t possible in the print medium, and just giving it a shot to see what kind of comics are possible in the 21st century.
Our story revolves around Mac, a college student in NYC who suddenly finds himself with superpowers. Does he try to fight crime? Maybe try to take over the world? Maybe put his underwear on the outside just for fun? NO! He he joins the Power Play Games, a full contact, extreme sports league with other people with strange powers and remarkable abilities!
This preview will introduce you to Mac, The Ice Queen, Gowanus Pete and others, and take you on a quick tour of the world of Power Play.
So, please keep an eye out on Wednesday, and help spread the word!
