Moore And Reppion’s The Thrill Electric Hits The iPad And iPhone For Free

  It was one of the most significant digital comic books last year. Finding a way to blend both comics and animation without losing the strengths of both. The Thrill Electric also told a digital story from over a hundred years ago, through the emergence of the electronic telegraph and the societal changes that brought with it – and the personal lives it changed. Real life steampunk.

Written by Leah Moore and John Reppion, designed by Emma Vieceli, illustrated by The Windflower Studio and brought into being by littleloud and Hat Trick for Channel Four, it’s now been released as an App for Apple devices, for free. Which is probably the best home for it as well.

It remains as stunning as I was when released last year, and it remains my favourite digital comic to date. If it doesn’t garner an Eisner Award nomination, there will be blood.

Go download and experience it again, in what may be its ideal format.
