Somil Gupta, co-founder of Planet 41 Mobiventures said that they were hitting notes of new-age consumers who prefer digital content over print editions.

The company has two versions of comics on mobile. The non-animated version is simpler where  they expand the text bubble of the comic to make it easier to read. In the animated version, it takes away the text bubble, and re-draw the vacuum that it creates. It also lip movements and hand movements to these comics, and use voice artists to spell the dialogue. The company also adds sound effects like lighting, explosion effects.
