Watchmensch Launches New iPhone Comics Reader – The Weasel

Posted by November 20, 2009 One Comment

IMG_0012Watchmensch, my Watchmen comic book parody that takes a trip through the tussles between creators and publishers over the last seventy-odd years, is already available on PanelFly, and Comixology any day now.

But now it exists as its own App in its own reader, designed by Mike Meyer of Weasel Floss Studios, creators of the iBuddha. Who also coloured Watchmensch.

The Weasel Reader has been designed to optimise the reading experience on an Apple iPhone sized screen – how it handles pages, and individual panels, whatever their shape.

And it works a little like this.

Or so I’m told, I don’t actually have an iPhone. But it looks quite pretty from where I’m sitting.

I understand the iWeasel people are talking to other publishers about how to maximise their reader experience. I feel rather honoured to be their first.

Download a copy here, do tell me what you think of it – the comic and the reader.
