From today’s Action Comics. Okay, much has been discussed about the trillions of dollars worth of damage done to Metropolis by Superman in Man Of Steel. In comparison a couple of iPads… sorry, Q-Pads… are rather minor. But this act of wanton vandalism wasn’t done to save lives, but to help his colleague Cat get […]
UPDATE: Yes, sorry folks, UK and Ireland only… Sequential, the digital boutique graphic novel app that we covered in depth a few weeks ago, has gone live on Apple iOS devices. Launch titles include From Hell, Nelson, Verity Fair, Bolland Strips, Hugo Tate and more. Many of the titles include extras, including audio tracks. The […]
People have been asking for this for a while and Marvel have been promising it. It went to beta in December but now it’s all proper and everything. Marvel Digital Comics Unlimited, or now the less DC Comics-baiting Marvel Unlimited is a fully fledged iOS App, delivering all-you-can-eat streaming of past Marvel comics to subscribers. […]
if the child-friendly cut down has left you personally jonesing for a more adult-oriented Die Hard fix, and you've played your copy of the original until the silicon turned to vinegar, there might still be an option... or maybe not really...
Dan Lebental has designed and released a fascinating new bit of editing kit for the iPad and I do think I'm going to get myself a copy.
Bleeding Cool has been repeatedly praising Phoenix Comic, a weekly anthology comic for kids sold in Britain. Indeed we’ve suggested that if you know kids in the UK that don;’read Phoenix, it’s tantamount to neglect not to let them read Phoenix. Well now I’m taking that international. As Phoenix Comic has launched a newiOS app, […]
The Marvel Digital Comics Unlimited digital subscription service, where thousands of comics have been made available for all-you-can-eat consumption, has been arranged in Beta for compatability with iOS, dropping the Flash language version that prevented it before. But in doing so, they let anyone try it out… for free. As long as you can guess […]
It’s still just in beta. But it’s on its way, Marvel’s all-you-can-eat digital service, the Marvel DCU, to be available on Apple devices such as the iPad, iPhone and iTouch, now that Flash is no longer needed…
In a new video David Berlanga looks at the merits of reading digital comics on the Samsung Galaxy Tablet 10.1 over and above the new retina screen iPads. He starts by comparing print to digital, befoire comparing your digital reading choices around the eight minute mark. During which he makes some very valid points I […]
Well isn’t that interesting? A Walking Dead iOS game… nothing unusual in that. But it’s one that’s visually and tonally based on the comic book rather than the TV series. Walking Dead: Assault plays like a decent rescource-managed action fighter like Judge Dredd but, unlike that game, it uses artistic elements directly from the comic […]
So anyway, I got this massive Anomaly graphic novel hardcover through the post. I opened it. I filmed it. And then filmed it through the Anomaly iPad app. And discovered a whole new world… [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H5HTTcOhxH0[/youtube] The Augmented Reality kicks in around 3:30. I don’t do all the pages, but I film a fair number of […]
Lyndon Antcliff writes for Bleeding Cool 1. You wont get mugged over a copy of Vogue, but you will if you read it on an iPad. Being a book worm, although these days you would have to call it a content addict. I have perfected over a number of years the art of walking down […]
Questions will be answered. In this case, by you.
Matt Harding writes for Bleeding Cool; Madefire Studios, the makers of interactive digital comics “Treatment,” and “Mono” introduced us yesterday to their new iPhone app, which mirrors their existing iPad application perfectly. The stories remain completely interactive, including “Mono’s” insane 360 panel. The app exists for almost all iPhone models, including my clunky 3GS, as […]
Louis Falcetti writes for Bleeding Cool; I have no experience with romance comics. Romance, I’m fairly well acquainted with, although we haven’t been on speaking terms as of late. I love comic books, but they seem to be the genre that I have the least romantic experience with. I enjoy having my heart torn open […]
Inlcuding an extended trailer for the film.
When a American customer purchases comics via the iOS Comixology app, Apple adds almost 9% sales tax onto the final price. However, making the same purchase via the Comixology website does not incur the same tax.Even if you do it on your iPad with the Safari browser. Of course, it’s not just that 9% that […]
For years, Americans and Brits have been trying to deal with the tricky problem, how to sell the British sci-fi weekly anthology comic 2000AD in the USA. Because, while there is a terribly efficient distribution system that gets American comics to the UK, on sale hours before they are available in America itself, the same […]
At Bleeding Cool, we’ve been following the different types of digital comics that have been emerging. Those that use limited animation. Those that use different layers, with limited special effects. Those that let you tip the tablet to see different layers. Those that show panels and test in separate actions to improve the impact of […]
I wondered when this would come. I saw this first with The Thrill Electric (still available as a free App). A comic cut into foreground, middle ground and background, animating the distances between them but not affecting the frozen frame of comic, or introducing 1animation. Then I came across The Bane Of Yoto (also available […]
