Reconsidering the Shape of Comics?
Yesterday brought more information on Apple’s imminent multi-touch device, which looks to be aimed squarely at the print world.
Most of today’s comics publishers are likely to jump into the pool with their clothes on—print-style pages intact. But if Apple’s gadget is anything like what’s being described, we could see a shift over time from point-and-click fragmented delivery, like what we have on the Web today, to more continuous spatial metaphors of the sort a lot of us turn-of-the-century mad scientists were playing with. Should be interesting.
