Every Which Way…


Charmed this morning by To Be Continued, a collaboration between Italian writer/artist Lorenzo Ghetti of delebile and German web designer Carlo Trimarchi.

After all these years, I guess we’re still in the early stages of test-driving different navigational modes for webcomics. I like how this one plays with different modes from chapter to chapter. Probably confusing for new viewers, but the thing feels so crisp and user friendly, and the storytelling is so sharp, I could see readers staying on board for the long haul.

I took a really long break from webcomics to work on The Book. Fun stuff like this makes me want to dive back in.

[Thanks to gio for the heads-up]

    I would be compelled to hide hidden panels in the empty spaces that you don’t see when you are scrolling by. Like some kind of secret side story that will foreshadow future events for the readers that find it but could be an interesting “reveal” for those who find out about it later.

  2. The sequence where a character was watching “Be A Man” from “Mulan” is one of the best things I’ve seen in ages. :-)

    Yaay! Comic Recs! Your blog used to be my favorite place to learn about new webcomic happenings and I missed it. I learned about the coolest things here. Seriously looking forward to “The Sculptor” though. Congratulations on finishing it.
