4 Future Comics: Ouija: A Panelplay
Artist Tommie Kelly sent us a link to his webcomic Ouija: A Panelplay, which uses what he calls “PanelPlay” which is basically clicking for the next panel, along with some subtle, appropriate animation effects. The story is nothing great, but it is a nice demo. I know panel-click advance comics have been around for a while, so in the comments, throw up some links to other recent Future Comics of note.

Comments

  1. I read through all of it — it’s a great exploration of the medium, and I do think it’s an entirely different medium from regular comics.

    It’s visual and all, and there are dialogue bubbles, but I think it might be most similar to an interactive, user-guided TV episode. Comics are designed so that you can look backwards and forwards as much as you like — the only option we had for this panelplay was to go forwards, because a click ANYWHERE on the panel would take it forwards.

  2. Not only is this link ‘nothing great’ it’s downright awful, BUT(!) the tech is pretty great.

    Holy shit! It is!

  4. Cheers for the post, much appreciated.

  5. So some took light box and embedded it into their blog. flash games in the 90s have been doing this with their how to play sections.
    enough already I want to see real Application of programming in comics and not a cheap tech demo.

    Didn’t Chris Ware “animate” his flowchart comic?

    During the 2010 ICv2 conference at NYCC, Mark Waid recommended balak.deviantart.com during the digital comics panel. (The site is blocked at work, so I can’t be certain.)

    Are there multi-path comics online? Or would those be considered text adventures with pictures?

  7. I have created three wordless panel plays so far. You can watch them here:

  8. Why are my posts not showing up? At any length, google me, you can read three of my panel plays on my web site.

  9. See if it works like this: http://www.ayalpinkus.nl .

    Wordless panel plays.

  10. Ayal: too many links and a post gets booted. I’ll try to retrieve.
