  • It seems like an appropriate title for the conference theme this year so I’ll try to make this come full circle.\n
  • How many are familiar here are familiar with graphic novels? How many read graphic novels or comics? They have sort of crept into our pop culture landscape and have a definite influence.\n

  • Digital Disruption is dominating the publishing landscape and comics is no exception.\n
  • Remarkably there has only been small changes in the printed comic aside from paper quality over the last 50 years. Most notably is coloring. Before coloring was done after the penciler, inker, and letterer was finished with a page and reproduced two-thirds the original size. \n
  • No we can go from a black and white page. To this.\n
  • Comic experimented with going on the web in the late ‘90s using Flash with no success. You were simply taking what was good about a comic book illustration and trying to make it animation unfortunately robbing the two mediums of the benefits that each have. \n
  • It really comes to distribution. Comic shops are really the only places to find comics. Graphic novels can be found in bookstores but some are actually being pulled off the shelves because of the exclusivity clause that Amazon has with DC Comics regarding the Kindle Fire.\n
  • Comics is a medium dominated by a genre. Could you imagine if every show you watched was a western or every book you read was science fiction? That’s pretty much how comics are.\n
  • Marvel and DC are the culprits because they primarily control distribution. \n

  • Enter the iPad and Kindle Fire. \n
  • So how do they get distributed on the iPad?\n
  • Two main competing apps in the Apple App Store but once again Marvel and DC have a firm control on these apps because of licensing agreements. The apps try to recreate a comic book experience on a touch device. Without trying to create a new experience with a new medium. Craig Mod the interface designer at Flipboard would say we need to re-ask the question “‘How do we make books digital?’ To, ‘How does digital affect books?’ It's the difference between Microsoft Encarta and Wikipedia.”\n

  • As an independent artist I wanted a relationship agnostic of the traditional publishers. I was quickly introduced the the Adobe Digital Publishing Suite.\n
  • It allows me to build my app/novel in InDesign…\n
  • and distribute in either the App Store or in this case Apple’s Newsstand. \n
  • So that’s a brief history of how comics and digital but where does the creative process start. How does this app happen?\n
  • It’s written and edited…\n
  • sketched out…\n
  • drawn…\n
  • laid out…\n
  • colored…\n
  • composed in InDesign…\n
  • \n
  • …thus making the “Pen Mightier than the Pixel.” I see digital, whether it’s the iPad or Kindle Fire and opportunity for graphic novels and comics to become more mainstream. Again the overall objective is to have more people reading our creations and stories…\n
  • …and not just this guy.\n
