    1. 1. MODULAR COMICS 2.0 Optimizing comics content for a seamless user experience across platforms.poststarboy.com @kwanzer
    2. 2. PROBLEM Creating content for one medium to repurpose for another diminishes the user experience in the receiving medium. ๏ Repurposing print comics for web and mobile crops content awkwardly and inconsistently. ๏ Repurposing web comics for mobile crops content awkwardly and are sometimes not standard print dimensions. ๏ Repurposing digital comics for print limits layout options. ๏ Repurposing animated reveals in digital comics creates panel redundancy or omitted content in print.poststarboy.com MODULAR COMICS 2.0 @kwanzer
    3. 3. PARAMETERS Panels, screens and pages all tell stories via a rectangular viewing area. ๏ Use mobile screen viewing and panning as the basis for an easy reading experience. ๏ Story beats should take advantage of the viewable area of a landscape mobile screen and use it for directed storytelling (users should not need to pinch, zoom, or manually explore panels). ๏ The mobile view should follow the direction that readers’ eyes would take on a printed page. ๏ Do not create panels or beats that necessitate turning the mobile device. ๏ Do not create animated reveals in digital comics using the same panel unless they are markedly different and contribute to the story’s pace.poststarboy.com MODULAR COMICS 2.0 @kwanzer
