Publishers Weekly: Behind the Digital Line
As digital comics have become a driving force of the medium, more publishers and creators have launched digital first lines of comics. How do publishers and creators deal with the unique properties of the web and tablet? How do readers react? Are they an evolution from webcomics or their own medium? And how will technological evolution affect storytelling as more choices arise? PW's Calvin Reid discusses the digital evolution with the people behind digital lines, including Aces Weekly's David Lloyd, Monkeybrain's Alison Baker, New Paradigm's Brandon Perlow, Black Mask Studio's Matt Pizzolo, and Sequential's Russell Willis.
