I’m trying to decide if I’m going to Only Human, my cyberpunk story, as a digital or a web comic.
A digital comic (like Mark Waid and friends over at Thrillbent) would allow for transitions, controlling the viewing pace, and would be suited for mobile devices. It’s an innovative way to do comics these days. It engages the reader and creates something distinctly different from print comics. But I can’t seem find a script to handle the navigation. Also, I won’t be able to post the comics on Tumblr (with its wonderful hash tags and reblogging features).
I have experience with static webcomics, and know how to set up a website just fine. Compared to a digital comic, a webcomic is less labor intensive. Webcomics are also print friendly. But webcomics are also a dime a dozen these days. A cyberpunk theme isn’t enough to stand out now.
Unless I can find a good navigation script, I think I’m going to lean towards a webcomic. Perhaps I can convert to a digital comic later. Any suggestions where to look for the code I need? Any other thoughts or ideas?
