We’ve discussed the significance of comics going mobile here before. Most of the offerings out there are repurposed content. Comic panels seem to transfer well, but comic strips or comic book panes require cutting out art or scrolling/flipping to make them fit on the smaller screens. Norm Feuti, creator of Retail and Gill has experimented with comic strip layouts for the iPhone that doesn’t require scrolling of flipping to a new panel.
I created a comic called Nelson as an experiment to see if I could fit an entire comic strip on a single iPhone screen. The result being a strip you could read quickly without having to flip through panels.
Iâ??m not sure how well the format works, but I liked the gags and characters I came up with. Iâ??ve posted all 24 samples below. Comments are welcome.
