Superman – the granddaddy of all superheroes, the one who started it all, the icon who is held to higher standard in fiction and has set the standards for many of us in the non-fiction world. It’s no wonder why the franchise is almost 80 years strong and growing stronger.
From comic creator Mark Waid: originally posted at http://markwaid.com/?p=695 Hi. Mark Waid here. As promised if you were paying attention at WonderCon today during my spotlight panel, here’s a free PDF download of a short digital-comics story I did as proof-of-concept with the talented artist Jeremy Rock. It’s a little zombie story called “Luther”, and it’s a sample of the approach I’m taking to my long-promised–and now imminent–series of Digital Comics. Download it for free. Open it in whatever program you use to read PDF files. A simple right-click or page-tap takes you through, screen by screen, dead simple. For best results, view it full-screen, landscape format, so each image reads as a separate “page.” And enjoy. Free from Jeremy and me to you. If you like it, we could use your assistance. Send the link to your friends. In fact, I encourage you to share “Luther” with as many people as you like. Help us spread the word. Help us show off what we think Digital Comics can be. Help point the audience here. It’d be much appreciated. Then come back here April 2 to see what else I have in mind for the future of webcomics and find out how you can participate. This is big.
Kingdom Come by Mark Waid and Alex Ross was the mega comic book event of the 1990’s. The story is complex and has multiple layers upon layers opened to interpretation by the reader. The artwork is breathtaking, which shows almost every DC character that has existed before 1990, the gauche paintings could be looked at for hours. They are, in fact, so complex that a separate guide of characters had to be created.
