Letterer: Dave Acosta
Very few places have managed to actually thrive since the early post-Pulse years, but Marston is one of them. When Sam, Liz and Ray arrive in the town, it represents an opportunity to rest and reenergise before quickly moving on once again… but that’s not enough anymore for one of them. And internal division isn’t the only threat facing the three survivors, because as Marston has grown, so have the dangers it contains.
Aspen Comics has announced the launch of over 350 new and classic titles from the publisher’s digital library available starting on October 23 on Madefire. Madefire delivers Motion Books, an interactive audio-visual reading format that combines art and sound for a new style of digital storytelling. The new titles will be available on both the Madefire iOS and Android apps for tablets and smartphones. Madefire Motion Books & Comics has been a 5-star rated app since launch and recently recognized in the iOS App Store as an Editors’ Pick, Best New Apps and Best of July (2014).
The Madefire Motion Book Tool was also recently launched to the public in July and has been continuously developed with the creator in mind. Taking static art a step further by incorporating movement, sound and depth to visual reading, the platform continues to push the limits in digital storytelling. New features have been introduced to allow for a more streamlined creative process like creating covers with a click of a button and animating art in a few simple steps. Publishing to the web has never been easier and can take as little as 5 minutes. The ease of sharing your story on a website or blog is also more fluid now with an embed code automatically created when the book is published, giving the creator control of where and how their story is told.
The first wave of Aspen Comics’ books on Madefire will cover a large variety of titles including Michael Turner’s Fathom and Soulfire, Executive Assistant: Iris, Lola XOXO in addition to a majority of the publisher’s past library of books. New releases such as Aspen’s upcoming The ZooHunters will also be available day and date on November 5. Aspen Comics plans to include titles from their all-new Big Dog Ink imprint soon as well.
