Comic Vook

As digital publishing sweeps up printed matter of all genres and formats, producers of comic books and graphic novels are making their presence known. Marvel offers a monthly subscription to its digital comics collection: thousands of online versions created from the original files used to print them. Daily Bits did a roundup of graphic novels available free online, from a gritty murder mystery to the whimsical tale of a girl and her salamander spirit friend. At Vook, we’re thrilled that comics and graphic novels are taking the plunge into the digital ocean, but we’d like to make one suggestion: add video to the mix. A Comic Vook could include videos related to key plot moments, behind the scenes footage of artists and writers working in tandem, and even live reports filmed at the story’s location. Ok, so we won’t be shooting video on Planet Krypton, but Japanese rice paddies and African jungles are within the realm of possibility.
