Yves Bigerel (known as Balak01 on DeviantArt) created a couple of comics showing how the sequential use of space can be used to tell stories through time.

i like the idea..

only thing i'd do is put page numbers on the first one as well as i reloaded it 3 times before realising you had to click thru black pages to get it going...

the second one worked much better as it had page numbers and the graphics didn't stay black so it looked to be working from the start.

also point people over to toon boom as well..cheaper than flash and if they want to go pixel basd then either use piccies from phop or painter or tv paint...or lightwave!

i'd add i love your drawing style...you have a bundle of talent there!

Brilliant. Although seemingly small, it is a new paradigm. Very fun examples. Love the concept and look forward to seeing more. I especially like how the comic can act out in-place and how frames can be layered ontop or next to one another so you can still sense the surroundings, where things take place and how they play out concurrently. When the characters were conversing to the reader I also felt a greater sense of participation simply by clicking the button (as if giving a nod) than I've done in the past reading similar passages in a paper comic. With paper comics I most often feel like a 3rd party looking in from the outside.

Thanks for links.
