Every year SXSW becomes slightly more comic-centric, which I guess makes sense as comics become more focused on the digital experience. In this episode of Giant Size, host Moises Chiullan and I talk about digital comic success stories and how the relationship between the internet and comics creators is changing how we buy comics. Between our regular chatter, we have interviews with Code Monkey Save World's Greg Pak, Jonathan Coulton, and Drew Westphal, as well as conversations with head honchos from Comixology (CEO David Steinberger, John D. Roberts, and Chip Mosher) and one-half of the team that's made Chew a cult success for Image, artist Rob Guillory.
I think the best part of this show (no disrespect to the guests) is when Moises and I start talking about Marvel AR and how digital bells and whistles in comics should really work. It's the part of the show that inspired this episode's title, and I'd like to know what other people think about where our heads are at concerning how to make digital comics an all-together different experience than print.
