Use your iPad to experience "The Carrier," a complete 122-page graphic novel.

The Carrier is a story about what happens next.

"[The Carrier] was a really fun experience and I enjoyed reading it..."
-Dave Banks, Wired.com
"I felt the story was well planned and thought out... The Art in the carrier is solid and polished and seems like something you would pick up in your local comic book store."
-Dan Tabor, geekadelphia.com
"The artwork is really nice, and the story very intriguing."
-Bryan Deemer, comicgeekspeak.com
""The premise behind The Carrier, Evan Young's iPhone graphic novel, is fairly basic... The execution, however, is anything but simple."
-J.K. Parkin, comicbookresources.com

A function note: We've gotten the requests for pinch & zoom as a feature. It's in the works, and hopefully we'll have it in a future update!
What's New in Version 1.2
- added end page
Mediocre app, average comic
I applaud the attempt to take on compelling subject matter. The artwork serves the story well enough as a flat comic. However, as an app, this is bare minimum. No page browser, no ability to zoom, and it occasionally started crashing towards the end, making me have to laboriously swipe through the entire book to get back to my place.
Given how long this has been in the app store, it's time the creators updated this app to have the basic features we all expect from a digital comics experience today.
Graphics too small
This is supposed to be an iPad app, but the illustrations are so small that you can't even read the dialog. LAMEO
Boooriiiiing! And...., what a hell happens at the end?
