Academy of Art University Figments Comic
By Academy of Art University
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Explore 46 pages of original comic stories in beautiful digital format with intuitive panel-by-panel navigation. Figments, a comics anthology of genre-spanning short stories, is 100% student produced at the Academy of Art University. Each issue is a collection of short stories by different creators, some of which are continuing stories and some which stand solidly alone. Students at the Academy of Art University, collaborating as the Sequential Imagery Consortium, are working hard to create the best comics the world has ever seen. This 4th issue of Figments, the first available as a motion comic, debuts new creative talents and features the best of the graduating class.
I saw this running at comic-con and had to take a look at home, pretty great comic for the price. This app is full of student artwork and each of the six stories is very different stylistically - hard to pick a favorite, they are all so different and fun for different reasons. The in-panel animation is pretty unique, even after walking through a comics convention I didn't see anything else like this one, I would recommend this app to anyone who reads comics.
Only complaint would be that the biography page is tricky to exit, it takes a careful tap to get out of there. The autoplay feature from the menu is a very nice touch. A+
A must see!
The artwork is definitely the reason to download this app! If you were having any doubts whether or not you should check it out, it is completely worth taking a look. Why wouldn't you support these talented artists?! You can really see how much work has been put into the creation of the different short stories. Whether you like sci-fi, comedy, or action, Figments has something for everyone, and the best part... It's a MOTION COMIC!! Just getting to see the stories come alive is worth checking this out.
Congratulations to the creators of Figments on an amazing and entertaining accomplishment!
An entertaining, must read comic!
This comic is made up of different stories, each with their own entertaining plot and an art style to match. Each one is well made and there should enough variety to cater to whatever a reader fancies.
Furthermore, love the paneling and the use of motion graphics to get that extra dynamic feel. Will be looking forward to future releases!
