Half cartoon, half comic book, this is amazing!
A great idea and excellent execution
I've been following the development of this comic and I was glad to download it. The animations were very nice with fun audio and a unique storyline. I'm looking forward to more.
Very unique and enjoyable
What a brilliant new way to do comics! Art, animation, voice and story get 5 stars. The app did crash once and some touches got very sluggish so 1 star deducted. Wish there was a way to zoom individual panels like in the Xcomics app. I really look forward to more issues!
