Editors’ Choice

With synchronized sound effects, music, motion, and layered illustrations, Madefire Motion Books aren't your average comic books. Whether you’re swiping through panoramic pictures, watching characters’ speech bubbles appear, or even making choices that affect the story, it’s clear that what Madefire does can't be repeated on physical paper. Each of Madefire’s immersive Motion Books sits somewhere between full-fledged animation and comics—and each is bound to leave a lasting impression.

The only thing of it's kind

I saw one movie in the early 2000's about a girl that traveled to outer space and it used this technique - semi-animated stills. I really liked it. It's a nice blend of reading and watching, but at the time nothing else like it existed. It was an anomaly - then years later, along comes this app, and to my surprise, it was totally based on that concept I liked. Anyways not for everyone, but if you like comics, you'll probably enjoy it.

This is nice.

Although I am an old-school comic book guy. This is app can help me transition into....
"The Future". The reason being, (one of them at least) is, this app can help me discover NeW comic books.
Comics I would have never had the opportunity to read, because most comic shops could never stock & display all the material these days. Discover new artist, writer's, heros, etc.
It's cool on a phone, but it'd be great on a tablet. 🤓👍🏻
