Power Play #1 broke all the rules and helped pave the way for many Digital Only comics

http://blog.comixology.com/spotlight/ 

Comixology is on it’s way to an impressive 100 million downloads.  That’s A LOT of comics people have read through their service, and to celebrate their road to nine-digits they’re offering a new free comic every day.  It’s pretty cool that my own Comic Power Play is one of the ones they’re handing out, so take the opportunity to download the first issue and give it a try for free

It’s one of the first comics to truly make use of their digital format and tell a story in a way that can only be told digitally, in a way that really elevates the artform (as opposed to crumby animation that people only pretend to be comics). 

So give it a shot, cost-free, and if you like it check out one of the two later issues.  I’d love to hear what you think!

It’s a perfect chance to check the innovative digital series out for no cash, and see what kind of comic is possible on digital media such as iPads, iPhones, Kindles, Droids, or even just your home computer.

Progressively Aggressive Sit Down w/Marvel’s Reilly Brown C2E2

PA: You’ve done a plethora of work for Marvel including the Marvel Holiday Special in 2005, Marvel Apes: The Amazing Spider-Monkey #1, Hercules: Fall of an Avenger, just tons of [work]. What’s your personal favorite book to work on?

RB: My two favorite things I’ve worked on were the Cable and Deadpool stuff and the Incredible Hercules story. Particularly the Thorcules story where [Hercules] dresses up as Thor to woo an Asgardian Elf Princess, giving Thor a bad name in the process. Thor catches wind of this, isn’t happy, dresses up like Hercules and then they fight it out as each other. It was just a fun, goofy story. Fred Van Lente and Greg Pak did an awesome job on that.

"Reilly’s art is extremely fun, and amazingly good. His characters are life-like, yet remain playful enough to articulate the humor of the book."

"With it’s realistic and funny dialogue, and frenetically fantastic art, I’d still have dug Power Play—it’s a rad comic. But Christenson & Brown’s use of the digital arena to present comics in a new way for a new platform is what really fluffs my feathers. Instead of adapting, they’re pushing forward and I dig it. Also? A dude who turns into beer (and maybe pizza) is exactly what I’ve always wanted."
