Publishers rethink comics for tablets – Variety

I liked reading this – it was good to see it’s not just the smaller creators who are writing and creating for digital reading!

When readers opened “Aquaman #1,” last fall, they saw sinister bioluminescent creatures ascending the black waters of the Atlantic. Swirling upward in six vertical panels across two pages, the layout was a coup for DC Comics chief creative officer Geoff Johns after the publisher pledged to release each new issue in its 52-book reboot day and date in print and on digital platforms such as tablets.

The increased usage of tablet computers is forcing comicbook publishers and scribes like Johns (“Green Lantern,” “The Flash,” “Superman”) to consider new ways of designing their books.

Tasked with writing stories that would play in print and pixels, Johns had to re-evaluate the medium since readers of digital comicbooks are ignorant of page breaks, focusing on stories panel by panel instead.

“Every panel becomes a page, which I find really fascinating,” Johns said. “Right when I saw that, I thought about how that could change the way you look at comics.”
