Mark Waid on his personal digital-comics revolution  | Comics Issue | Interview | The A.V. Club

AV Club have an interesting and insightful interview with Mark Waid (Daredevil, Thrillbent) He speaks about digital comics in it too!

 

 

AVC: With Marvel’s digital Infinite Comics, did they approach you with the idea, or did you approach them?

MW: They approached me. [Chief Creative Officer Joe] Quesada and I have known each other forever, and he knew I was working on something very similar. Out of the blue one day, he calls and says, “Listen. I’ve been looking at the work of Yves Bigerel, the French artist who helped define what digital comics are, and I’ve been looking at some other guys, and I know you’ve been looking at that same sort of stuff. Here’s what we’re looking at doing. Can you help us figure out the best way to do it?” I was all over it. I was very flattered by the fact that Joe was paying attention to what I’d been working on, and what had become my pet project. So while we were putting together the beginnings of the Thrillbent site, I also basically came across town and worked with Marvel and helped them develop the storytelling tools for the Infinite Comics they’re doing. It was the joy of collaboration, because it was me and Stuart Immonen, who is a very forward thinker when it comes to artwork and how to make artwork on a digital platform. I’ve been really lucky to be working with him and some other guys in upcoming issues, guys who are really interested in exploring doing comics for digital. That doesn’t just mean doing print comics and scanning them in.
