Panelfly, the creator of “A New Day”, is the first-ever multi-platform interactive comic book. The platform architecture and unique transmedia storytelling approach integrates new forms of social media and content.
The platform introduces new storylines, and creatively produces new ways for the show’s creators and “Burn Notice” fans to engage in the storyline. Written by the creative team behind the show, the innovative series bridges the gap between seasons four and five.
Transcending the traditional two-dimension comic book experience, Panelfly’s platform brings “A New Day” to life for fans by supporting interactive games, hidden ciphers, artwork “peelaways” and more. Panelfly has developed “A New Day” as an iOS and Android application available on select mobile devices.
The new platform brings stories to life via the following features:
-The platform enables interactive games, ciphers and advice from friendly spymasters for each of the 12 issues
-A unique UX and proprietary authoring tools enables “peelaways” revealing the multiple steps of the art process including pencil, ink and color layers
-Platform architecture and API integration technology provides the ability to place exclusive video, preview clips, character bios, and interviews allowing content creators to engage fans in new ways and for fans to easily discover and interact
-Easy integration of relevant show social feeds including Burn Wire, RSS news feed and other show related Facebook and Twitter feeds
-Aggregation and integration of external social feeds and solutions creating real time connections to Burn Notice Chatter and other forums
Since the program can be uploaded on to an Android, the interactive comic book can be read or played anywhere. I visited Panelfly’s website and saw even more possible themes for interactive comic books, including “Red”, “Sergeant Zero”,” The Umbrella Academy” and “Fables”. Anyone interested in trying the app?
