Page 14 Book 5: Malevolent Machinations
This should be interesting.
To see this page in regular-o-vision, click here. What you see above in the penultimate frame is the result of a test to see if I can a. make the website accept non-png files as comic pages and display them appropriately and b. make gif images with basic fading animation at least. The fading here is a little too quick to properly suit the context but it’s a good proof of concept (Assuming you readers out there actually can see it…).
There were quite a few complaints about the action-packed initial pages of the book, especially when the action in static frames made it difficult to understand what was going on, so I put my head to ways to solve that. I don’t think this method will be common, at least not for some time, but it is pretty interesting and opens up some remarkable avenues for my artistic flair for the dramatic to move into later on.
