Madefire motion books continue to delight and surprise, and the latest creation of Liam Sharp ‘Metawhal Alpha’, combines his Lovecraftian-inspired horror narrative, with David Lupton’s dark and horrific artwork. The motion book also highlights the impact of sound within motion books, and it’s effectiveness within the context of the horror genre is particularly unsettling.

Quote from the website:

Kevin Milner has a rotting corpse in his mill. A BIG corpse. How and why it is there he cannot possibly guess. And it keeps disappearing and returning with great chunks taken out of it. A Lovecraftian tale of urban horror, this illustrated short story will keep you guessing all the way to its terrifying conclusion!

The rise of ‘Motion Books’

9 11 2015

The past couple of years have largely been a transition from someone battling through the challenges of working on a PhD, to moving country and becoming a full time lecturer in Canterbury Christ Church university in Kent. As a result, this blog has taken a back seat, as my duties as a lecturer, researcher, designer and website developer have taken their toll. However, my research continues, and I hope to return to this blog on a more regular basis very soon. The focus may change slightly to reflect more broadly upon the digital comic book field in general, but my interest in motion comics and Madefire’s motion books will no doubt feature in several posts.
