Introducing ‘Hilbert’s Place’

31 01 2016

I’ve begun work on a short comic book narrative that aims to explore possibilities with transmedia storytelling. The main protagonist (Hilbert), is someone who has been transformed into a being with incredible cosmic powers (and yes I was, and still am a huge fan of Jack Kirby!). I’ve created some initial sketches and ideas for a short-form comic book story. There is also a Twitter feed that features some of Hilbert’s thoughts and stories @hilbertsplace. I hope you enjoy the development of the story and please feel free to follow the feed and ‘converse’ with Hilbert! The comic will be coming out soon on various platforms.

So I relented … Plus one other thing

4 12 2012

Some time ago I wrote that I wouldn’t be buying an iPad in the near future. To be honest, I’d forgotten all about that particular post until I spotted it glaring at me today. The truth is I’m now an owner of a iPad and have the obligatory Comixology “App”. So what changed … Thinking purely from a consumer’s perspective, I think it was one of the best electronic purchases I ever made. I am an avid reader of comic books, of all genres and demographics. The iPad allows me to download just about any comic book title I would have bought in a comic book store, at anytime day or night. While I hope this isn’t the death of the comic book store, I do hope it helps to broaden the reach of comic book culture. The recent outcry against female cosplayers indicates that there’s more work to be done before comic book culture becomes a welcoming and accessible medium to all types of people.

To summarise, when I think of the growing maturity and diversity of the comic book medium, I find myself asking “If comic books have grown up … shouldn’t we?”
