My name is Chris Hoffman and I'm a comic book creator, I self-publish a comic book called Banana Panic. I have an iPhone engine but with all the android tablets coming out soon, I'd like to explore being there too.
Ultimately my vision is to create a engine that small alternative comic book creators could use to get their inde stories into the marketplace, bypassing publishers. I've seen the CBR readers but I'd like something that self-publishers could charge for thus really taking the product straight to the consumer.
Version 1 would be pretty straight forward. Panel-by-panel comics with the option to see the whole page. In Version 2 I'd like to add the option of adding or removing characters to change the outcome of the story.
This is a demo of the iPhone app so you can see how it works:
Here's a clip of me talking about the iPhone app on Utah local news:
Feel free to PM me if this sounds interesting. I'd could really use some estimates on how much you think an app like this would run.
Thanks and I'm looking forward to hearing your suggestions.
