Madefire demonstrates why digital comic books should come alive at Comic-Con

Any knowledgeable fan of graphic fiction will tell you that Americans are responsible for making comic books popular, but it was a handful of Brits in the ’80s and ’90s that demonstrated their full potential as a storytelling medium. And if history is any indication, the same thing may happen in digital comics, thanks to newly launched iPad app Madefire.

Everything you need to know about getting into digital comic books

I have about 16 long boxes filled with comic books that are trapped with in plastic covered sleeves that haven’t been touched in well over five years now. Every time I move, I contemplate selling them off or donating them to an organization that wouldn’t just throw them away. I no longer even use the custom comic book boxes, nor do I protect them in shiny plastic with cardboard backings. I do, however, enjoy reading comics, which is why I’ve never been able to give them up. So, the thought of getting my comic books digitally was very appealing to me.
