I was never a fan of newspaper comics. Calvin and Hobbes may have been the first comic I ever read, but once it ended, that was it for me, everything else seemed formulaic and contrived to me with no room for any real artistry. That may or may not be true, but itâ€™s how I feel.
Now, comic BOOKS, thatâ€™s another story. Just as Calvin and Hobbes was ending I began devouring X-Men, and Spider-Man and Batman, and itâ€™s where my love of comic comes from, what originally inspired me to make a career out of comics.
Those are the kind of comics I love and the kind of comics I want make, but theyâ€™re not dominating the web.

Or maybe both?
Today weâ€™re (and by â€œwe,â€ I mean â€œmeâ€, but you can totally comment) going to talk about the emergence of comics on mobile devices. Why? Because itâ€™s Tuesday, and Tuesday is the day we talk about comics on mobile devices. Conditions are perfect. (Has anyone figured out I really dig Flight of the Conchords yet?)
Anyway, conditions ARE perfect as the dudes and ladies in tech keep cranking out more and more shiny devices that you can read comics on, or create content for, so click read more, and read some more.
