Draggable Canvas

This is a cool innovation. The newly renamed More Fun (now called Smithson) has a new episode up that has a “drag” navigation, somewhat like you can do with a PDF in Adobe Reader. Now do I want to have to read all of my webcomics this way? No but it’s a great idea and it certainly gave me a feeling of holding the webcomic in my hands which, when you think about it, is a neat trick.

Wandering webcomic ronin. Created Comixpedia (2002-2005) and ComixTalk (2006-2012; 2016-?). Made a lot of unfinished comics and novels.


  1. Cool, that’s what I was aiming for.

    I like thinking in terms of a larger page. The majority of Smithson strips will probably just use a scrollbar, but the occasional larger page needs something extra.

    As Bo has pointed out in that TalkAboutComics thread, there are some disadvantages to that kind of navigation, but hopefully it’s a good experience for most people. Feel free to stop by the thread and weigh in with your navigation ideas!
