Panels from The Portable Frank, written & drawn by Jim Woodring, Published by Fantagraphics, distributed by Comixology
This is the first comic aside from Hellblazer that i’ve read on my ipad mini since i got it, and I have to say, it’s almost perfect for the format. Woodring’s way of transitioning images between panels (in, ya know, a pretty trippy way) lends itself really well to the panel by panel viewing of the digital reader. As my boyfriend pointed out, it was like watching a silent animation. Plus even though the book for me was SD, the image quality was still superb (a happy surprise).
Anyone not already familiar with Jim Woodring’s fantastic & twisted universe (that manages to read like the best of children’s books while still being totally insane) please do not hesitate to look further into it.
