I'm working on motioncomics.io to improve the way comics/manga are made and consumed on the web.

Building motion comics with HTML, CSS and JS.

To help me know which features to build into motioncomics.io, I've started building motion comics with code to gather some feedback on what kind of motion comics readers would enjoy reading.

The first motion comic I made with code is a web-based imitation of the motion comic cutscenes of the game Gravity Rush 2. Check it out here:

gravity-rush.motioncomics.io

I received some good feedback on makingcomics.slack.com:

  1. Rough and unpolished speech bubbles
  2. Confusion regarding how to navigate the panels
  3. Confusing unconventional panel flow due to lack of explanation

Other issues were listing too, along with encouragement regarding the concept.

The next step is to address those issues. I have already polished the speech bubbles and the two other issues will be addressed soon.

Introduction of a paid plan

Using paddle.com, motioncomics.io now charges new users $10/month and existing users get to use it for free for a year. Visitors can click on "Open Demo" on the home page and try motioncomics.io without signing up.

Demo added to the homepage

I received feedback that motioncomics.io lacked a demo to demonstrate what the tool could do. So a demo motion comic was added to the homepage and now it only takes a few seconds to understand value proposition of motioncomics.io.
