The second issue of AGE OF BRONZE “SEEN”, the landmark enhanced book iPad app based on Eric Shanower’s award-winning graphic novel series, is set to hit the iTunes App store on Wednesday, November 23, 2011.
Continuing Shanower’s epic story chronicling the Trojan War, Issue #2 of AGE OF BRONZE “SEEN” moves the action to the city of Troy and introduces many of the iconic characters whose lives will shape the tragic outcome, including Priam, King of Troy; Hekuba, his wife; Kassandra, the prophetess destined never to be believed; and Menelaus, husband of the beauteous Helen.
Enhanced by John Dallaire’s rich colors and Thomas Beasley’s interactive commentary, AGE OF BRONZE “SEEN” creates an enhanced book experience unlike any other digital comic.
Reviews for AGE OF BRONZE “SEEN” #1 highlight the groundbreaking interactive approach: Stumptown Trade Review wrote “All I have to say is, ‘bring me more!’ I sure hope other creators/publishers get on board with this (and create more comics worthy of this kind of interaction).”
Geeks of Doom’s critic, Bad Monkey, wrote “…having such a wealth of extras just a tap away is too compelling and addictive to ignore. If this is the future of digital comics, I might be sold. At a 99 cents price tag, it’s definitely worth checking out for yourself.”
Geeks of Doom says in their review of Age of Bronze “Seen” :
“…having such a wealth of extras just a tap away is too compelling and addictive to ignore. If this is the future of digital comics, I might be sold. At a 99 cents price tag, it’s definitely worth checking out for yourself.”
In their article ”This is How Digital Comics Should Work,” Stumptown Trade Review says of Age of Bronze “Seen”:
“All I have to say is, “bring me more!” Can you imagine reading From Hell or Asterios Polyp, or Finder with all the notes and information that is embedded in the images but relegated to end notes brought to the forefront in an easily accessible product? I sure hope other creators/publishers get on board with this (and create more comics worthy of this kind of interaction).”
