NYC2123: A graphic novel to go

If you're into reading post-apocalyptic graphic novels on your portable device, then NYC2123 is right up your alley.

The first full-length graphic novel for the Sony PSP. In 2054 a massive tsunami devastates Manhattan. The island's bridges and tunnels are destroyed.

The frames of the novel are optimized for the 480X272 screen of the Sony PSP, and there's a PSP-friendly version of the website. If you don't have Sony's handheld gaming platform, you can view the JPG frames of the "book" using any device with a suitable image viewing application. Desktop users can get their fix at the main website, and several sequences provide a flip-book like experience by quickly advancing through the frames, creating an animated motion effect.

NYC2123 has been released under a Creative Commons License, and readers are encourage to "remix, mash-up, and translate." German language versions of the first two issues are available thanks to fan translations.

Been looking forward to the release of the 2nd issue.

The first issue has got me hooked, too bad they only come out monthly
