Murderdrome Comes to the iphone

Top British comic creators Al Ewing and PJ Holden have developed an iphone version of their new comics project Murderdrome. Find out more by watching the video below or visiting their blog.

While comics on phones are not a new idea -- ROK Comics has been bring the work of creators such as Keith Page, Rodrigo Ricci, Ian Gibson, David Fletcher and others as a WAP-based subscription service for over a year - because Murderdrome is on an iphone everyone has of course started wetting themselves about it...

Let's hope they get some good coverage. Generally, despite the huge number of web comics out there these days, I find very few comics news sites or magazines still seem to be ignoring the huge numbers of digital comics readers, noted in this piece in Publishing Week.
