Next Monday we're publishing another great multimedia comic, this one from Luke Radl on the NATO Summit protests that took over Chicago last month. In "Chicago Is My Kind Of Town" Radl takes us through the street protests from an on-the-ground perspective. Here's a preview page, from a protest where veterans discarded their medals:
"Chicago" employs numerous multimedia elements embedded within its pages, allowing readers to explore it at their own pace. "Rendering all my text with html makes this (I think) the first comic report to be really search engine friendly," Luke says. "You can also explore each panel revealing asides, photos, audio, etc in a way that makes it more participatory. I wanted to put people in the shoes of someone who was there, and the multimedia aspects are kind of a way of saying "walk around."
