Screendiver – the Digital Comics Directory is a growing collection of the world’s best interactive comics. They come in all shapes and sizes and are made for many different delivery platforms. This is a great thing in itself. But the challenge for most creators is to reach their potential audiences. That is where Screendiver comes in; to make it easier for audiences to discover high quality interactive comics in one place.
If you have a suggestion for an interactive comic or if you have a project of your own that you’d like to add to the directory, then please join the Screendiver Facebook group and post a link to your project.
Screendiver was conceived in 2014 at the Fumetto Comics Festival in Lucerne. Seven pioneers of interactive comics gathered in the Swiss town to take part in the first international exhibition dedicated to “motion comics.” They were Ezra Claytan Daniels (US), Daniel Burwen (US), Sutu (AUS), Jason Shiga (US), Baptiste and Julien Milési (CH) and Remco Vlaanderen of Submarine Channel (NL). During a panel discussion it became crystal clear that distribution is one of the major challenges for our projects. We collectively came up with the idea to create an online directory where we would collect the best interactive comics, regardless of their intended platform. We launched Screendiver.com in January 2017 along with the dedicated social media channels (Twitter, a Facebook group, Instagram).
