Screendiver – the Digital Comics Directory is a growing collection of the world’s best interactive comics. From short interactive web comics to ambitious interactive comic apps, Screendiver is the goto place for adventurous comic readers. If you are interested in how new technologies influence how comic stories are experienced and stories are told, Screendiver is the place to be.
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 interactive 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 clear that the distribution of these kind of pioneering productions was one of the main challenges. In other words, we needed to work on our discoverability. We collectively came up with the idea to create this online directory that collects the best interactive comics, regardless of their intended platform. We launched Screendiver.com in January 2017. You can also find us on Twitter and Instagram. And there’s a Screendiver Facebook group. You’re welcome to join!

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.
