Panel Nine is the deluxe publisher of digital graphic novels, digital comics, sequential art and visual publications of all types.
Most recently we developed SEQUENTIAL the platform for the iPad that we believe to be the digital future of graphic novels and sequential art.
If you are in the UK or Ireland, you can download a copy of SEQUENTIAL for your iPad here:
With SEQUENTIAL we’re working with the world’s leading graphic novel publishers and creators to expand the market for one of the world’s most under-appreciated art forms – and rather than go the tired old commercial route with the inclusion of superheroes, a genre that has tainted and held back the art form for too long, we stand in *opposition* to what that genre represents and instead feature only accessible, intelligent, entertaining, life-enhancing storytelling at its visual and verbal best.
The time is right to evangelise graphic novels and sequential art anew. Quality graphic novels are being nominated for–and winning–major literary awards such as the Costa Prize; digital is making access to material available to most, and British and American publishers are leading a renaissance in quality material. SEQUENTIAL will be making quality graphic novels easily available to all in a specially engineered deluxe format, already acclaimed as the ‘gold standard’, with new features that expand the way in which graphic stories can be told.
SEQUENTIAL includes Page and Panel Mode (where you can view the whole page, or a panel at a time) and includes super fast swiping, pixel per second panel movement, control over transitions, and control over the size of the panel displayed in Panel Mode. We also allow for the inclusion of audio or video commentaries by the writer and artist. We’ve really sweated the small stuff to exploit the features of the iPad and other devices, and we believe we’ve created the best platform for reading graphic novels out there.
We are also the proud digital producer of The Phoenix, the UK’s newest, best and brightest comic for kids. Our interactive iPad version allow the young, and the young at heart to enjoy joyful comics around the globe.
