CFx comics app has helped bring a digital version of traditional comics into the spotlight, creating a broad platform for comic creators and readers. This project is the first of its kind where a digital platform is being set for content generation & publication and bringing on a number of artists/creators together on one platform. The CFx comics app is providing a cinematic comic book reading experience designed to immerse the reader in a world of action, drama, and adventure.

Background

CFx comics has been at the forefront of developing unique creative content to address social issues. Even though comic books have been around for a long time, they aren’t competitive enough as compared with other entertainment options that capture a larger market.
As the comic market is limited in scope for independent comic creators to use, the objective was to develop a publishing platform for thriving comic book artists around the world that enables them to publish their content digitally through the app.

The Challenge Was To

OneByte spent a great deal of time trying to understand how to develop a flexible platform with monetization opportunities and revenue generation. The challenge was to make the content available in a way that could be packaged as entertainment, not just for reading but with a whole curated experience including background music and animations. Also, the stories in the app needed to be immersive and cinematic enough that follows the readers into the real world.
