Sony to beef up cellphone comics in Japan
Sony Pictures Entertainment Inc is going to be making 300+ mobile phone manga comics available
over the next year. Which is (right now at least) more than double the amount of their competitors. These comics won't be your regular read-flip page-read comics, they'll have a layer of interactivity,
The manga frames are specially formatted to fit on tiny mobile phone screens. Pop-up frames and vibration during action scenes add to the drama. Cell-phone comics with preprogrammed sound effects are also coming soon, said Toppan Publishing spokesman Katsunori Onishi.
