The world's first and only superhero has disappeared after undergoing a cataclysmic fall from grace in the eyes of the world. Middle-aged and unable to support his operations he had made a preposterous claim that the world was in danger, a notion derided by the media and the public at large.

But what if the claim is true?

Outcast writer and infamous murderess Charlie Chance, AKA The Pet, finds herself searching for the one man who was able to bring her to justice-- Captain Stone.

Captain Stone: Confidential-

Episode 2-

These are great. The music suits the mood and has good transitions. The only problem being the 10 month update schedule...

Thanks for the story!

WOW Liam, you know your way around this app. I wish I could draw like that - all my art is derivative. I have to cull through tons of images on Bing of various themes to collect what I need, then crop and composite everything. It's time consuming. That was a beautifully rendered piece to story teling and artwork, I loved it. I'm going to continue on this road to discovery. I have the equipment and software, I just need better material. Maybe if I team up with and artist ,eh? Well thanks for you input, I'll read ya next time!

It's definitely a perfect tool for teaming up because you can log in to the page you are working on at the same time somebody else on the other side of the planet logs in, and you can both work on a project together, in real time. I love that, and it's only possible because the tool is in the cloud. :-)

Thanks again for the kind words. Very much appreciated!

Wow, Liam. What a great read! I've been a bit skeptical about motion comics in general, but you have really made great use of the medium and have created a unique comic book reading experience. I'm totally hooked and can't wait to read more!

Hey Vinton!

Thank you! And I get the scepticism. The problem, we think, was that previously to just sat back and watched motion comics. They were basically very poor animations. But motion books are not like that. You still read them. You control the experience. You interact. :-)

Absolutely delighted you enjoyed it so much!

It's great, Liam. The story and the presentation go pretty hand in hand. The dream sequence towards the end where you explore the dream scape does add a really vivid touch that demonstrates what can be done with the app.

And I would say this because this comic is mostly narrated by her, but Charlie Chance steals the show. :salute:

Will read the unfolding drama with interest. :)

page 14, what song is it?

LiamSharp Featured By Owner Jul 11, 2014  Professional Artist
It's actually completely made up. Most of the music for this I created myself using Garage Band, but that track was by a friend called Wendell Yuponce. I asked him to produce a piece that sounded like a 1980s track. It's very reminiscent of New Order's 'How Does It Feel'. Hope that helps! :-)

Oh my gosh I got goosenips all over me *o* That was an AMAZING book. To thing people would be able to make things like this! You've really got skills and it must've took you forever to make this!

Honestly, books don't get me all sucked into the story like this. Rarely do books give me chills. This one has really gotten the best of me. I'm surprised, clinging to end, and wanting to read more *o* what a cliff hanger you've got there. I honestly just want to read the second one.

I can't wait to just jump into the next one and just. . mehh xD I really hope you keep up the amazing work! Rarely do other artists make me fangirl over something. Amazing job and keep it up! You're inspiring so many people xD

............How do you do this story book thing on DA?  I didn't even know this /was/ a thing on DA till now. 0.o *Feels behind on innovations....*

And that was....freaking amazing!  Oh my gosh, being able to not only use visual tools like what Power Point presentations take for granted, but also motion, music!  Sound effects!  Even a room that can be explored in 3D space!

This just...wow!  Totally blew my mind on what could be done with comic books.  This felt less like a mere comic book, and more like an experiment in visual media!

And I agree with emmav that this totally looks like the project was started with this kind of format in mind, and you and who ever else might have been working with you totally owned it!  I look forward to reading more of the Episodes you have completed and seeing what other surprises there are to be found!

Bless you! It was created just for the digital space, you're right.

And the tool we used will be available in the next few months to ALL deviants for free, so they can make their own stories and images and publish them right here on dA. Very exiting!!! :-)

Thank you so much! And hope you enjoyed the rest of the issues - all seven episodes of book one are here, now. Ready to read!

Very best!

This is wonderful. The transitions are so beautifully done and allow each stage of the storytelling to look like a separate piece of art. Lovely, lovely stuff. And the writing really works with the format - it's obvious that, unlike a comic shoved into digital format, this was written with the format in mind from the get-go.
Very cool ^_^
