Avengers: Iron Man – MKVII Review

by on April 30, 2012

Graphic novels have had something of resurgence with the rise of tablets. No longer do fair-weather comic-book readers have to venture to their nearest store to pick up the latest Marvel addition, their secret can be kept safe with the fact you can just download through an app.

Apart from some snazzy panel zooming, though, they don’t offer much more than what you get in paper for. Iron Man MKVII is a comic that’s trying to change this. It’s a freebie, so don’t expect a massive amount of story here. But what Iron MKVII does is plug the gap between the second Iron Man film and the Avengers movie. It basically tells the story of Iron Man’s changing suits and, well, that’s pretty much it.

But it is done in a different and more interactive way. For instance, the comic is narrated and each panel has moving bits – like a pop-up book for the digital world.

To make these things move you just tap on the objects on the screen and they shake or make some sort of noise. It’s not perfect – sometimes it is difficult to get to the next panel because you prod the screen and it awakes one of the objects.

The narration is also a little clunky – sounding more like an RPG than a comic book, but the idea of a moving comic is great.
