I am building a huge, functional glass comic book that will showcase just how amazing comics and graphic stories are...a comic you can practically step into...a comic that will make fans of graphic story proud, and hopefully make naysayers re-evaluate their position. This glass comic will have twelve 4 ft. x 3 ft. pages including the front and back covers. The pages will be quarter inch glass, etched in ultra-fine detail and lit with LED strips in various ways to create effects never before seen in a comic book. The lighting will be ensconced in frames that hold two pages together with a divider. The pages will hinge on a free standing base that acts as the comic's binding. All electricity will run from its housing inside the stand, under the hinges and into the frames. The glass comic will tell the inaugural story of Comangra City...a city where COmics, MANga and GRAphic novels characters, along with the rest of the world's comic genres and character styles live and interact.
