Nobrow is one of my favourite comics (and assorted art ephemera) labels. It brings together artists including names familiar to Digital Arts readers such as Ben Newman, Luke Pearson and Mcbess.
The label's focus has been on beautifully designed print publications, but it's now venturing into digital comics with the release of the Nobrow Comics App for iPad.
The free app lets you buy comics – and for a limited time you can get four classic (ie older) works for free: Ben Newman's Ouroboros, Luke Pearson's Hildafolk (below), Jon McNaught's Birchfield Close and the first Artist’s Mini Bundle.
Unlike the print comics, the app lets you peek behind the finished comic to see linework and sketches for some of the titles (below).
“Our aim is to continue to allow print to sing as print, but alongside that to explore the fantastic things that a screen can offer you," says Alex Spiro, Nobrow's co-founder and creative director. "Nobrow’s digital products won’t replace what we already love doing, and will continue to do for many years to come, they are merely answers to the question: How can I get as much pleasure from a digital experience as I do from reading a beautifully printed Nobrow book?”
