FACEBOOK FREE PREVIEW        COMIXOLOGY FREE PREVIEW

From the heart of NYC comes the original digital comic book series POWER PLAY, co-created by Marvel artist Reilly Brown & writer Kurt Christenson.
Presenting the first ComiXology comic to refine what has now become known as Guided View Native Digital Comics, a series that utilizes the technology developed to read comic books on your smartphone, tablet, or web browser, while maximizing the story-telling potential of this new medium.
Power Play is about New Yorkers with superpowers, but rather than fight crime, they don makeshift costumes and form an underground streetgames league. From all across the Five Boroughs, competitors come for a chance to claim the League Cup, for fortune, glory, or for the free year of beer at their neighborhood dive bar. 
Power Play is a love letter to the diversity of New York City with each character satirizing the stereotypes of the locals, with a wink & a nod to their various neighborhoods. The scenes in the comic are MADEinNY, drawn from photo reference of actual New York locations, monuments, bars, etc. so that you can experience the city first hand, building on those of us who know it well, and introducing it to those who’ve yet to visit.
Drawing inspiration from early Spider-Man, Archie Comics, & Sports Manga, Reilly and Kurt have created a new, accessible, fun comic book story that’s a fresh take on superpowers, mixed with the obstacle courses that only the Greatest City in the World can provide!
There is a FREE preview on our Facebook Fanpage as well as on the number one digital comics provider, comixology at:

ComiXology Protip: Add our webstore to your iPad and iPhone desktop!

If you navigate to comixology.com in Safari on your iPhone or iPad, you can save a shortcut to your desktop for greater ease-of-use. Just hit the button that looks like a square with an arrow pointing up, then choose “Add To Home Screen.” Save this new shortcut next to your new comiXology app. We’ve made the store logo orange so you can tell the two apart easier. 

Shopping via the webstore gives you the added benefit of being able to add multiple items to the cart before checkout as well as including content previously unavailable in the iPhone and iPad app. 

After you make a new purchase your comics can be found under the “Recently Purchased” section in the new comiXology app. 

One last thing, we’ve recently optimized the webstore for mobile shopping. So check it out! It’s pretty slick.

Had an awesome time at life drawing with Gowanus Pete and Ice Queen last night.  Eventually we’ll have to get together with the whole Power Play crew!


POWER PLAY is filmed live on the streets (and rooftops) of NYC & Brooklyn.

Coming this Summer: The Kentile Mile!

The treacherous obstacle course that runs from Park Slope to the Gowanus Canal, beneath the F/G trains rumbling above, and then scale the iconic Brooklyn landmark to snag a flag from Gowanus Pete!

***

Catch up on the first event of the Gowanus Games and Mac Washington’s not-so-secret origin in previous issues of POWER PLAY, available on all browsers. smartphones and tablets via ComiXology!

Issue 4 is now available and it’s the best yet!


#GowanusGames are kicking off! 
Join the action with Mac Washington & Gowanus Pete in Brooklyn, held at the Gowanus Ballroom.

GeeksUnleashed.Me Indie Spotlight:

Reilly Brown on Power Play

Geeks Unleashed: What made you chose Digital Comics exclusively over publishing the comic?
Reilly: Honestly, when I first read some digital comics on my computer screen, I wasn’t really into them because most comics distributed digitally are still obviously made with print in mind.  I’d read comics on my computer screen, but the image files weren’t made to fit the screen dimensions, I’d have to scroll back and forth to see the whole thing, and it just seemed like the medium was fighting against it’s own presentation too much to be enjoyable.
It seemed short sighted to me.
Then when I saw how ComiXology was authoring it’s comics to create an excellent reading experience on a handheld device, even though they were working with material that was made for print, it read really well, and I saw that and thought “hmmm, I bet if I made something that was designed to be read digitally this way I could do something REALLY cool…”
Also it’s great to dive into a new evolution of the comics art form that very few other people have jumped on yet.  It gives me a chance to play around and discover things before anyone else has written the rules for me.  It’s a chance to be a pioneer, and chances like that don’t come around very often.
