first_imgThe story follows a paranoid time traveler, but rather than a third-person narrative, the comic is presented as Polaxis’ — the traveler’s — private journal. The project incorporates the fourth wall in a clever way, as Polaxis’ journal is a seemingly normal journal at first, but he hides all of his delusions, paranoia, and conspiracies in a secret augmented reality layer of the book.The augmented reality portion of the comic is easily activated with an iPhone or iPad and the accompanying (free) app. Simply point your device’s camera toward the pages, and the secret information is revealed.The cheapest funding tier is only $20, while the most expensive — $2,000 — will allow you to become the books corporate sponsor. For more details on the story — and even a sample augmented reality image — you can head on over to the Kickstarter page. If you aren’t sure about the extra layer of interactivity, you can download the beta version of Polaxis from iTunes, then test it out on an image displayed on the Kickstarter page. Though one would argue that the world of comics is doing better than ever thanks to big (and lesser) name movie adaptations, actual comics have taken a while to transition to a modern-day medium. Software and services like comiXology have made the medium’s transition to digital smooth and easily accessible, but the medium itself hasn’t changed. A new Kickstarter for an augmented reality comic book aims to changed the ink-and-paper book to something much more modern and interactive.Obviously, the medium of comic books doesn’t need to change — books are still words on paper, TV is still moving images on a living room screen, etc. — but adding something new to an established medium is always welcomed if it goes well and preserves the original integrity and intent. Modern Polaxis, a new augmented reality comic book, hopes to do just that.last_img read more
