More and more I’ve been seeing comic creators turning toward YouTube as a way of promoting their comics and teasing upcoming events. Sometimes the commercials are nothing more than a pan or tilt across the comic panel, while others cut the panel up to create a “motion comic.” Then there is Dreamkeepers, an indie publication by David Lillie, that created a fully animated commercial.
I’ll be honest, and say that watching the bit worked, and I ended up going to the website to find out more about the series. And this brings us to the Major Spoilers Question of the Day:
Do video commercials teasing upcoming issues get you more or less interested in the comic being advertised?
