When was the last time a comic surprised you? Really
Neat trick, hunh?
This is one of those interesting cases where the insertion of motion (or the illusion of it by hijacking the scrollbar) doesn't automatically tear at the fabric of the medium. It still feels
like comics, because that static juxtaposition is maintained (a bit like comics that use looped motion, one of which I wrote about on my site last year: http://scottmccloud.com/2010/08/24/why-it-works/
Hope others will give it a try. Adding the ingredient of reader presence
to the mix could open up a lot of interesting possibilities, especially for genres like horror which thrive on keeping the reader at least partially in the dark.
