I became sick of not being able to read the story on my Nexus7, so I’ve started modifying the engine to show the story at the right size for the browser. On an iPad it was never a problem, but the N7’s a bit skinnier.

Theres a test page up with a few pages of story http://theblackgates.com/test.html while its working 90% on the N7 now I’d be keen to know how it works on say the Galaxy Note II, S4, 920 etc, or other tablets. Comments appreciated. Will finalise and push live after the more important artwork push.



2 more down, roughly six more to go making it a proper chapter release. I try and keep a release to approx 8 pages, making the interlude a little bonus.

Looking back at DEATH NOTE, that story had a dreamlike quality whereas EXPLODER is more about movement, I’ve been thinking about the role of such pages with regards to Dane; not sure.


Untitled-2‘ve updated the CRIME WEBCOMIC DIRECTORY listings to include filtering, may be bugs and not fully tested but provides an extra tool to get to the right content as a reader.



I feel the need to post an update to reassure that there is work in progress.

There are plenty of pages to be added to complete exploder, but after one more page of art I’ll look to release the next few pages.


Edit – colouring, text and export to come.
