Circuits, Cycles, Configurations: an Interaction Model of Web Comics

In November 2020, Francesca Benatti and Alessio Antonini from the UK team of READ-IT, with Sam Brooker of the Richmond University of London, presented a new paper on Webcomics at the International Conference on Interactive Digital Storytelling (ICIDS2020). The paper “Circuits, Cycles, Configurations: an Interaction Model of Web Comics” discusses the role of non-diegetic interactions in the lifecycle of webcomics and extends the a framework based on a previous work, “Mediation as Calibration: A Framework for Evaluating the Author/Reader Relation”, to the technological infrastructures of distribution and feedback as an abstraction of the web ecosystem of tools and platform supporting webcomics.
