Article: Sequential App: Interview with Russell Willis

Posted: May 28, 2013

In this digital age, the comics medium is transforming again and more rapidly than ever before. This week, Sequential, an innovative, game-changing app for iPad, is launched in the UK and Ireland. Its initial line-up of titles is really strong with outstanding graphic novels by the likes of Alan Moore, Eddie Campbell, David Lloyd, Brian Bolland, Hunt Emerson, Gilbert Shelton, Nick Abadzis, Terry Wiley and Darryl Cunningham, with many new titles coming into the store every week. The initial range included Dapper John: In the Days of the Ace Rock and Roll Club by Campbell, the crime thriller Kickback by Lloyd, and the bumper compilation of The Certified Hunt Emerson.

Last month in London, Sequential’s energetic publisher-entrepreneur, Tokyo-based Russell Willis (above), joined me and several of the creators he is publishing to present an exclusive UK preview at Comica Festival at Central Saint Martins College of Arts and Design (you can watch Rich Johnston’s two short YouTube videos from that evening below). Today, I caught up again with Russell back in Japan, now that his much-anticipated Sequential app finally goes on sale via the iTunes Store. Read my interview here…
