Niko And The Sword Of Light
When you think of motion comics, the typical look that comes to mind is a standard comic with some very minor movement incorporated to give the frames a sense of life. Well Imaginism studio (Headed up by illustrator Bobby Chiu with collaboration by Kei Acedera, Jim Bryson and Adam Jeffcoat) set out to elevate the medium, creating a fully animated comic book when they Kickstarted their Niko and the Sword of Light project earlier this year. Fast forward to today, and the project is finally released on iOS, with three free chapters available as part of their episodic approach.
The project has been in the works since late 2011 as a completely independent project, with the creators all in agreement that they wanted to create something their own. With some top notch animation and a relatable narrative, this was definitely a labor of love from start to finish. Check it out!
A boy alone in a savage land, fighting the forces of darkness. His people are all but gone, his kingdom destroyed apart from one surviving relic: a magical sword of light that was forged by gods, which will help this lone hero return his land to freedom.
