Ryan Woodward’s ‘Bottom Of The Ninth’ is probably the worlds first animated graphic novel – probably. The project will be launched exclusively for the iPad & iPhone with a HTC version to follow suit. By animating key panels in the book, the serialized comic comes to life and blurs the line between still & moving image.
The first app, Prologue, will set up the characters and the world of Tao City. Candy Cunningham is an 18 year old girl, born with a phenomenal athletic ability, and a hot head! Her father, Gordy Cunningham is an aged major league player who’s athletic abilities have diminished over the years, but his ability to put on a good clown show always draws a crowd and ticket sales. Throughout the story, Candy faces some serious identity issues. The fame and glory of being a Tao City hero conflict with the true meaning of happiness taught to her by her father.
