Hi. Mark Waid here. As promised if you were paying attention at WonderCon today during my spotlight panel, [urlhttp://markwaid.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/03/Luther-Final.pdf]here’s a free PDF download
[/url] of a short digital-comics story I did as proof-of-concept with the talented artist Jeremy Rock. It’s a little zombie story called “Luther”, and it’s a sample of the approach I’m taking to my long-promised–and now imminent–series of Digital Comics.
Download it for free. Open it in whatever program you use to read PDF files. A simple right-click or page-tap takes you through, screen by screen, dead simple. For best results, view it full-screen, landscape format, so each image reads as a separate “page.” And enjoy. Free from Jeremy and me to you.
If you like it, we could use your assistance. Send the link to your friends. In fact, I encourage you to share “Luther” with as many people as you like. Help us spread the word. Help us show off what we think Digital Comics can be. Help point the audience here. It’d be much appreciated.
Then come back here April 2 to see what else I have in mind for the future of webcomics and find out how you can participate.

Just finished this. Not a bad little story. Meant to be read on a tablet, but it works on the computer as well when you go page by page.
It's short, too, so it won't take you long to go through it. Worth the 5 minutes.
Mark Waid is one of the current king of cape books. He's got some great work out there.
One of his most recognized works was the 4 issue Elseworlds epic Kingdom Come, with the magnificent artist Alex Ross. Kingdom Come was the book that essentially start get me back into comics as a whole. He also wrote the sequel to is, The Kingdom, Deadpool: Sins of the Past, the preludes to both 90 crossovers Age of Apocalypse and Onslaught, Captain America: Sentinel of Liberty, several issues of post BND Spider-Man (including Gauntlet and Origin of Species), the current run of Daredevil (and receiving the utmost praise for it), created the well received sister books Irredeemable and Incorruptible, and several JLA, Justice League, Green Lantern, Superman, Batman and Flash books.
The man is considered part of the upper echelon of comic writers today.
