Madefire brings comic books to Gear VR

The Gear VR lets you tap into a wide variety of virtual reality experiences and now you can add comic books to that list. You may have wanted to immerse yourself in a comic book before but that wasn’t exactly possible, Madefire’s new app makes that possible on the Gear VR. The app enables users to read its Motion Books in virtual reality. Pages will fill the entire view and creators are able to add 3D layers to individual panels.

Only a few sample comics are available to experience in virtual reality initially, titles include Madefire’s own Mono: The Old Curiosity Shop and Injustice: Year One. Madefire has said that it’s looking to bring some level of virtual reality support to its entire library of more than 10,000 titles by the holiday season. Many people already use mobile devices to read comic books but virtual reality definitely adds a whole new dimension to the experience. Madefire’s comic book app is now available for download on the Gear VR via the Oculus Store.
