PULSE No.2 is out now!

The second issue of the new British adventure comic Pulse is now available exclusively from the ROK Comics Ultra app for iPad for just 69p!

The 32 page digital comic continues the four serials that began in issue 1, which is also still available of course. (One of the advantages of digital comics is they never sell out!) So we get the second chapters of Team M.O.B.I.L.E., Dinocorps, Serpent Wars, and Endangered Weapon B. All stories are suitable for all ages.

Although Pulse is one of the closest things we have to a traditional British adventure comic, I feel that the art styles perhaps owe more to television animation. The strips remind me more of the look of The Real Ghostbusters and the X-Men cartoon series than the heavier art styles of The Steel Claw or Johnny Red for example. That's not a criticism. Styles change and comics have to reflect that. Pulse is trying to bring in younger readers so using a lighter style of line, with colour for texture and depth, is something today's kids would be familiar with.

If you own an iPad or iPad Mini and haven't tried Pulse yet, give it a go! People often justifiably can't afford a £3.00 comic but at 69p Pulse is well within the reach of most people. Download it from here:

Looks like an offer I can't refuse.

I actually like the simplicity of the style, though I sure do miss the haunting, heavy linework of the likes of Jesus Blasco.

Good to seek Rok are putting comics back within the pocket money price range of most kids, too.
