How can we use AR in combination with Comic Artwork to shift attention from the page to the screen and back? The project combines HCI with the ninth art: comics. It applies design criteria from comic scholars and practitioners such as Will Eisner and Scott McCloud to develop effective AR designs for hybrid comic pieces. We will present a prototype sample of this project at work.
