Cable network USA and DC Comics debuted Chapter 1 of its “Burn Notice” interactive graphic novel, “A New Day,” alongside the show’s Season 5 premiere on Thursday. To date, “A New Day” has scored more than 100,000 page views, according to the network.
“Working with innovative partners, we’ve created a dynamic and fun interactive comic book that gives our fans a level of engagement that they’ve never had before,” said USA’s VP of Digital Jesse Redniss. “We are pushing the technology boundaries to enhance the user experience beyond the one-hour telecast and expanding the story arc into new arenas.”
Written by show writers Ryan Johnson and Peter Lalayanis with art by Tony Shasteen, the comic has some mildly interactive features like clickable content and so on. It’s available for desktop, iOS, and Android.
