“Thunderpaw”, An Animated Comic By Jen Lee

Jen Lee is doing something very special with her newly launched on-line comic Thunderpaw: In the Ashes of Fire Mountain. The comic, which is updated weekly, makes extensive use of animated GIFs, which in itself is not a new idea. However, the way that Lee incorporates animation into her narrative is as original as I’ve seen. She’s just getting started and I can’t wait to see where she takes the idea.

    AW DANG. Thank you so much Amid for making a post about Thunderpaw! My head is spinning, I consider myself an amateur animator/hobbyist at best so it’s amazing to me that my .gif comic is up here. Thank you so so much for such a nice compliment too. AHH

  • Aw man, I remember seein’ Jen’s art ages ago, I’m pumped to see her making more comics!

    Nice one, Jen!

  • Good work Jen and thanks for hunting this out Amid for all of us to enjoy.

  • This is the coolest! There should be x-mas wrap of this comic so I can just use it as wall-paper! Animated gif wallpaper from the future!
