Bystander Chronicles 12+

A Digital Comic

Jason Ask

Designed for iPad

    • $1.99



A leak. A spark. An explosion. It could happen anywhere. Based on the Kaohsiung City gas explosions, Bystander Chronicles is a full color, interactive graphic novel.

Angela Severson has ran out of her twenties. So when a surprise offer from a sketchy relative shows up, it's the best option she has. But once she's there smaller things just don't seem to matter anymore...

A complete story following unsuspecting characters caught up in an under-reported event from history. This is the paid, full version featuring 194 panels of artwork. To check out the comic first, please try the free preview version. There are no in-app purchases, and no ads.

Comic book artwork looks great on your smartphone or tablet, but the panel by panel zoom featured in direct view apps often use a fraction of the screen. Bystander Chronicles is designed so that each panel takes up as much of the screen as it can without distorting the artwork.

• Word balloons fade in and out for a clean visual look.

• Full version is approximately a 55 page comic.

• A historical fiction story based on the true events of the 2014 Kaohsiung City gas explosions.

• Optimized for size. Full version is under 80MB for those tight on space. Other digital comics range from 200-400MB.
