Coalition Comix gives users / consumers the ability to partner up with “story master” Mike Carey to create a consumer driven comic book.
Consumer ideas and voting will drive the storyline in a bid to create ground level engagement.
Perspective: It is interesting to see a Myspace site dedicated to consumer generated media, and it is not clear what widgets or sofware will drive the consumer involvment. Nevertheless it is a good play for both Virgin and Myspace … hoping to create a participatory channel for budding comic writers. It will also be interesting to watch niche social networks like Comeeko, which specialises in comic strips in the coming months.
