But do people really want this from digital comics?
Publishers have experienced with different other ways to improve user experience yet every time they found them to be either to expensive to maintain or something that wasn’t liked by the general public. Marvel, however, might be on to something. Its first comic book issues with “adaptive audio” show that background sounds are not something cheesy and having adaptive audio can really help get in a certain mood.
The idea behind the feature known as “adaptive audio” is to have a soundtrack play through-out the comic and as the reader flips pages to have the sound-track seamlessly switch to a different one that fits with the page of the comic book the reader is currently viewing. This will persuade even people who speed read their comics to slow down and feel the story of the comic for a bigger amount of time.
