Today sees the launch of the latest project from digital publisher Russell Willis (Panel Nine) – a digital graphic novel platform known as Sequential. Available to download from the iTunes Store  Sequential offers readers a one-stop storefront to download works from writers like Alan Moore, David Lloyd, Eddie Campbell Brian Bolland, Hunt Emerson and more. Familliar Panel Nine titles like Dapper John, Kickback and The Certified Hunt Emerson are now available in one place, instead of as standalone apps, which makes for a great way to enjoy all these fantastic titles on your iPad.

Speaking to Paul Gravett at the app’s advanced preview,  Publisher Russell Willis had this to say “I have always been fascinated by graphic novels and sequential art… It seems that I am now in the right place and this is the right time to do something to help promote accessible, intelligent, entertaining and life-enhancing graphic novels and sequential art… “

Sequential uses the same deluxe graphic novel approach that we have seen with previous Panel Nine products, and looks to be another hit and a great way for comics fans to enjoy titles from legendary authors on their iPads.
