http://techcrunch.com – Madefire, the True Ventures-backed startup building a new kind of digital comics, just announced that it’s partnering with deviantART. Madefire offers a platform for creating comics with additional animation, music, and sound effects — it’d make sense to call the format “motion comics,” except that word is already being used for comics that have been transformed into fully animated content, so the company calls its titles “motion books” instead. Until now, the startup’s motion books have been available on iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch. Co-founder Ben (IT news)
