Wacom Announces Free Digital Comics Anthology With Ming Doyle, Meredith Gran, Ulises Farinas And More

Wacom01

Those of you who keep track of the ComicsAlliance staff for shipping purposes may have been wondering what former editor Caleb Goellner has been up to since he left the site earlier this year. As it happens, he's been over at Wacom, and while working on tablets used for digital art is still pretty close to comics -- indeed, many comics artists use the technology to create their comics -- the company is nudging even closer with the announcement of the first-ever Wacom comics anthology.

Built around the theme of "Pressure/Sensitivity" (geddit?), the anthology will feature the talents of cover artist and ComicsAlliance favorite Ulises Farinas with stories by the equally esteemed Meredith Gran, Ming Doyle, Giannis Milanogiannis and more. Even better, the 32-page anthology will be free to download when it's released in January.

Wacom’s Intuos Creative Stylus Substantially Livens Up Lines On The iPad [Review]

intuoscreativestylusreview_3

There are a number of pressure sensitive capacitive stylus options available for the iPad, but their performance is almost always measured against that of far more powerful traditional drawing tablets. That's why when tablet titan Wacom announced that it was at last applying its Z-axis tech to a professional-grade stylus of its own last month -- and as part of its Intuos brand, no less -- iPad users perked up. Could this be the capacitive pen that finally delivers a more Cintiq-like experience on the tablet? Wacom provided ComicsAlliance with a review sample of its new Intuos Creative Stylus, which I took for a spin over the course of week and a half. Click through to read the full review.

With the Cintiq and Intuos lines recently refreshed, Wacom seems to be shooting for tablet trifecta territory by giving its entry-level Bamboo line an overhaul. While Bamboo devices used to serve as pretty basic versions of Wacom's other tablets, the new Bamboo Pad is a 4.21 x 2.63" multitouch trackpad packed with a stylus supporting 512 levels of pressure sensitivity.

It looks like Wacom's not done unveiling new products following the recent Cintiq Companion and Intuos Creative Stylus rollouts. The company's entire Intuos line has just been given a refresh, with the former Bamboo line of entry level graphics tablets getting nixed and regular Intuos tablets getting bumped up to "Intuos Pro" status. Interestingly, amid the reshuffle is the "Intuos Manga," the first device Wacom's ever marketed directly to comic or manga illustrators in name.

Wacom’s Pressure-Sensitive Intuos Creative Stylus Arrives For The iPad In October

wacomintuoscreativestylus

There's quite a few capacitive stylus options on the market for iPad (3, 4 and Mini) users, but Wacom will leverage the pressure-sensitivity of its Intuos brand starting this October with the release of the $99 Intuos Creative Stylus at Wacom's eStore and Best Buy stores. Wacom says it'll sport 2048 levels of pressure by way of Bluetooth 4.0 and the pen's tip, which like most capacitive stylus pens is covered by swappable silicon nibs. So far, the new stylus is confirmed to be optimized for use in Wacom's own free Bamboo app, along with the iOS versions of SketchBook Pro, ArtRage, ProCreate and Psykopaint.

Wacom still hasn't called it a "Cintiq" yet, but the drawing and graphics tablet company has revealed plenty of new details about its mystery mobile tablet. Still set for an August 20 debut, the unnamed HD tablet sporting Wacom's usual pressure-sensetive pen tech will also include two cameras (presumably front and rear-facing options). Additionally, the multi-touch tablet will let users set their own programmable gestures. As far as the tablet's appearance? If these drawings are any indication, it's going to look and work a whole lot like the Cintiq 13HD - right down to its adjustable stand.

It's been months since Wacom took to its social media accounts to tease its mysterious upcoming "on-the-go dream device" -- an HD graphics tablet with a pressure-sensitive pen, multi-touch, and "other valuable features that you haven’t seen in other tablets" -- leaving many in the comics biz yearning for more info before they, say, spend a bunch of money on a Cintiq or Yiynova. Weekly details about the new mobile tablet began rolling out at the end of July on Wacom's European Facebook page in the form of intentionally goofy comics strips of all things, but it wasn't until last week's third installment of "The Innovation Spy" that some juicy tidbits were revealed. Among them? It seems they'll run Windows and Android.
