Gathering in the Fold

CFP Week as Oz and Ends ends with a CFFC--a Call for Foldy Comics.

Late last month I wrote about a single-sheet form of comics developed independently by Kenan Rubenstein and Jon Chad. Each surface (and thus potentially each panel) is twice as large as the one before.

Kenan has now launched a website devoted to this form at FoldyComics. I believe he's using "foldies" as the generic term while titling his own series of semi-autobiographical examples as "oubliettes."

And he's invited other comics creators to send in their examples. So far there are some from Reid Psaltis, including "The Naturalist," which takes advantage of the expanding form. It's virtually inspiring.
