ACBF – Ein freies digitales Comicformat

Das Advanced Comic Book Format, kurz ACBF dürfte ein weiterer, sehr richtiger Schritt in Sachen Popularität von alternativen Lizenzmodellen sein. Robo Pastierovic hat dieses freie/offene Format eigens für Comics entworfen und unter eine CC-Lizenz (CC-by-NC-SA) gestellt. Details dazu gibt es hier.

“Robo Pastierovic has created Advanced Comic Book Format (ACBF), a free/open format for online comic books. ACBF has a lot of cool features: support for creator metadata; per-panel/page definitions; multiple text-layers for multiple languages; text formatting and style data; auto-indexing and more. The format is CC-BY-SA, and can be found on Launchpad, along with GPL’ed viewers for GNU/Linux and Windows. There’sscreenshots, too. Robo was kind enough to convert the comic adaptation of my storyCraphound, which appeared in my CC-licensed graphic novel Cory Doctorow’s Futuristic Tales of Here and Now — he also translated the comic into Slovak and included the translation in a separate layer.”
