Author(s) Dittmar, Jakob

English abstract
The paper discusses the use of visual formats and the differences between webcomics and digital comics to describe their inclusion of other media as these have consequences not only on the composition, but also on the reception of comics. In difference to web/online comics and digital comics, the group of download comics is introduced. My aim is to describe the currently existing formats in digital comics and start the discussion of their imprint on dramaturgy, storytelling techniques and traditions, as the formats do of course influence the reading process. Also it has to be asked, whether we are witnessing the establishment of a new literary form which is neither film nor comic nor audio storytelling.
