As a publisher of online and print comics, PUG Fiction is less interested in superhero power fantasies or genre fiction than in exploring the storytelling possibilities of the medium. PUG’s inaugural story is “Midnight Blue,” a study in violence in which a high school prom becomes the setting for a hostage situation and the proving ground for a boy faced with an impossible decision. Illustrated in a quirky, not quite realistic style, the story has been tailored to function as both a print comic and as one example of the digital “infinite canvas” currently being explored by comics artists: the traditional comics layout is turned on its head as panels rearrange themselves at the click of a mouse. Freed from the constraints of the printed page, the story flows with ease and becomes something distinct and new, what PUG calls a “digicomic.”
