Spotlight on Luciano Vecchio
“A big portion of my work is in digital formats,” Luciano told us. “I think the possibilities of in-screen storytelling are endless. There’s a whole new universe of ways to expand our industry beyond the limitations of print, while keeping the essence of what defines a comic to me: giving the reader total control over the reading experience.”
“Gassed” is the first story for the Con Edison: Heroes app and website. The story takes readers through the perils of a mysterious attack by Scarecrow’s fear toxin and Joker’s venom. The Justice League (Superman, Batman, Wonder Women, Flash and Cyborg), and Con Edison crews foil the attack.
“With the Scrollon format I found a tool I had never experienced, as creator or as reader, and it triggered new ideas and solutions. This is a much richer narrative experience than I anticipated.”
Luciano is based in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Born in 1982 and with more than a decade in the industry, his works have been published in the US, UK, France, Spain and Argentina. His recent credits include Beware The Batman (DC Comics), Marvel Infinite: Ultimate Spider-Man and Guardians of the Galaxy (Marvel Comics), and his creator-owned web series Sereno (Tótem Comics).
