Community & Business Groups

BD Comics Manga Community Group

Motion Comics, Web Comics, Visual novels, Interactive Manga, Webtoon, Turbomedia, Parallax strip, Still motion art ... all digital variants of visual narratives share a common underlying model, which must be clearly expressed before a universal publication format can be designed and released as a Web standard. The mission of the BD Comics Manga Community Group (*) is to study and document, for all kinds of visual narratives expressed digitally, a common conceptual model and associated sets of controlled values. (*) Bande dessinée, Comics, Manga are terms broadly used for sequential art in Europe, USA and Asia; this underlies the global scope of the study.

Note: Community Groups are proposed and run by the community. Although W3C hosts these conversations, the groups do not necessarily represent the views of the W3C Membership or staff.

In order to join the group, you will need a W3C account. Please note, however, that W3C Membership is not required to join a Community Group.

This is a community initiative. This group was originally proposed on 2018-10-26 by Laurent Le Meur. The following people supported its creation: Laurent Le Meur, Hadrien Gardeur, Ivan Herman, Bryan Mutai, Samuel Petit. W3C’s hosting of this group does not imply endorsement of the activities.

The group must now choose a chair. Read more about how to get started in a new group and good practice for running a group.

We invite you to share news of this new group in social media and other channels.
