Comic books - those participating in the project - will be coming alive (so to speak) with a service called Bubble Zoom. This feature will allow portions of each comic page to zoom and grow when a user's finger moves overhead.

Batman v Superman Review: A Triumph

Batman v Superman Review: A Triumph
