In the digital era, the comics medium is transported from print to computer screen. Current digital comics (web comics or online comics) are confined to computer screen and use the affordances of digital medium in a limited way. GPS Comics: Seeing thru Walls is a GPS based comics story that expands the comic canvas and explores the idea of location-based comics. In Seeing thru Walls, in order to receive the meaning in a comic frame the player must experience a sensory detail (a smell, sound, breeze or an object) in her surroundings in the physical world. The concept of location-based comics is an unexplored idea and gives artists new meaning making strategies.
