Firstly – a very Happy New Year from all of us at Madefire!

Huge thanks to all of our readers, supporters, and everybody else that has made this first year possible. We believed that there was a new medium to be had, and a great reading experience to be pioneered – and we somehow made it happen! It’s not been easy. There have been long hard nights, faltering footsteps, the odd stumble even. There have been moments of joy and terror. We had no idea how the public would perceive us until we had gingerly faced into the future, and pitched our beloved stories out into the void. So again – thank you for embracing Madefire. Without you we couldn’t exist.

And we have a lot to celebrate!

Apple’s App store crowned us a ‘hidden-gem’ in their best of 2012.

Fast Company listed MONO as one of the ’10 coolest original digital comics of 2012’  (http://www.fastcocreate.com/1682082/the-10-coolest-original-digital-comics-of-2012#6) describing it as ‘a ripping spy/adventure yarn enhanced with intriguing motion effects.’

Finally, Pipedream Comics announced ‘Captain Stone is Missing…’ as the ’best digital comic of 2012’. (http://pipedreamcomics.co.uk/?p=985) calling it ‘…a cutting edge tour de force of digital comics. Showcasing the Madefire app’s motion comics technology to its utmost, Captain Stonemerges a multitude of art styles with stunning interactive elements and physical effects with a mean and moody soundtrack’ that ‘has become one of the most sophisticated digital titles around.’

Wishing you all the very best, and here’s to an amazing 2013!
