Sikoryak's comedic treatment is complete with exaggerated actions and punch lines, and it utilizes the various symbolia
that have come to define Little Lulu and other classic comics, such as the emanata, agitrons, squeans, and hites as defined by Mort Walker.
Her story was one of a handful of initial offerings available in the first issue of Symbolia, a new iPad magazine taking a unique approach to journalism--telling stories exclusively through the use of sequential art.
There's an immersive element to comics that makes it easy for a reader to identify with the subject at hand," said Erin Polgreen, founding editor and publisher of Symbolia.
Symbolia has embraced the Web from the start, publishing stories that mix audio, visual, and interactive elements to create a unique form of storytelling.
So with a $20,000 grant from the International Women's Media Fund, and $14,000 from Chicago-based Robert McCormick Foundation and J-Lab, she debuted Symbolia at last year's SXSW Interactive.
Symbolia is currently available on the iPad and in PDF, and Polgreen plans to publish six issues per year for $2.
