Comics are a unique and classical form of storytelling. The advent of interactive narratives brings the possibility of interaction to the traditional comic books. In this paper we present a non-branching interactive comics system capable of generating dynamic interactive narratives in the format of comic books. The system allows users to interact with certain objects, and then observe the consequences of their actions in the unfolding story. We validate the proposed system with a user study conducted with 18 participants. The results indicate that such systems may indeed provide an attractive form of entertainment.
