Sometimes a piece of design comes along that hits you squarely between the eyes not so much because of what it looks like as what it says about where we are as a society today. This week’s wakeup call is this series of trading cards set to be offered at the Comixology booth at San Diego Comic-Con later this month. What’s the big deal? Let’s take a look, shall we? To begin with, Comixology is a cloud-based digital comics distribution service – print most definitely is not their thing. Yet they are using paper trading cards to lure potential customers to their booth. (And just like baseball and non-sport trading cards, there’s at least one card containing a handy checklist to make sure you’ve collected the entire first series.)
