How do we tell true stories?

The Fox Sisters is an annotated web comic that explores new techniques for telling true stories dramatically without discarding important context.

While every true story inhabits a detailed and complicated world, a well-told story conforms to a simple arc. In the Fox Sisters, hyperlinked margin notes provide readers with the option to chase any curious detail down a path of animations, text, and comics . Each step which takes them further from the Foxes, further illuminates 19th century America. In the future, this storytelling form could contain hundreds of linked multimedia stories, all sharing a rich, interconnected world.

The Fox Sisters is an ongoing project.
