Marvel Digital Media SVP Pete Phillips added that Marvel is bringing in a new group of readers which is exciting for him and the company. "Print and digital, that's the Holy Grail for us," said the executive as the new 3D app was displayed at the expo. Discussing how fast technology is changing, Editor-in-Chief Alonso said that all of the things that Marvel displayed at SXSW that drew oohs and aahs from the crowd will be laughed at and seen as corny in the next year or two. To Alonso, that is a good thing. "The future," said the executive, "is limitless."
