DENVER -- Virtual reality became reality to the general public in the late 1980s.

Its many applications include the medical field, entertainment, sports training, gaming, military and now, for quite possibly the first time ever, virtual reality is going to the funny papers.

More specifically, comic books, all thanks to the creative minds at the Rocky Mountain College of Art & Design.

The app will be called The Rough Draftees. The technology is high tech, but the application is quite simple. You get to be inside a comic book.

“You’re in the comic.  So it envelops you, the building, the environment, the artwork that makes up the comic goes around your peripheral."

The virtual comic book will make it’s debut at the annual Comic Con in Denver.  But be careful, once you go virtual, you may not want to return to reality.
