Motion Comics


About:
    A motion comic is a form of comics combining elements of print comic books and animation, and need any Multimedia player such as mp4 player (Mpeg4-ASP + AAC) most devices/phones play .mp4 natively.

History
    The earliest examples of motion comics are found in independent creations such as Broken Saints.

    In 2005, Lions Gate released an animated version of the Saw: Rebirth comic, one of the first examples of an animated comic created to tie into a film franchise. The first major motion comics released, which is also the first use of the term "motion comic," were released by Warner Bros., the owner of DC Comics to coincide with the film premieres of The Dark Knight and Watchmen, releasing an adaption of Batman: Mad Love and Watchmen: Motion Comics, adapting the comic book of the same name.

    Marvel Comics have also begun producing motion comics, beginning with an adaptation of Joss Whedon and John Cassaday's Astonishing X-Men and a Spider-Woman series by Brian Michael Bendis and Alex Maleev produced simultaneously in print comic and motion comic formats. They have also recently announced the addition of Extremis.

    Examples from other companies include Peanuts Motion Comics, the Dead Space prequel comics and the "Lucy" element of the ABC News documentary Earth 2100.

    A database of motion comics can be found online at Digital Motion Comics

Illustrated Films
    A sibling format to motion comics called illustrated films was developed by transmedia studio HALO 8 Entertainment with their Godkiller, which was produced at the same time as (but separately from) the Watchmen motion comic. As opposed to repurposing an existing comic book, Halo-8 created new sequential art that was designed from its inception to be transmedia art for both a comic book and an illustrated film. Godkiller creator Matt Pizzolo told Bloody Disgusting "Godkiller was just a slower production than Watchmen because we had to create 200 pages of art and story from the ground up first, rather than starting with one of the greatest comic books ever made as source material. Plus we had a dozen voice performers instead of just one."

    Although aesthetically similar to motion comics, Pizzolo identifies illustrated film influences as including Liquid Television, the MTV cartoon adaptation of The Maxx, the Berserk anime series, Chris Marker's La jetée, the motion comic Broken Saints, and the experimental cinema of Ralph Bakshi.

    According to Comics Alliance, Pizzolo stated "the difference between an illustrated film and a motion comic is kind of the difference between a movie that was shot in 3D versus a movie that was shot in 2D but got a 3D post-conversion. We're not repurposing an existing comic book here, we're building something unique from scratch."

    Godkiller also diverged from motion comics with voice performances by a "genre-star-studded ensemble" (according to Fangoria [9]) featuring Lance Henriksen (Aliens), Bill Moseley (The Devil's Rejects), Danielle Harris (Halloween franchise), Nicki Clyne (Battlestar Galactica), Lydia Lunch, Justin Pierre (singer Motion City Soundtrack), and Davey Havok (singer AFI).

    The 75-minute Godkiller feature was released theatrically in 11 cities before it was distributed on DVD and cable VOD.

    Upcoming illustrated films from Halo-8 include Ben Templesmith's original project Black Sky and an adaptation of Tim Seeley's Hack/Slash.

Reception
    Reception to motion comics has been mixed.

    NewTeeVee commented,
      "This first generation [of motion comics] is admittedly crude, but there is enough 'motion' in these motion comics to keep the viewer’s attention, and so far the music and voice acting have been great. Plus, the level of experimentation and sophistication will grow as more are produced."

    Comics Worth Reading asked,
      "When you add camera tricks and a soundtrack to a comic, is it still a comic? Or just a poor excuse for a cartoon, done on the cheap? Are they reaching a new audience, attracted by a new format in more modern sales outlets (that come to them)? Will those hypothetical new readers eventually wind up buying traditional-format comics? Could this be just another way to try and make more money from the same, previously existing content?"

    Artist John Cassaday described his experience with the motion comic adaptation of Astonishing X-Men, saying:
      "I'd seen some motion comic animation, and the quality varied. When Marvel approached me, I was initially hesitant, but after looking at some test footage and hearing how committed they were, I knew what direction they were wanting to go."

    Chris Cummins in Comics, Daily Lists says:
      The problem with motion comics is that they are by their very nature a lesser product. Not possessing the nuances of a comic or the visual flair of a cartoon, these things are weird creatures traveling through the night in search of their own identity. That may sound a bit grandiose, but think about it. Motion comics are designed for people who are too lazy to read a graphic novel. Yet they are also crafted in such a fashion that their inferior animation is their primary selling point (there's a thesis in here somehow about how the seeming half-assedness of motion comics is a reflection upon contemporary America's overwhelming ability to settle for mediocrity, yet I'm far too lazy to write it). Motion Comics have been called the Cliff's Notes of the comics industry, and that sounds like a fair assessment. Yet it seems that they are also, to make a timely reference, the Rodney Dangerfield of fandom. Just because you probably should read a graphic novel as opposed to watching one brought to life with the least amount of effort doesn't mean that there aren't some motion comics that are worth your time. Come to think of it, some of these are actually quite exceptional. You see, as long as you view motion comics as a companion to their source material instead of a replacement, they offer up a lot of enjoyment. So I'm going to stop poo-pooing them and begin giving them the respect they deserve. Here then is a look at the 10 best motion comics released. Thus far anyways.
          10. Iron Man: Extremis
          09. The Walking Dead
          08. Batgirl: Year One
          07. Superman: Red Son
          06. Spider-Woman: Agent of S.W.O.R.D.
          05. Batman: Black and White
          04. Astonishing X-Men: Gifted
          03. Watchmen
          02. Peanuts
          01. Axe Cop

    One of the bigger struggles the wider audience has had with receiving motion comics is that a select few of them appear to be half hearted attempts at a cartoon with many viewers complaining about lip movement and body movement being too overdone (but not executed well enough) for the work to be acceptable as a 'comic'. The level of motion varies greatly from title to title with some sticking closer to traditional comic styles but using motion and sound to enhance the story telling, whilst others have a greater emphasis on the motion, music, sound and animation.

Batgirl Year One by DC Comics

Resolution: 640*348
Video format: AVI. 70 minutes.
Overview: Batgirl: Year One is a 9-issue mini-series published during 2003. Written by Scott Beatty and Chuck Dixon, the series depicts Barbara Gordon's origin as Batgirl.

    #8 - Seasoned Crime-Fighter, 55 MB
    #9 - Ashes & Blood, 79 MB

      Available on a DVD with the equally worthwhile The Batman Adventures: Mad Love, Batgirl: Year One chronicles the early days of the future tragedy victim as she irritates/befriends Batman, flirts with Robin, battles Killer Moth (whom I can't take even remotely seriously after watching The Monarch on The Venture Bros.) and hides her secret identity from her pop. The true strength here is some fantastic voiceover work that reflects the enthusiasm and self-doubt of Batgirl that was the heart of Scott Beatty and Chuck Dixon's comic. In the story, Barbara Gordon/Batgirl is a young woman trying to carve out her own niche in life while being constantly overshadowed by the achievements of her police commissioner father and a certain bat-obsessed vigilante. Kate Higgins' portrayal of the character is layered with courage, vulnerability and self-awareness. Her performance seems effortless, and it allows viewers to connect with Batgirl's plight on an emotional level. While punctuated by brief moments that foreshadow Barbara's unfortunate future -- most notably a comment by Doctor Fate and a cameo by The Joker in the Batcave training area wearing his outfit from The Killing Joke -- Batgirl: Year One is mainly a joyful valentine to DC's most underrated heroine.

Astonishing X-Men: Gifted by Marvel Comics
Requirement: Any Multimedia Player
File Size: 762 MB.
Resolution: 720*480
Video format: AVI. 90 minutes
Overview: Joss Whedon and John Cassaday's Eisner award-winning take on Marvel's mightiest mutants comes to life with the help of comics legend Neal Adams in the Astonishing X-Men motion comic, adapting the acclaimed Gifted storyline!

    Gabriele Dell'Otto penciler, inker, colorist, cover
    Sean Ryan, Mike Marts, Cory Sedlmeier, Jeff Youngquist, Jennifer Grunwald, Stephanie Moore editor
    Published by Marvel Comics. 2004.

    Cyclops and Emma Frost re-form the X-Men with the express purpose of 'astonishing' the world. But when breaking news regarding the mutant gene unexpectedly hits the airwaves, will it derail their new plans before they even get started? As demand for the 'mutant cure' reaches near-riot levels, the X-Men go head-to-head with the enigmatic Ord, with an unexpected ally - and some unexpected adversaries -- tipping the scales!

      Are you a Joss Whedon fan who feels burned that his Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 8 motion comic didn't make the cut? Fear not, because this motion comic by the Firefly auteur is so good it's, well, astonishing. Ugh. Sorry. Anyways, the story involves a new a roster of X-Men led by Cyclops (who seems more interested in schtupping girlfriend/team member Emma Frost than taking command) as they deal with the duel threats of a possible mutant cure and a new alien enemy who, of course, has a secret agenda of his own. As you would probably like to forget, the mutant cure plot thread also made an appearance in X-Men: The Last Stand. However I'm pleased to report that it's handled much better here. Peppered throughout six brisk-moving episodes is the sly wit that has won Whedon his legion of faithful followers. But the humor on display -- and there's a lot of it -- never overshadows the drama. A highlight of the series is a fight between Wolverine and Beast, who is seriously considering taking the cure to finally rid himself of his ever-changing mutation. The scene transforms from a fierce battle to a discussion of the self vs. the greater good that is so riveting to witness that the crude animation is the furthest thing from your mind. It's story that counts here above all. Whedon crams a lot of it into a brief running time and still manages to resolve each character arc in a satisfying manner. Even Lockheed gets a moment to shine here, and he's partially responsible for the series' best joke. Exactly why does Kitty love him so much? Hmm.

    Published by DC Comic, 1996.

    Batman Black and White refers both to a four-issue comic book limited series published in 1996 by DC Comics, and three collections of 8-page black-and-white Batman stories, comprising the limited series and backup features from the Batman: Gotham Knights comic.

      Batman - Black & White 101 Here Be Monsters
      Batman - Black & White 102 Broken Nose
      Batman - Black & White 103 Two of a Kind
      Batman - Black & White 105 The Black and White Bandit
      Batman - Black & White 106 Punchline
      Batman - Black & White 107 Good Evening, Midnight
      Batman - Black & White 108 Hide and Seek
      Batman - Black & White 109 Night After Night
      Batman - Black & White 110 Perpetual Mourning
      Batman - Black & White 201 I'll Be Watching & The Call
      Batman - Black & White 202 Monsters in the Closet & A Game of Bat and Rat
      Batman - Black & White 203 Hands & Sunrise
      Batman - Black & White 204 In Dreams & Heroes
      Batman - Black & White 205 Legend & Blackout

      Based on the popular anthology, this is the longest running motion comic to date. There are 20 episodes to choose from, but I'd recommend the above "Case Study" (written by Paul Dini and illustrated by Alex Ross) or "Here Be Monsters" (think David Goodis by way of Darwyn Cooke) as your starting points. As those names indicate, the diversity and amount of talent on display here is unparalleled in comparison to other motion comics. Because these stories are often moody and noirish character studies, I'd recommend alternating back and forth between episodes of Batman: Black and White and the comedic Batman: The Brave and the Bold if you truly want to immerse yourself in the Dark Knight's schizophrenic mindset.

    Spartacus: Blood and Sand is a very violent, graphic television show. The characters are very interesting and compelling and the story line is very action oriented. If you don't enjoy graphic violence, language, or strong content, then I wouldn't recommend it. That being said, this motion comic (I emphasis this because some people are disappointed it's not Dora the Explorer type animation or content when clearly it says MOTION COMIC and BLOOD and SAND) is an interesting twist on the show. In the show, there are characters we know little about except they die. The comic gives a concise, glimpse into their lives before the arena. Like a poem is to a narrative, so is a comic to a movie. I loved it and if you liked the show, it would probably make this more enjoyable. By Loree Smith on http://www.hulu.com

Peanuts is a syndicated daily and Sunday American comic strip written and illustrated by Charles M. Schulz, which ran from October 2, 1950, to February 13, 2000 (the day after Schulz's death), continuing in reruns afterward. The strip is considered to be one of the most popular and influential in the history of the medium, with 17,897 strips published in all, making it "arguably the longest story ever told by one human being", according to Professor Robert Thompson of Syracuse University. At its peak, Peanuts ran in over 2,600 newspapers, with a readership of 355 million in 75 countries, and was translated into 21 languages. It helped to cement the four-panel gag strip as the standard in the United States, and together with its merchandise earned Schulz more than $1 billion. Reprints of the strip are still syndicated and run in many newspapers.

Peanuts achieved considerable success for its television specials, several of which, including A Charlie Brown Christmas and It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown won or were nominated for Emmy Awards. The holiday specials remain quite popular and are currently broadcast on ABC in the United States during the corresponding season. The property is also a landmark in theatre with the stage musical You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown being an extremely successful and often-performed production.

It has been described as "the most shining example of the American success story in the comic strip field", ironically based on the theme of "the great American unsuccess story", since the main character, Charlie Brown, is meek, nervous and lacks self-confidence, being unable to fly a kite, win a baseball game or kick a football.

THE WALKING DEAD by Juice Films
Requirement: Any Multimedia Player
File Size: 110MB
Resolution: 848 * 480
Video format: AVI, 8 min
Overview: Announced today -- just in time for San Diego Comic-Con -- AMC is offering the first ever Walking Dead motion comic, exclusively on their website, AMCTV.com. While those of you who have read the epic horror series will recognize it as the first 13 pages of the original book, for fans wondering what all the hubbub is all about, it's a perfect introduction. The motion comic was produced by Jake Strider Hughes -- who also produced DC's Watchmen motion comic -- and features the vocal talents of Futurama's Phil Lamarr.

Image

Fresh off their success with the Watchmen Motion Comic, Juice Films is at it again with another genre offering. The Walking Dead Motion Comic has been commissioned by AMC to tie into the series and the first part is now online. It’s based on the first issue of the Days Gone Bye trade paperback (you know, the one with the best art), the start of the series. It’s a nice little primer for the show, and you can watch the whole episode in the player below.

Tony Moore’s art looks really great here- they did a fantastic job of making it come alive. Ironically enough, I suppose.

Drawn by Tony Moore
Animated by Juice Films
Voice by Phil LaMarr.

It’s nice to see that they’ve taken so much time to establish main character Rick Grimes- hopefully something that continues in the tv series. Check AMC’s site for much much more on the show, including a video of creator Robert Kirkman touring the set.

Batman Adventures: Mad Love by DC Comics
Requirement: Any Multimedia Player
File Size: 287 MB.
Resolution: 640*368
Video format: AVI. 27 minutes
Overview: Exploring the animated origin of Harley Quinn. In this fantastic issue created for the animated series the reader finds out for the first time Harley Quinn's disturbing transformation from Dr. Harleen Quinzel the clinical psychiatrist to crazy clown girl.
This is the turning point in Harley's life. She falls madly in love for a psychopathic clown and lives a life that could have come straight from an episode of loony tunes.
Harley also greets the Joker with a nice Batty surprise, but he's not too thrilled. He doesn't like to think of Harley being better then him at the game then him.
The relationship between the Clown Prince and the Harlequin is really nicely illustrated in this amazing comic book.
This story was so great it even went on to be part of the animated series, with only minor changes.

      The Batman Adventures - Mad Love 02 Psycho Therapy & In Like Quinn & The Grand Deception
      The Batman Adventures - Mad Love 03 A Fish Tale & Breaking Up Is Hard to Do

    First of all, I think that the comic book has better graphics than the cartoon. This is the only bad thing of Mad Love, to me. Mad Love contains the most famous Joker's lines, like 'If you have to explain a joke, there is no joke!'. Well, young Doc. Harleen Quinzel tries to understand the twisted mind of the Joker. But he's crazy, not stupid. So, he invents his past (Joker actually doesn't really remember how he turned into a white grinning guy)and tells Harleen a sad story: his father used to beat him up, and there was only one time he ever saw his dad happy; when he took him to the circus. The kid tried to make his father laugh doing some clownish gags, but all he received was a broken nose. Harley begins to see him as a kind of misunderstood angel, 'a lost, injured child trying to make the world laugh at his antics'. Then,the Joker escapes from Arkham, only for a little, because Batman immediatley captures him. When Harleen sees his angel barely conscient, bleeding before her eyes, she runs to take the Joker in her arms. And then, a snap in her mind. She buys a jester costume and prepares herself. In a few hours, Harley Quinn is ready to help her Puddin'. But after the breakout, the Joker is violent and unkind to her. Harley desperately tries to kill Batman to 'prove Mistah J she can do one of his plans'. But when he Puddin' discovers what she was doing, he sets Batman free and push her out of the window. Only the Joker has the honor of killing the Bat. Yes, out of the window. Come on, I don't have to tell you the end, Batman wins, but Mr. J pushed his Harley OUT OF A WINDOW. He's the Joker after all. I think Mad Love is the more explicit example of how love makes you do CRAZY things, like loving the Joker, or still loving him after he broke every possible bone in your body.

    -Face it Harl, this stinks. Yer a certified nutso wanted in twelve states and hopelessly in love with a psychopathic clown!

Iron Man: Extremis by Marvel Comics
Requirement: Any Multimedia Player
File Size: 743 MB
Resolution: 1280*718
Video format: AVI, MP4. 65 minutes
Overview: It’s the beginning of a new era for Iron Man as renowned scribe Warren Ellis joins forces with artist Adi Granov to redefine the armored Avenger’s world for the 21st century – a landscape of terrifying new technologies that threaten to overwhelm fragile mankind! What is Extremis, who has unleashed it, and what does its emergence portend for the world?

    Dan Buckley other
    Adi Granov artist, penciler, inker, colorist, cover
    Joe Quesada, Andy Schmidt, Molly Lazer, Nicole Wiley editor
    Published by Marvel Comics. 2005-2006

      Warren Ellis is most famous to regular Topless Robot readers as the man who made "tender, passionate love to our childhoods" (with his enormous dick, natch) through his work on G.I. Joe: Resolute. He merits inclusion on today's Daily List for his six-issue Extremis story arc in The Invincible Iron Man, which was adapted for the motion comic medium last year. The story has an ennui-stricken Tony Stark reuniting with an old colleague who was working with an experimental serum called Extremis that got into the wrong hands. Obviously, things go bad and Stark experiences a substantial amount of self-doubt before saving the day. I'm deliberately simplifying the story a bit here so that you can experience its surprises for yourself, but the best bits include a compelling interview in which Stark is challenged by a Michael Moore-styled documentary filmmaker and a new take on Iron Man's origin that directly influenced the one featured in his big screen debut (which also was heavily inspired by Adi Granov's visual take on the character as is featured here). Another connection to the Iron Man feature film is how the portrayal of the Sal Kennedy character -- a Zen-spouting Dude who disapproves of Stark's career choices -- seems heavily influenced by Jeff Bridges. Sadly, the scene Kennedy appears in is a bit heavy-handed and pretentious, so when he appears you can feel free to schedule a snack/bathroom break.

    Missiles, Repulsors And Uni-Beams. Oh My! Reviewed by CM_Cameron on May 13, 2011.
      SO WHAT HAD HAPPENED WAS...
        It's easy to see where the 2008 Iron Man movie got a lot of it's inspiration from after reading this collection of issues. Everything from the updated origin story, to Stark being questioned about the morality of his business, all the way to Iron Man hitting a supervillian holding a car over his head with a uni-beam. The popular superhero movie owes much of its plot to Extremis. Fortunately, the scenes that inspired those elements of the film are just as exciting and entertaining on the page as they are on the screen. Not to mention everything in the story that it can wholly call its own. Extremis is a great ride through and through.

        The story centers around a Super Soldier-like serum developed in top secret (as things of this nature usually are) that rewires the body into a more efficient machine. When the serum is injected into Mallen, things get ugly as he starts carving a path through highly populated areas on his way to Washington D.C. With the help of the very doctor who created the serum, Iron Man sets out to stop the crazed maniac. Unfortunately, things don't go well for Stark in round one, which leads him to take drastic measures in order to take on Mallen.

        That can be said to be the basics of the story. It's a simple enough approach that leaves plenty of room for expansion and side bits, which Warren Ellis takes great advantage of. A large majority of the first portion of the story is spent with Tony Stark, not Iron Man, as we get insights into the nature of his business and how it affects him as a person. A few cliches are used to illustrate that, such as the old standby: character can't look at himself in the mirror as it would mean confronting who they really are. Stuff like that. But, cliche though it may be, it's still executed well and I never noticed the nature of the tropes used in this book until I stopped to think about it, so it shouldn't prove to be a detriment to the enjoyment of casual readers or those just looking for a good story.

        The only major downside to the story is that while there is a focus on Tony as a character, much of this story's purpose seems to be just to upgrade Iron Man. I get the feeling that someone thought Iron Man wasn't awesome enough and thus, this story was born. I don't so much have a problem with character upgrades, but it takes a lot of the excitement this story could have had away. For example, towards the middle of the book, Iron Man and Mallen fight for the first time. Mallen is clearly the superior combatant, but Stark presses on anyway, fighting through injury after injury in what is easily the best scene in the entire book. It's a wonderfully tense and dramatic fight scene with plenty of great back-n-forth action. However, after Iron Man gets his upgrade and he and Mallen go at it again, the fight turns into a one-sided beat down that really wasn't fun to watch at all. There's nothing intense or dramatic about it at all and was an unfortunately disappointing follow up to their first fight.

      ARE YOU SEEING WHAT I'M SEEING?
        Simply put, Adi Granov's art is stunningly beautiful. A beautiful blend of paint style colors and subtle pencils makes for a beautifully drawn book. It's not perfect though. Under close scrutiny, you can see that facial expressions are very bland. With the exception of Mallen, whose face is incredibly emotive in the hands of Granov, everyone's sad face looks exactly the same as their happy face. Very little is given in the way of insight into the mind sets of the characters through their face, which is disappointing to see when everything else looks so great.

        Granov more than makes up for the above complaint, however, with his brilliant depiction of Warren's action scenes. His work beautifully enforces the motivation or idea behind each scene (assuming there is one) and adds greater depth and enjoyment to them. Be warned though, this is not a book for kids. Granov doesn't shy away from showing the battle in all its detail. The squeamish need not apply.

      ALL THINGS CONSIDERED
        Extremis is a great book and well worth the time of any Iron Man fan as well as being a great starting point for those interested in the character. It has a few missteps, but few books are perfect and it's strengths more than make up for its few faults.

Godkiller: Walk Among Us by Matt Pizzolo and Anna Muckcracker.
Requirement: Any Multimedia Player
File Size: 701 MB.

Video format: AVI. 75 minutes.
Overview: GODKILLER is a twisted, sci-fi/horror adventure about a 16 year old boy’s odyssey through a post-nuke wasteland (populated by fallen gods, organ-stealing hookers, and sex-addicted technowizards) as he searches for a new heart to save his dying sister.

    “Post-nuclear punk odyssey Godkiller is making the jump from indie comic book to ‘illustrated film’ with engaging animation that merges sequential art, 3-D CGI and motion graphics… a horrific yarn of apocalypse, quantum physics, culture jamming and conspiracy theory.”Scott Thill, Wired

Godkiller: Walk Among Us
    Matt Pizzolo story, writer

    Published by Halo8. 2011.

      Godkiller is a transmedia series of graphic novels, illustrated films, and novels created by award-winning filmmaker Matt Pizzolo that tells the stories of human beings caught in the crossfire of warring fallen gods.

      The core series is a trilogy of feature-length illustrated films beginning with Godkiller: Walk Among Us, illustrated by Anna Muckcracker and featuring performances by Lance Henriksen, Davey Havok (singer AFI), Danielle Harris, Bill Moseley, Lydia Lunch, Nicki Clyne, and Justin Pierre (singer Motion City Soundtrack). The series is particularly notable for its use of experimental and innovative media formats, such as the illustrated film format Pizzolo developed with producer Brian Giberson that merges sequential art with 3D CGI, motion graphics and dramatic voice performances in the style of a radio play.

      Pizzolo and Muckcracker are currently at work on the second part of the trilogy Godkiller: Tomorrow's Ashes.

      Pizzolo said about the inspiration behind Godkiller:
        "I thought it would be fun to design a new mythology for fuck-ups and misfits. My goal with it is to present heroes that don't behave heroically because it's their job to maintain the status quo or because they're bored and want to rescue a princess, they act heroically because they're regular misfits who are trying to do the best they can for each other in an unjust, fucked-up world."

Thor and Loki: Blood Brother by Marvel Comics

Overview: There are two sides to every story. You've heard Thor's -- now it's time to hear Loki's. Odin's least favorite son rewrites Asgardian lore from his perspective, featuring the breathtaking painted artwork of Esad Ribic (WOLVERINE). In this story, Loki's insatiable lust for power, his conflicted sentiments toward Sif, his antipathy toward Balder, and the deep-seated feelings of longing and resentment toward his older brother, Thor, and uncaring father, Odin, will take on new meaning. And if that's not enough, just stare at the lush painted art by Ribic - you won't be disappointed!

    Collecting Loki #1-4, Journey Into Mystery #85, Thor #12 and material from Journey Into Mystery #112.

      Blood Brothers, Reviewed by shawn87 on April 30, 2011.
        The Story:
          Loki has become ruler of Asgard and finds that things aren't the way he envisioned them being when this moment in time came to be. As doubts surface from within himself and from other Asgardians, Loki needs to find a way to prove himself worthy to rule, so he condemns Thor to be killed.


        My Thoughts:
          This four issue mini-series is written by Robert Rodi. The primary focus is on Loki rather than Thor. Thor is in the story held prisoner, however, his role is very limited, so if you were looking for a Thor comic full of Asgardian fighting, you may want to reconsider reading this. This is basically for fans of Loki who want to read more about his character and see what would happen when he achieves his deepest desires.

          Robert Rodi did a good job portraying the relationship between Thor and Loki. When Loki became ruler of Asgard things didn't happen like you would have imagined. That's what made the story so compelling. You would think Loki would wreak all kinds of havoc, but yet we find him in doubt. He's not the confident ruler you would have thought he would be. The imprisonment of Thor is weighing heavily on his conscious. Most surprising is the ending where Loki has a change of heart. I wont ruin what happens after that, I'll just say it's worth the read to find out.

          This volume also collects Journey Into Mystery #85 and #112 as well as Thor #12. Not completely sure why Marvel decided to include those issues in this trade.

          The art is by Esad Ribic. He pencils, inks and paints it all by himself. His style here is very unique. I thought it suited this type of comic very well. It's something I wouldn't want to see on a regular basis, but it is a nice change of pace.

          I would probably only recommend this to long time fans of Thor. If you're new to Thor and the rest of Asgard I wouldn't recommend this as your first Thor comic. It is easy to jump in and follow but to get a better grasp on the character of Thor, I would recommend his series first. After reading that I would recommend this next to get a better look into Loki's world.

Superman: Red Son by Mark Millar
Requirement: Any Multimedia Player
File Size: 773 MB.
Resolution: 640*368 & 864*480
Video format: AVI. 84 minutes
Overview: Their planet on the brink of destruction, Jor-El and Lara send off their infant son in a small spacecraft, hurtling towards Earth. The child, Kal-El, crash-lands safely...but not in Kansas. Instead, he makes his new home on a collective in the Soviet Union!

    Superman: Red Son is a three-issue prestige format comic book mini-series published by DC Comics that was released under their Elseworlds imprint in 2003. Author Mark Millar created the comic with the premise "what if Superman had been raised in the Soviet Union?" It received critical acclaim and was nominated for the 2004 Eisner Award for best limited series.

    The story mixes alternate versions of DC super-heroes with alternate-reality versions of real political figures such as Joseph Stalin and John F. Kennedy. The series spans approximately 1953-2001, save for a futuristic epilogue.

    In Red Son, Superman's rocket ship lands on a Ukrainian collective farm rather than in Kansas, an implied reason being a small time difference (a handful of hours) from the original timeline, meaning Earth's rotation placed Ukraine in the ship's path instead of Kansas. Instead of fighting for "...truth, justice, and the American Way", Superman is described in Soviet radio broadcasts "...as the Champion of the common worker who fights a never-ending battle for Stalin, socialism, and the international expansion of the Warsaw Pact." His "secret identity" (i.e. the name his adoptive parents gave him) is a state secret.

        As mentioned previously, Juice Films also handled The Walking Dead motion comic. Sadly, all of the company's employees have not been seen or heard from since a muttering, bearded Englishmen with a penchant for dark magick is rumored to have paid them a visit. You see, if Alan Moore hated the live-action Watchmen film, you can only imagine how much he despised having his work transformed into a barely moving comic in which every character is voiced by the same person. But the thing is, I love this for exactly these reasons. As the sole voiceover artist involved in this project, Tom Stechschulte had the thankless task of creating a unique vocalization for every character. Somehow, he pulled this off and made the goofy gimmick work. But that's not the only unlikely success story to come from what many of you may see as a sacrilegious undertaking. (Let's face it, even attempting to adapt the story in any form, especially one as basic as a motion comic, takes some serious cojones). By breaking Watchmen up into half-hour chunks, the folks at DC have given us the greatest comic-based TV series that never was. Even if it is in a rudimentary form. The story adjusts to the episodic format remarkably well, so much so that it was even broadcast internationally on stations like the BBC. One of the criticisms that Zack Synder had to endure with his film adaptation was that he infused it with a bombast that some felt disrespected the source material. No such problem here. Above you'll see the infamous squid sequence is recreated with downright poetic reverence for the original. This is a haunting sequence that, if I wanted to be transformed into a newt while I'll slept tonight, I'd say is more effective here than on the printed page. And those on-screen word balloons may be a bit jarring, but they sure do allow for some hardcore movieoke sessions, eh?

    Watchmen: The Complete Motion Comic (in stores March 3, 2009) is as near as you’re going to get on a 100% adaptation of the series. You can complain all you want about what was omitted from the film (out March 6, 2009) or what was changed. If that bothers you too much, this DVD will salve that wound.

    Similar in style to the old Marvel superhero cartoons from the mid-1960’s, this series of 12 animated episodes uses the beautiful Dave Gibbons art as the groundwork for the animation. Panels from the comic are zoomed, faded and transitioned on the screen. Word balloons are animated and fade in and out with the dialog.

    Much like the Watchmen series itself, the animation is full of little details and nuances. Background elements move and change. Characters appear and disappear. For as simple as it is, the animation is amazingly well done. Anytime Rorschach is on the screen, his mask undulates and changes.

    The entire series of shorts are narrated by Tom Stechschulte. He changes his voice subtly and sometimes greatly depending on the character. His Ozymandias is perfect and manages to capture the menace and false importance the character has created for himself. Similarly, his Walter Kovacs is a common, almost unassuming voice. But when he puts on the Rorschach mask, his voices changes to something deeper and gravelly.

    It’s a subtle line between voice-acting and narration. While he does change his voice, the voices are never over-the-top or overplayed. I think it’s the perfect choice for this series of shorts. A complete voice cast would take away from the inherent beauty of the words Alan Moore has written. As it stands, with the “singular voice” and the onscreen accompaniment of the text and world balloons, you’ll find yourself absorbed into the series and hanging on the words as they are read.

    The only minor complaint I have is his voice work for the female characters in the story is a little off. He attempts—at times—to sound feminine, but it just seems off. I’m not sure what the solution would have been, but it’s the only thing that bothered me in this series.

    While I don’t think you’ll get the same experience from this as you would from reading the comic, I think this is a great way to explore Watchmen. I sat down originally intending to watch and episode and see what it was like and I found myself engrossed and watching several in a row.

    At 325 minutes, nothing but the subtext has been left out and that is the only true flaw I can find with this version. The forced pace of the audio/video version doesn’t give you time to see the clues that Moore and Gibbons plant through the series. You can’t reflect on what you’ve “read” and you’ll likely miss so many of the clues and hints that are dropped from issue 1.

    The DVD has a preview of the Wonder Woman animated feature from DC and that’s it as far as extras go. With all the content that’s on these two DVDs, I don’t think you need anything extra.

    Plot:
      Watchmen Motion Comics: Chapter 1, At Midnight, All the Agents
        A murder takes place in New York City. The Comedian, a former costumed crime fighter, was thrown out the window of a skyscraper. This event triggers an investigation that rounds up many of The Comedian’s former superhero allies, who are now banned from carrying out any acts of “justice.”

      Watchmen Motion Comics: Chapter 3, The Judge of All the Earth
        As the world braces for what could be a doomsday scenario between the U.S. and Russia, Laurie leaves Dr. Manhattan and goes to Dan for consoling. Meanwhile, the media puts Dr. Manhattan under scrutiny, linking him to a rash of cancer deaths, and forcing him to escape to the planet Mars.

        During his self-exile on Mars, Dr. Manhattan recalls his youth as Jon Osterman, son of a watchmaker who forced him into a career in nuclear physics. But a terrible accident in an atomic lab turns Osterman into a radioactive “super being” causing him to sacrifice his relationship with his first love.

      Watchmen Motion Comics: Chapter 5, Fearful Symmetry
        Rorschach continues his investigation into the murder of The Comedian as another former costumed hero, Ozymandias, is attacked and almost killed.

      Watchmen Motion Comics: Chapter 8, Old Ghosts
        Laurie and Dan start putting together pieces of a conspiracy that leads them to the decision to go break Rorschach out of prison. When they all return to Dan's apartment, Dr. Manhattan return from his self-exile on Mars and wisks Laurie away so they can discuss the situation.

        Dr. Manhattan takes Laurie to Mars, and embarks on a journey back through time, reliving the events of Laurie’s past in order to find clues about the nature of humanity and how he might be able to affect the turmoil that is choking the world. After many revalations, Dr. Manhattan decides what he must do.

      Watchmen Motion Comics: Chapter 10, Two Riders Were Approaching…
        Rorschach and Nite Owl suspect that the hunting down of former costumed vigilantes may have been conspired by one of their own. After discovering evidence of a far reaching conspiracy in Adrian Veidt’s office, they head off to Antarctica to confront Ozymandias at his retreat.

      Watchmen Motion Comics: Chapter 11, Look On My Works, Ye Mighty…
        As Adrian Veidt waits in Antarctica for the arrival of Nite Owl and Rorschach, he remembers his life and what led him to the decisions that he made. Before Nite Owl and Rorschach can stop hm, Adrain puts into motion a frightening chain of events that will either save the world… or destroy it.

      Watchmen Motion Comics: Chapter 12, A Stronger Loving World
