I'll give it a download. I know Marvel has been pushing this for the last few months.

What is a Motion comic? Is it a moving comic or a brand name?

It's just a moving comic with SFX and VO.

The characters themselves don't move i think, the pages flip and everything, plus there's sound.

I enjoy the videos and puns posted by Joliet Jake. I think he's almost as funny as my favorite comedian, Dane Cook. Now excuse me while I listen to Fallout Boy's music on their myspace page.

If your definition of a cartoon is everything "drawn, animated w/ sound" then yeah, I guess it technically could be. It's just the style in which they present it is very much like reading a comic. Metal Gear Digital Graphic Novel & The Watchmen Digital Comic are some of the more well known of there kind.

Its the Metal Gear Motion Comic style.

The trailer actually gives an idea of how it works.


Here is one for a batman comic.



The backgrounds mostly move, there is a little character animation, but not really like a cartoon.

I guess it's different for each one but I know in The Watchmen they have some slight animation. Just moving arms, walking, but nothing drastic.

Watched this a couple days ago and I must say, it was pretty bad. Here's my complaints:

It is not "new reader" friendly. To understand what's going on then knowledge of Marvel's Secret Invasion is required. They do try to give the reader a quick synopsis of the event but I couldn't imagine a fresh reader to understand this 100%. Abigail Brand makes a cameo and if you're asking, "who's that?" then I'm not surprised. This is a fairly new medium and one would asume Marvel to choose a character/franchise easier to pick up for newcomers. Perhaps Ultimate Spider-Man would've made a better choice.

Some like Bendis' writing style, some hate it (I happen to like it) but having it read to you aload is not a good thing. It was laughable and cheesy. It sounded very comic bookish and not in a good way. Both Jessica & Brand's dialog with each other is painful.

I kept thinking, "Would this be a something I'd like to read in print form?" The answer is "no." It's simply not a story worth telling. You can always track Jessica's troubles in the pages of "The New Avengers" anyways.

Alex Maleev's art is nice, unfortunatly it's wasted on this venture. I was wanting something with more pop and colors. That may be just me however.

The fight scene got me a little excited. I was thinking "okay now it's gonna get good." Unfortunatly it's over before you know it and is quickly ruined by the awful dialog.

thanks for the review Rod. I thought Brand was in space.
