  1. Artistically it’s an interesting idea and I give them credit for trying something new. But I would rather watch animation or read comics over this.

    I watched the Spider-Woman motion comic and also read the comic book. The comic book definately felt more complete. It just seems to me that for the alloted time on the motion comic was not enough for a complete story. Where as in in comic books, the 32 pages usually seem good enough.

    It might have been the execution too and perhaps a motion comic in full novel format will be more enjoyable. By the way, there is something really creepy about watching static images move too …

  2. No motion comics available on the UK/Ireland iTunes Store yet. Marvel would really want to get the finger out for readers in Europe.

  3. I’m with AmirCat.  I respect that they’re trying to push the boundaries of entertainment around, but I just don’t see why something that’s not quite a comic book, and not quite animation is a really interesting thing?  Why, just because we can read them on a new piece of technology, are comics with static images and no sound suddenly insufficient?  You don’t see novels that spin multiple possibilities of outcomes, or have blinking passages for spoken sections, just because we can read them on an e-reader.  Why this pressing need to "change" comics?

  4. Usally i don’t like motion comics cause it’s just moving panels with people reading the dialogue waay different then I do. But extremeis is really sweet. That’s the way they should be done. There’s just enuff motion to make it a cartoon and no word bubbles, which is insanly annoying. If I wanna read the story, I’ll READ the story. It feels like a nice chuck of thought was put into making this one better and I’m on board.
