Marvel Motion Comics Come to Blu-Ray
May 11, 2011

In conjunction with the release of the Spider-Woman: Agent of S.W.O.R.D. motion comic DVD on June 14, Shout! Factory has announced a Blu-ray release, exclusive to Best Buy.

Marvel motion comic Blu-ray

The “special edition” pairs the material from the Spider-Woman DVD with the previously released Iron Man: Extremis.

At the time of this writing, Best Buy doesn’t have a listing for the Blu-ray, so I don’t know what the price is expected to be. The regular DVD has a suggested price of $14.97, which Best Buy marks down to $12.99. Many of the other Best Buy Blu-ray exclusives, a variety of genre and niche titles, are currently listed at $16.99, so that might be a guide.

Given that this material was originally developed online, I’m not sure how much of a benefit the increased high-def resolution will be, but it is nice to have both comics in one place.

Update: I’m now told that the exclusivity period with Best Buy is limited, with a wide release of the Blu-ray due in August.

Have you or anyone tried the DC ones? I see they have a two pack with Batgirl Year One and Mad Love, both of which are OOP in paperback form and go for big $$ on ebay. So I was wondering if it’d be worth getting the motion comics….

I didn’t know those had motion comics, so I haven’t seen them. I’d be curious to know what people thought of them, too.

Though it says “This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media. Amazon.com’s standard return policy will apply.”

Has Kevin Conroy listed as actor on it though…

I watched the free preview, kind of nifty. For $5.99 its something I might get on a rainy day.

I finally got around two watching the SpiderWoman motion comic on Netflix. Lots of photoreferencing and kind of slow. But it wasn’t dreadful. It had some good moments and decent voice acting but not something I’d buy or rewatch. Netflix also has the Iron Man Extremis comic but I haven’t watched that one yet.
