Joss Whedon Marvel Motion Comics Continue With Torn
Continuing the motion comic adaptations from Joss Whedon’s run on Astonishing X-Men, Astonishing X-Men: Torn will be available on August 14.
The motion comic version of Astonishing X-Men: Gifted first came out in September 2010, with Dangerous following last month. That was only the first half of the Joss Whedon and John Cassady run that began in 2005, though. The third book, Astonishing X-Men: Torn, reprinted issues #13-18 and will be adapted here.
The motion comic version of Torn, if it follows in the pattern of Dangerous, will consist of six 9-to-11-minute chapters (not counting credits) and no extras. The story features the team wondering about Emma Frost while facing off against a new version of the Hellfire Club.
Given how interconnected the continuing stories are — you won’t want to watch Torn without having seen the previous installments, and it leads into the next storyline, setting up a trip to Breakworld — I assume this means we’ll eventually see a motion comic of Unstoppable, the fourth and final version of the Whedon/Cassady run. Perhaps for Christmas?
