Darn, That ‘Motion Comic’ Name Is Sticking
Yet another company jumps on the “motion comic” bandwagon…
Eagle One Media sent out a press release announcing that they were producing “animated motion comic productions” of Street Fighter (formerly a video game) and Voltron: Defender of the Universe (formerly an anime series) to air on Syfy starting September 28.
Since the Eagle One website prominently pushes their cartoon DVDs of the same titles, I guess I know where they’re getting the content. I find it amusing that, although they mention that the DVDs were based on Udon (Street Fighter) and DD Publishing (Devil’s Due? Voltron) comics, they’re sort of irrelevant at this point. Anyone interested in these limited animation videos will likely come from the other, more popular media incarnations, not from comics that were themselves licensed properties.
