Red Sonja Expands Motion Comics for Shout! Factory

When motion comics started, several publishers were doing them, but then Marvel ran away with the format, putting out a number of X-Men and Wolverine titles with Shout! Factory. I haven’t seen any yet this year — although I admit, I’m not a huge fan so I don’t pay close attention — so I was surprised to note that last week, Red Sonja: Queen of Plagues was released. For one thing, I was surprised to see them still coming out […]

Marvel Motion Comics Continue Wolverine Focus

After the release of Wolverine: Origin last month, Shout! Factory has announced the next Marvel Knights motion comic DVD release will be Ultimate Wolverine Vs. Hulk, due out September 10. Another Wolverine title makes sense, given this summer’s The Wolverine movie release. I hadn’t thought about Ultimate Wolverine Vs. Hulk since its release, since it was notorious for taking a ridiculous amount of time to continue, probably because it was written by Damon Lindelof (Lost), whom one assumes had other […]

Marvel Knights Motion Comics to Continue With Inhumans

I had thought that the Marvel Knights Animation motion comic series from Shout! Factory might be wrapping up after the four-volume Joss Whedon Astonishing X-Men releases. I was wrong. Shout! Factory has just announced that Inhumans, based on the (out of print) comic by Paul Jenkins and Jae Lee with the same cover, will be out on DVD on April 23. List price is $14.97, same as previous Marvel Knights Animation releases, and the bonus feature is “A Look Back […]

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 […]

Marvel Knights Motion Comics Continue With Astonishing X-Men: Dangerous

I guess there wasn’t an appropriate Avengers story to put out for the movie … Marvel has announced that the next release in the Marvel Knights line of motion comics will be Astonishing X-Men: Dangerous. This is a return to the characters from the first entry in the Shout! Factory DVD series, which was Astonishing X-Men: Gifted. Since then, there’s been Iron Man: Extremis, Black Panther, Spider-Woman: Agent of S.W.O.R.D., and Thor & Loki: Blood Brothers. Astonishing X-Men: Dangerous is […]

Marvel Motion Comics Come to Blu-Ray

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. 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, […]

Darn, Motion Comics Aren’t Dead Yet: Buffy Season 8, Black Panther Yanked

I had thought, after not hearing of any new motion comics since last year, that the unholy hybrid of comic panels and limited animation had died out like the fad it was. Unfortunately, this week’s Comic-Con-focused issue of Entertainment Weekly brings the news that Dark Horse is turning their Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season Eight into a motion comic that will cover the first 19 issues. It launches on iTunes this week with a DVD to follow later this year. […]

History Comics: The Great Chicago Fire: Rising From the Ashes

History Comics: The Great Chicago Fire: Rising From the Ashes was one of the first releases from this new comics line from publisher First Second, who has had great success with their Science Comics. As written by Kate Hannigan and illustrated by Alex Graudins, this is the story of two siblings (and a puppy, for additional cuteness) who get caught up in the 1871 fire that devastated Chicago and left a third of the city homeless. Trying to do a […]
