  1. I think I’ve read this comic. … Why, yes, yes I have.

    Motion comics are fun, so long as they are inexpensive. I still enjoy the ability to slowly savor the book I hold in my hands.

    But Joss’s AXM run was one of my favorite reads in a long time, especially in later issues. So I will look forward to this motion comic and hope they do the entire story arc in this format.

    But I was confused. That was Hannah Montana changing clothes in the locker room, right? And the blue furry guy on the team…is that The Beast from the “Beauty and the Beast” movie?

  2. I think I saw that on an episode of Assy McGee… oh wait.. :-) I think it looks pretty cool in the style they’re animating it. I just don’t know if some of the frames are best for animation though.
