Via Newsarama, "Warner Bros. Digital Distribution and Warner Premiere announced today a new way for graphic novel fans to connect with their favorite characters and the stories they know and love through short-form digital content. “Warner Premiere’s Motion Comics” draw on a massive amount of source material to bring a visually engaging experience to life through the use of subtle movements, voice-overs, sweeping music scores and stunning comic book artwork."
To start the program, for the next two weeks, you can download Part One of Watchmen for free, via Entertainment Weekly, which will redirect you to iTunes. From there you can import the Motion Comic to you iPod or iPhone. Each following episode will cost you $1.99 a piece. Also, on Xbox Live and Verizon's VCast service you can download Batman: Mad Love, which will become available starting July 22. Expect more news on Motion Comics at this year's San Diego Comic-Con!
I've downloaded the free "episode" of Watchmem, despite owning the actual book. I will say, with the music and voice over, it makes the comic more engaging, in similar fashion to the Metal Gear Solid: Digital Graphic Novel. And considering this first episode is roughly over 25 minutes, there's no excuse for yo to not check this out while it's free.
