Marvel and DC Comics have released their latest animation endeavors with the “Spider-Woman” motion comic, and the first four minutes of “Green Lantern: First Flight”. We would embed the clips to the body of this article, but they’ve crashed my browser four times since this morning. So, apologies.
The Spider-Woman “motion comic” which still just sounds like a classed up version of saying cartoon, much in the same way that “graphic novel” pertains to comics looks pretty fantastic. Written by Brian Michael Bendis and drawn by his “Daredevil” partner Alex Maleev, this is something that looks patently gorgeous. The entire movie will be shown at the”Marvel Digital Comics” panel Friday, July 25th at 5:30pm in room 6DE of the San Diego Convention Center.
Though it wouldn’t be Con if the other half of the Big Two didn’t have something premiering as well to conflict with that. That is “Green Lantern: First Flight” which our friend Rick Marshall over at MTV’s Splash Page has the first four-minute clip of the film. The movie premieres Thursday night at 8pm in Ballroom 20. For those of us not attending the convention, we’re just going to have to wait for the DVD to come out July 28th.
Coming up, we’ll give you our guide to surviving the San Diego Comic Con and what we think you’d like to check out.
