'Marvel Knights: Inhumans' Trailer Debuts

The animated DVD from the Paul Jenkins/Jae Lee story is coming soon.

Did you read the Marvel Knights volume of INHUMANS by Paul Jenkins and Jae Lee? Shout! Factory is releasing a DVD featuring the Eisner-Award winning series.

The Inhumans have always been one of Marvel’s most enduring oddities. A race of genetic freaks, they live secluded in their island kingdom of Attilan, preferring not to mix with the outside world. Even stranger, their genetic mutations are self-endowed; each Inhuman, as a coming-of-age ritual, endures exposure to the Terrigan Mists, a strange substance that imparts unearthly powers, some extraordinary, some monstrous. But now the kingdom of Attilan is under attack from without and within. Can the Royal Family, led by Black Bolt (who cannot speak for his voice carries the destructive power of an atom bomb) repel the foreign invaders who blast at their outer defense, as well as the internal threat of Black Bolt's brother, Maximus the Mad?

The DVD will be released on April 23.

Bonus Features Include:

A Look Back At The Inhumans with Eisner Award-winning writer Paul Jenkins, Marvel Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada and Supervising Producer Kalia Cheng.

Total Feature Running Time: +/ – 132 minutes. Priced to own at $14.97

@queenfrost_: It shouldn't stop Marvel from producing more animated films. Why would people watch a motion comic they already own?

I would totally buy this, it has potential to be awesome. But like so many others, I hate that motion comics crap.

I dig the idea of Motion Comics however they will get a lot more viewers if they didn't adapt anything and instead made original content. Readers and Animation lovers can't seem to meet in the middle ground for a motion comic adapting (in this case) the inhumans... sooo why not create a completely new original idea? It is cheaper than a full fledged animated movie and people seem to like them since MARVEL keeps making them.

Some of the old Silver Age Marvel stuff could translate well to motion comics (yeah, I know, "don't rape the classics", but they've already been exploited enough). The first Marvel cartoons pretty much were motion comics, with images directly lifted from the panels and slightly moved around to imply animation.

But anyway, I don't think motion comics are the problem. It's just about doing them right, so they don't seem jarring or phony (and trust me, I've seen quite a few terrible motion comics, some of which came from Marvel).

Is that how it's going to look? Seriously disappointing! Proper animation would make me interested enough to buy it, like the Doctor Strange DVD, but this?... I'll pass! A real shame!

I like motion comics and this actually looks neat.
