It was announced this would happen before the film even came out, so it's not that big a shock.
I can't wait to see the Black Freighter stuff integrated into the film, I never overly enjoyed the TOTBF segments that much in the comic, but I thought the animated adaption was brilliant.
As for the Motion Comic, I already have it on the seperate DVD, so that seems a bit pointless (it is excellent though)
So I'd love to get my hands on this. But I have a very strong suspicion this isn't gonna get released on Region 2... count on it
