    During the Marvel TV panel the announced a ton of knew Marvel Knights Animation releases.
    *They will finish Whedon & Casady's Astonishing X-Men with two more volumes.
    *Paul Jenkin's and Jae Lee's Inhumans
    *Joe Quesada, Paul Jenkins and Andy Kubert's Wolverine: Origins
    *Neil Gaiman's Eternals
    *Jason Aaron, Esad Ribic, and Ron Garney's Wolverine: Weapon X
    *Damon Lindelof and Leinil Francis Yu's Ultimate Hulk vs. Wolverine
    I don't know if anyone else has followed these, but I watched the Spider-Woman: Agent of Sword series, and the first Whedon/Casady's Astonishing X-Men arc and I really enjoyed them. I plan on checking out Iron Man: Extremis soon too.

    These are motion comics not real animation.

    In the lap of squalor I assure you.
    if they move a little bit, then they're animated.

    I saw the Thor animated series from 1966 recently.

    I thought my dvd plyer was broken.

    Shit didn't move.

    And the stories seem eerily familiar..

    Oh.

    Frakk me.

    It's a motion comic.

    All the first volumes of Marvels red letter titles form their origins have been motion comics since 10 years before I was born...

    I keep meaning to getting around to Extremis too.

    I've had it forever.

    Marvel Knights Animation is just the title the banner their motion comics under. I made sure to call them motion comics in both the thread title and my post.
    I'll admit, when I did my first motion comic, the first AXM arc, I wasn't sure what to make of it, but by the time I'd finished Spider-Woman, I actually really liked them.
