I noticed that the iTunes store has the first ten-minute episode of the Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 8 Motion Comic. Looks interesting. The animation style is like the comic come to life, but at times seems a little frenetic. The voices aren’t by the original cast, but aren’t bad.

As an experience I find it more pleasant than trying to read a comic book. I find comics rather frustrating; if I read at my normal pace I tend to read the words and ignore the artwork, but if I spend my time looking at the artwork I get bored with the whole process. One can’t accuse the “motion comic” of a slow pace.

They promise a new episode every week. I’ll look forward to episode two.
