Comic Book Trailers

A post on re-purposing comics and illustration into animation

Here are some new comic book trailers I have discovered on-line…

Mangaman by Barry Lyga with illustrations by Colleen Doran (A Distant Soil). A boy from a Manga (Japaneses Comic) universe somehow gets transported to the ‘real’ world and goes to an American high school. Published by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Publishing http://www.hmhbooks.com/
Just a nice trailer that gets the idea across.

A trailer for dave lapp’s CHILDREN OF THE ATOM with animation by Michael Darmanin and Dalton Sharp. Published by Conundrum Press http://www.conundrumpress.com
I just saw this trailer posted on the Canadian comic website/blog: Sequential and found the animation worked pretty well, but the music does get a bit repetitive.

This BD(French language comic) by the artist Stanislas and based on a famous radio drama by Jacques Tardi and Michel Boujut that was broadcast in France in the late 1990s. Published by Dargaud http://www.dargaud.com/
Wow, lots of animation in this one. Very nicely done with good music.

I just discovered Reed Gunter by Shane and Chris Houghton while looking at the latest art at Comic Art Fans. I was surprised I had not seen the comic before and I hope to be able to pick up some copies soon. The art is clean and full of appeal in the talesĀ  of a cowpoke and his bear.
I really like the animation in this trailer.
