This article examines the recent emergence of the motion comic as part of a growing relationship between comic books, animation and new forms of digital entertainment and distribution. Motion comics typically appropriate the narrative and ‘static’ artwork of a comic book, which is then manipulated by animation software such as Adobe’s After Effects to create an impression that is similar to paper-cut animation. Early examples of the motion comic form include the episodic web-based Broken Saints (Burgess 2001), as well as Saw: Rebirth (Shuter and Viney 2005). This article will reveal a number of motion comic aesthetics via a brief analysis of Watchmen (Moore and Gibbons 1987) (Hughes 2008). A number of interactive digital comic narratives are also explored, including Pocom (Gauld and Goodbrey 2003) and an overview of the app-based title, CIA: Operation Ajax (Burwen 2011).
