Dark Horse Teams With Felicia Day For Weekly Free Motion Comics on YouTube
As Marvel seemingly abandons the Motion Comics format for "Infinite Comics," Dark Horse is ramping up production on its own Motion Comics with a twist: Instead of selling the comics as digital downloads or on DVD as in the past, these all-new Motion Comics are being created for Felicia Day's very own YouTube channel, Geek & Sundry.Dark Horse has been involved in the limited animation world of Motion Comics before - The first few arcs of Buffy The Vampire Slayer: Season 8 were adapted and released as digital downloads a couple of years ago - but the new partnership with Geek & Sundry will see adaptations of popular series such as Usagi Yojimbo, Hellboy, The Goon and The Umbrella Academy, using "never-before-seen motion graphic techniques," released every Wednesday starting next month.
Geek & Sundry, announced at this weekend's Wondercon, is Felicia Day's contribution to the YouTube premium channel network. In addition to Dark Horse's Motion Comics, the channel will feature all-new material from Day (including the new season of her web series The Guild), Wil Wheaton and internet musical cult, Paul & Storm. The channel officially launches April 2, but already has previews of its six new shows up to tease and tantalize.
