Have you ever looked at your favorite comic and thought, "Hey, I want to see this move, except not really be animation or a movie?" Well, we never have, which is why motion comics mostly mystify us as a weird, inbred cross-media chimera, but every now and then it can be fun to see something lurch to life on the internet, if only for the novelty value. Especially if that "something" is Kate Beaton comics, since pretty much anything + Kate Beaton is better than it would have been otherwise.

Squadron B has created motion comic version of three "Hark! A Vagrant" favorites: "Dude Watchin' With the Brontes," The Case of the Two Watsons, and "Beethoven." Check them out after the jump.Dude Watching With the Brontes
