I don't usually do this but..
I don't usually let itunes' service affect my rating of a product on here, but in this case I will make an exception. Its over £20 for the whole series, which, whilst they are fantastic, you can pay £7.98 to get the same motion comic collection, but on DVD (better I'd say) on Amazon.co.uk. Moreover, whilst these motion comics stand as a enjoyable addition to the comic, they are by no means comparable, and so your money would be FAR more wisely spent on the comic itself (again about £12 on amazon). Great idea, but itunes really are ripping you off.
It's clear that there has been lots of effort put into this but there is one glaring mistake. A male reading a female part! Not a good idea, just when you find yourself really getting into the story Laurie's first appearance is spoilt by the fact that she sounds like a bloke. It is a fantastic achievement, but with so much effort put into it, couldn't they have found other voice actors?
Content Brilliant...Price isn't
The DVD of the motion comic is £7.99. I'll save my pennies and do that. C
