Free! But not really.
If you clicked through from the iTunes email, then clicked on "GET EPISODE" you were told it's not free anymore because its status has changed. Hmmm...
Thank goodness it was free.
I was initially excited when I saw this, as the Superman: Red Son comic was very entertaining. I had the expectation it would have a level of animation similar to a regular 'superhero' type animated show. I was sorely mistaken. Imagine if someone took a frame out of a comic book and made it wiggle a bit. That is the level of animation found in this series. Needless to say I was underwhelmed. Save yourself money and time by just picking up the actual comic book, which is quite good. This 'animated' series, however, is not.
An exciting translation of a great Superman Elseworlds series
Ive really enjoyed these motion comics from Batman and Watchmen, and this one looks just as good. If you have read the books you know whats to come and I will definitely be getting the entire season. I hope they continue to make more of these. To the reviewer who rated this a one star just because he couldnt download the free episode. You could have just waited until it was available, free or pay. How self-centered do you have to be to mark something down when you havent even seen it.
