Anyone who complained about the voice actor, is crazy. The only reason it is a mans voice for the silk spectre is because it is one man doing all the voices. It is the same as when you listen to a book on tape. He did a fantastic job and this was beautifully done. I can't wait til the next installment!!
An exciting new avenue to enjoy source material
This piece is very beautifully crafted; from the clarity of the art (considering the printing quality of the period) to the presentation of the dialog/ narrative captions. As a consumer, I think this an ingenious vehicle for delivering these stories untainted. I look forward to enjoying in the future. Imagine if before the next Batman installment, definitive stories such as 'The Long Halloween' or even 'Hush' were brought to life using the same technique. Nolan's series draws from so many pieces of material that getting viewers to "read" them can become a daunting task. Since the delivery uses assets that have already been drawn, the biggest improvement that I would love to see is adding top-notch voice acting. The narrator casted many of the male characters quite nicely, but it still feels too much like an audiobook. Expanding the cast to even include a similarly diverse actress would alleviate the issues that many users had with this installment. Truth be told, I am more excited for the next installment of this than I am for Snyder's movie itself. I enjoyed it much more than 'Gotham Knight' and even 'The New Frontier'; which was adapted so heavily that it might as well have been a feature. In fact, I would have much rather payed $1.99 an episode for 'The New Frontier' transformed just like Watchmen, even $3.99 is it used AAA voice acting talent. In closing, Warner Bros; TRANSFORM EVERY PRESTIGE FORMAT SERIES YOU CONTROL! These motion comic books are a subgenre that if geared toward the Web 2.0 generation of your adult fanbase, will extend the shelf life of your most captivating series, while allowing die hard continutity fanatics to enjoy the source material unabridged; engaging newcomers as they bear witness. *Note; I had 30 people watching this episode over my shoulder this evening at a screening of The Dark Knight. A man went to his car and grabbed a set of Walkman speakers so the rest of them could hear it. After watching the Trailer for the Watchment film (and TDK itself) the group unanimously agreed that they are more excited for episode 2 than the film itself.
Five Stars? Is This A Masterpiece When Seperated from the Comic?
It takes gall to find a work so tied to the medium it was produced in and then rip it out mercilessly. However, that's exactly the kind of gall we're seeing with this new Watchmen related media blitz - the trailer, and now this "TV Series" of animated comics panels. Is this a good thing? Does it, and by extention WE, lose out for not having all the supplemental material present in the collected story? Does it lose all of it's meta-textual commentary by being removed from the printed page and made portable and pixelated? Or does the story and experience gain something through voice-over and animation? It's currently unclear. That being said, this whole endevour interesting, and it's a new way to experience one of the best stories of the last 25 years, and it's FREE. Do yourself a favor and download this.
