You excited for this weekend’s premiere of the AMC remake of the Prisoner, with James Caviezel and Sir Ian McKellen?
Well, if you’re truly jonesing to jump back to the Village, AMC has something for you — a motion comic preceding the series, written by M. Scott Veach, and art by Mitch Breitweiser.
In a lot of ways, it looks like a ton of work — but boy does it pay off. Using different drawings on a static background as opposed to moving one stationary image, this may very well be one of the better motion comics I’ve seen, and that’s without music and voiceovers.
The first chapter — totally free, mind you — is up on AMC’s web site.
UPDATE: Whew, a little hasty with my trigger finger there — Warren Ellis rightly notes the credits, which I somehow missed. Thanks for the heads-up!
