A Preview of the Legion: Prophets Prequel Comic Book

7 Comments

Wow, is this the future of comic books? Artwork and dialogue translated into a digital version with “moving” art and added sound effects? Maybe I’m just a purist, but I’m not sure I’ll ever be able to “read” comic books this way. Also, I’m a pretty slow reader, and I like to get my fill of a page before I flip on to the next one, and I’m not sure if I want some video demanding I read faster. I’m just saying, it ain’t the boss of me. In any case, here’s a preview for the new comic book “Legion: Prophets” from IDW Publishing. “Prophets” is a prequel to the upcoming movie by Scott Stewart starring Paul Bettany as a fallen angel who comes to Earth to save humanity. Tough job, but someone’s gotta do it.

In the supernatural action thriller Legion, an out-of-the-way diner becomes the unlikely battleground for the survival of the human race. When God loses faith in Mankind, he sends his legion of angels to bring on the Apocalypse. Humanity’s only hope lies in a group of strangers trapped in a desert diner and the Archangel Michael (Paul Bettany). Legion also stars Dennis Quaid, Lucas Black, Tyrese Gibson, Kate Walsh, Adrianne Palicki, Charles S. Dutton and Willa Holland and is directed by Scott Stewart.

    The new comic: “Moving” Art with sound effects…. call me crazy, but it sounds like animation

      Nope. Not really. Yes it moves. but not fully it’s as if someone takes specific parts of each panel an animates it but for the most part it’s just an animated audio book. pictures move a little but not across the screen and it’s still the original comic panel.
      The “Watchmen” motion comic isn’t that great cause they only had the once voice, like a true audio book. But at least this, and I guess the “Wanted” motion comic has a cast.
