Joss Whedon's Buffy The Vampire Slayer comic is getting its own animated recreation... sort of. Think Watchmen-style motion comic, but hopefully without horrible voiceovers. So how long until that scene? Comics spoilers below.
So yeah, I'm asking about the steamy scene in the comic between Buffy and Satsu, you know what I mean. But it doesn't even stop there: I'd love to see the Harmony reality TV show fleshed out a bit more as well. According to TV Overmind that's all possible. In an exclusive tip, a reader wrote in saying that there will be a Buffy motion comic made from the eighth season comics. They're not sure if it's going to be strictly like the aforementioned Watchmen motion comic, made out of the frames from the comic, or a fully animated series, but it will be based on comics either from the 8th season and even, quite possibly from comics written during the franchise's original run. So there's a lot of options. Personally I'm pulling for the 8th season.
What is certain is that because they're using the comic books as their starting point, all our favorite characters will be returning and this animated series will compliment the original series. Whether any of the original cast will provide voices is uncertain (though I'm doubtful). But Joss Whedon is involved.
While we're not massive fans of motion comics, and they do tend to get a bit cheesebally, the one thing they know how to do is suck in the ipod zombie youths. Watchmen's motion comic was distributed by itunes (and I hear did pretty great at getting the kids into Moore's world). There's no telling where this would be released, but since Joss is involved I'd hope it's done Dr. Horrible-style with the ability to download. If we can get a new generation of kids involved, then who knows what's next?
