Madvillain – Motion comic music video

21 12 2009

This music video for Madvillain (MF DOOM and Madlib) successfully merges a comic book aesthetic with drawn animation to great effect. The animators have clearly been influenced by early motion comics, such as The Incredible Hulk. The two scientists who mutate into Super-powered beings can clearly be associated with Bruce Banner (Hulk) and Samuell Sterns (The Leader)

Some of the more imaginative sequences in the animation include: running between comic book panels, subverted 60’s comic book advertisements, ripping part of a ‘panel’ to use a shield, falling down through vertical comic book panels and animated Kirby-esque energy fields.
