‘Inhumans’ Motion Comic – Prelude to a live-action film?

30 01 2013

Arguably Marvel Comics most eclectic and odd gathering of super-powered beings (and I include the X-Men in that list), the Inhumans have always intrigued me, ever since I saw them in a Fantastic Four reprint from the sixties. Their king, Black-Bolt always fascinated me as a young comic book reader. Here was a being of immense power, tempered by a stony silence as a result of his earth-shattering voice (which raised Attilan to the ground when he was a baby). The motion comic will be available from 23 April 2013.

“The Inhumans have always been one of Marvels most enduring oddities. A race of genetic outsiders, they live secluded in their island kingdom of Attilan, preferring not to mix with the outside world. Even stranger, their genetic mutations are self-endowed; each Inhuman, as a coming-of-age ritual, endures exposure to the Terrigen Mists, a strange substance that imparts unearthly powers — some extraordinary, some monstrous.”

20 01 2013

Written, Directed and Produced by Edson Oda, ‘Malaria’ is a wonderfully innovative and well-crafted animation that combines various animation techniques to good effect. Furthermore, Oda’s script is both imaginative and deftly crafted, which further enhances the impact of his work.

From the Vimeo website:

“MALARIA tells the story of Fabiano, a young Mercenary who is hired to kill Death. This short film combines Origami, Kirigami, Time lapse, nankin illustration, Comic Books and Western Cinema.”
