Effectively animated Comic strip

The Bouletcorp  (http://english.bouletcorp.com/ ) is a strip done by a widely published French cartoonist who is slowly translating some of his works into English (One strip every month or so). The strips vary from weird to hilarious, but what caught my eye was Boulet’s 3.28.18 strip (“When I am alone”), in which the the punch of the strip is made by five animated panels . Having never seen effective animation in a comic before, I thought it was worth sharing.

    To be sure, I’ve seen distracting and unnecessary animations in comics where the strip would be far more effective with a still picture.   Boulet’s strip would get a small smile with still pictures  but the animations are delightful and really 'make the joke.'

Those are great! Thanks for sharing the site.

I remember watching the Astonishing X-Men motion comics, which were...okay. But I agree. Animation in comics is super tricky to pull off.
