Review: This release is the first time we get the Marvel Knights motion comic series from Shout! Factory on blu-ray!  I really dig that they released it as a 2-film set.  Spider-Woman is based on the seven-part mini-series by Brian Michael Bendis, a comic book legend.  The motion comics are a ton of fun.  You may need to get used to the format at first, but you get the original artwork from the comic book series, which is a great treat.  We highly recommend this release.  Its a fantastic Marvel tale.  The other story, Iron Man: Extremis, mixes 3D and 2D animation.  Its a great and a great story.  I found it very entertaining after I adapted to the motion comic style of animation.  Hopefully Marvel will go towards straight animation soon!  These both look great in high-def!

Special features on Spider-Woman include: Visual history of Spider-Woman, Exclusive music video and Trailers.  The Special features on Iron Man include:A conversation with Adi Granov, Behind-the-scenes look at Marvel Knights Animation, Marvel Super Heroes™: What The —?, Exclusive music video, Trailers…and more!

Interest Range: Shout! Factory, Marvel Comics
