Motion Comics-- What's out there

I've spent a few hours today watching a couple of the Daredevil motion comics I have on DVD. The only other ones Ive seen are the ones Crossgen put out some years back. I like the concept of them. They remind me of old filmstrip stories they used to show us in elementary school back in the 1980's.

What other ones are out there? I know of the Crossgen and Marvels Ultimate line, the Watchmen, Daredevil, Wolverine, and the couple of Hulk ones. Those all came out prior to 2005. Are they still producing any in this format?

Re: Motion Comics-- What's out there

There is a Marvel Knights series that has had an interesting up-and-down pattern in terms of quality.
I should have a review of THOR AND LOKI: BLOOD BROTHERS up in a day, but I've reviewed all of the others here previously.

Long story short:

ASTONISHING X-MEN: Fantastic story, limited animation, most enjoyable entry.
IRON MAN- EXTREMIS: Solid story, wonderful art, horrible CGI custom created animation.
BLACK PANTHER: Limited animation, awful, awful story. In reality it was a flopped TV (mini)series.
SPIDER-WOMAN- AGENT OF SWORD: Almost no animation, dull as dirt story for the format, poor voice acting.
THOR AND LOKI- BLOOD BOTHERS: Best effort in the genre as far as animation styles goes, title is misleading as the story focuses on Loki, but overall a solid story, although like Spider-Woman, an odd choice for a motion comic.

Most of them are available in HD on Netflix streaming now. I think Iron Man and (especially) X-Men are by far the best of all of them.
