Motion Comic: The Killer
With misty-eyed nostalgia we sometimes look back at one of the (if not the) first interactive motion comics ever made, The Killer. Made by us, that is! And it still holds, after all these years. See also our 2011 motion comic The Art of Pho
Published by Submarine Channel in 2001, The Killer is a twelve-part interactive animation series based on the famous French graphic novel series Le Tueur by Jacamon and Matz. Creative director of the online adaptation of The Killer was the then very young, very upcoming motion designer and animator Fons Schiedon.
Back in 2001, we wrote:
The Killer is not a movie and it’s not a comic, rather it’s an in-between medium that engages the viewer in the ice-cold monologues of a contract killer, via a ground-breaking, interactive format.
