Marvel is proud to unveil the first full-length trailer to the hotly anticipated Astonishing X-Men: Gifted motion comic, based on the seminal comic story by superstar scribe Joss Whedon (Buffy: The Vampire Slayer) and renowned artist John Cassaday (Captain America). Now you can get your first look at Marvel’s newest original motion comic (available October 28th on iTunes) as the X-Men embark on a bold new mission!

Call me a traditionalist, but I think I prefer my comics unanimated, flat and lifeless. This just does nothing for me. Why? Because they animate in my mind with a little thing called imagination. Marvel should really try bottling that up to sell on iTunes.
