Wait, so they're literally just running old Gargoyles episodes through VLC, clicking "grab screenshot" and then photoshopping speech bubbles onto it? For $29.99? What the actual fuck?
>>
>It's a comic adaptation of the animated series. Time to make a new generation aware, because reasons.

Please don't play with my heart.

But also, why couldn't they have just re-released the SLG comics like they did with the Darkwing Duck collection?

Of course they didn't care how bad it looked. Just call it 'manga' and kids will buy it, right? Fuck's sake. These assholes sold 'manga ringtones' off their shitty Tokyopop social media MySpace wannabe website.

It's not Marvel specifically. It's a Disney thing.
They've done the same for Gravity Falls recently, and I recall the same for the High School Musical movies.

>>78707916
It's kind of funny to think of this as some sort of post-modernist take on the comic-book medium, and Jango Fett is blasting at Obi Wan from behind a portal.

>>78708220
Jabba? No, that's just how shit he looked back in 1997.
They have never updated the Jabba model since its original inclusion into the Special Edition.

At least with more story book formats it works better, even if they add some word bubbles in illustrations.

Of course this non-Tokyopop one has original illustrations from an actual comic artist.

Oh yeah. I just meant it's the shit of the special edition on top of having it in his 'Cine-manga' format.

Then again, the story is that George Lucas is so petty about the Special Editions of the Star Wars films that he offered the 1997 Special Edition to the Library of Congress for archival when they asked for the original theatrical edition.

So it's no real surprise, I suppose.

Just think that Tokyopop must've paid a king's ransom in licensing and/or revenue-sharing to Disney to just crap out a series of slideshow stills.

Each one probably is done mostly by a single person over strict short deadlines to minimize cost.

Given that they credit one person with "Graphic Designer and Letterer" and even "Cover Design" on this one book... that seems to be pretty much exactly what they did. Plus two editors dedicated to this one book and the rest seems o be general line and company editors.

I can get why they're doing it. The Frozen Cinestory actually sold decently, so it they wanted new kids to discover the franchise, it could work.

>>78710466
I think the first word of "Frozen Cinestory" was probably the determinate factor in its commercial success rather than the latter one.

These are done with so little care or effort on behalf of the publisher that it is hard to see how one can act as an efficient gateway to the rest of the franchise for new fans.
