Reckless Life Animatic Available at Clickwheel

Clickwheel, the first and only site for downloading comics for iPods, has unveiled a new feature, Clickwheel Animatics. This service offers comics stitched together in quicktime for viewing on iPod videos, but they will play on any desktop as well.

The launch piece for this service is part 1 of Reckless Life: Locke and the Las Vegas Ninjas.

Here's what Clickwheel has to say about it:

After a hard day of breaking the law or breaking out of prison, Locke doesn't want anything more than to veg on the couch and watch some cartoons. But when his favorite anime store is attacked by the Las Vegas Ninjas, Locke is charged with retrieving the stolen ancient chopsticks of General Tso -- or be cut off from his cartoons. With such a heavy ultimatum on the line, Locke crashes the Rising Sun Casino only to be confronted with ninjas. Lots and lots of ninjas. You may have read Tim Demeter's action-packed Reckless Life on the Web or on the iPod, but you'll never look at it the same way again after you see Phil Kahn's Quicktime treatment. It is a thing of beauty... and quickness.

Watch for more Animatics in the coming weeks, both here and elsewhere. The movie is free to download and view, and is the equivalent in length of a monthly printed comic.

Thanks, Tim

Thank you Seth.

I really love the Samurai Jack feel this treatment gives my stuff. I'll be utilizing Phil's services more, he deserves a lot of the credit for the quality of the piece.

I've always thought Tim's artwork would look phenominal if it was animated. I can't wait to check this out. Congratulations Tim!!
