Thanks, glad you liked it, BestBuy.

As far as your suggestion, I agree. If I owned and published a comic title, I'd animate previews for the book, using ONLY the artwork appearing within the book. As much as I appreciate a good animation, I don't think there's a market for "motion comics," but I do believe in the marketability of animated previews.

Could you imagine subscribing to your favorite book and a month before the next issue hit the stands, you received a 15-30 second, animated preview on your iPhone or computer? I think that would spread and become viral just as quickly as something like...a YouTube video about dancing cats, (nothing against singing cats, mind you). When I win the lottery and launch my own comic titles, I'll advertise them by animating previews across iPhones, Kindels, computers, etc.

I would suggest that you try to contact DC and pitch the idea of doing animated ads for their website. Tell them the first one is free and then set a reasonable rate for future ads based on how much of your time it takes to do them.
 
There's a Flash section here? Where is it? ;-)

Thanks Heater and MoMoney! I do appreciate the suggestion and support. It would be awesome to do animated advertisements on a regular basis for a comic company. Being a comic book reader since age 12, a fairly "decent" freehand artist (yes, MoMoney, I draw Starwing and cast myself) and self taught Flash animator, developing animations from comic art as a paying profession would be just too-good-to-be-true, as it would merge each of my passions into one artistic medium.

We shall see. Perhaps one of these days I'll be fortunate enough to break into such a business.
