This is nothing less than awe-inspiring. Utterly brilliant.
I like them a lot and posted your link in places for other people to see.
Thanks for using a link, instead of just "taking" 'em. :)
These are wonderful.
These are fantastic! Love Tony Stark with the DTs!Thanks to Richard B for pointing me in your direction.
Brilliant and beautiful! Some of the best gifs I've ever seen!
These are FANTASTIC!
More terrific stuff from your unusual brainpan. Love these!
They all remind me of the original Marvel animated cartoons from the late 1960's. I can "hear" John Vernon's voice right now coming from Tony Stark's mouth...
Amazing work as always.
How did you do these, Kerry? --arlen schumerwww.arlenschumer.com
Thanks for the nice comments, everyone!Arlen, I did them all in Photoshop. There's an animation feature that lets you create GIFs. Of course it takes cutting the image apart into layers, then doing some retouching/drawing.
Very cool. But that Spiderman one is really freaking me out with all that water pouring in and in and in...
amazing stark alcholic sh*t
Amazing! Good job!I like your blog, very cool.
These are great! more more more! :-)Thanks for doing!!
Love them. Love to see X-men cover animated. Sharing with link.
Those kick ass, Kerry! Love the Iron man one! HA!
BRILLIANT! sharing link...
Incredible! I must share your link! MORE! lots More!
SUCH a great idea, dude! Awesome! Bravo! More!
Dave sez,(O_O)I will now spend the afternoon staring slack-jawed and drooling at the monitor - Aaaaaaaannnnnnnnnd - go:
The Iron Man seems accidentally goofy. But the others are TRULY awesome!
I love them too i would have to agree iron man does look goofy kinda a bobble head thing going on ha. I was expecting the water pour down his face the drink flowing off the table and maybe just a little shake
Whatta blast! Super fun. Please do as many of these as you're inspired to do!Regarding using a link vs. taking, I use a Web hosting service for my blog, and I prefer that somebody take the files they want. I could edit the .htaccess file to prevent hotlinking, but I don't.
I like most of these, though I think the shakes on the IRON MAN cover are a little over-pronounced. If he were moving a little slower and/or not moving around so far off center; the way he's moving now I expect him to reveal he's Barry Allen going undercover at Stark Industries...
You have to do the Incredible Hulk #1 with him transforming from Banner to Hulk! That'd look beautiful! Great, great work!
For the record, I wanted the Iron Man cover to be a little goofy. It's the reason it's last, as the "punchline". You see three cool covers and then a silly one.I tried versions where he's rolling his eyes and sweat moves down his face, but the areas were so small, it didn't really work. I think the "shakes" are slower (less funny) on the internet than my computer, but whadaya gonna do?
It looks to me from the comments that your Funnies have gone pretty close to viral.
Viral indeed! I just saw the link on my Facebook page. SOOOOO neat!!!!
WOW, troppo carine queste copertine animate. grazie ---- WOW, too cute these animated covers. Thank you
Very cool!I posted in my blog (brazilian) and linked you
These are great. Good job, sir!
we want others!
I love this comic covers. Thanks for sharing them.
So Cool...i try to do take a look:http://photoshopper-gennarospo.blogspot.com/2011/12/photoshop-gif-animate-di-copertine-di_01.htmlhttp://photoshopper-gennarospo.blogspot.com/2011/12/photoshop-gif-animate-di-copertine-di.html
followed this to acme comics in greensboro nc. Great work! more please!
great work! enjoyed it a lot!
Dud. this is ridiculously cool!
This is amazing. With a lot of comics going digital these days, it would be great to see cover animations like this actually make it into future production of comics.
Kerry, Absolutely amazing! Don't be surprised if publishers start doing this on their digital editions.BTW, thanks again for allowing your "Super Antics" to run in Hearing Loss Magazine. Hopefully you liked the issue and my article.Michael Eury
Bravo! I just joined your page, and I'm gonna leave a link on a message board I moderate! :)Great work!
Can you animate the first page of Fantastic Four #51 "This Man, This Monster" with the Thing standing glumly in the rain?
You're gonna have to do some fast talking to justify that "I'm not an animator" comment.
My flabber is quite gasted....
Wonderful job and great fun!
So the question now is: When can we see more?
When looking at the axis of the wheel on the "wheel of misfortune" cover, it looks like the wheel was spinning in the opposite direction. nice illusion.
wow - this really WORKS!
Great job! I posted a Facebook link to here. I am most transfixed by the Spidey.
I long for the day when every comic cover is animated like these. Fantastic work! I've shared a link via Facebook and Twitter, so that others can enjoy also.
Awesome! I especially love the Dark Knight Returns. Tweeted! :)
Hey Kerry, came here because of a couple of links to your animations people posted in Facebook. Great stuff, and after looking at only the last few entries, realized this was one blog I would HAVE to follow. Looking forward to looking back through your older postings for a while!
Please keep doing these!
These are incredible, great job on an original idea! Can't wait to see more!
You've caught lightning in a bottle with this one! This is fantastic. I'm all of a sudden imagining what all the classic covers would look like animated. Action #1, Batman #1 spring immediately to mind. The really cool creepy ones would be EC Comics!
I can't pick a favorite one, they're all so GREAT!!Thanks,TommyBATMAN FAN?http://www.bat-blog.com
Very cool. Thanks for sharing!
Wow! Love these.
Well done. These are fantastic!
Everyone who likes Kerry's animated covers should buy his Halo and Sprocket books. They're every bit as brilliant as what you see on his blog.
Very very cool. Looki g forward to more!
Absolutely love it! Super work!!!
Now show the Justice League vomiting.
wow, this actually is giving me the urge to read those comics. thanks for the inspiration, you have just started something, btw.
Gotta say that I am totally impressed. Sure, it isn't a huge technically challenging concept, really, but just the idea of doing it, along with very good execution of the task makes these absolutely incredible. Great job!(And don't get me wrong. When I say it wasn't all that technically challenging, I'm not being insulting. I couldn't do anything even remotely as good.)
These are amazing! I am posting this directly to our blog. www.thenerdpocalypse.com. We have a weekly podcast with free episodes. Check it out if you get a chance.
Saw a link to your Animated Comic covers from FaceBook. Great job!
Simply brilliant. Really nice work
I can only repeat what already has been said many time in the comments: i think it is brilliant idea and worked out very good! You make my day!
Kerry, is there anyway you can give a short tutorial on how you did the spiderman cover? I would really love to learn how to do something like this!
These are simply amazing. The Spider-Man one was my personal favorite. Did you have to recreate much of the art in the non moving portions of these pieces or was it just meticulous cutting?
Welp, these put to shame the ones I did a few years ago.My hat's off to you. Keep up the excellent work.
More please !excelent !
Ha these are excellent, I really like the Spidey one, great stuff, very cool.
Awesome stuff! Nicely 'shopped!
Definitely add a tutorial when you get a chance. I would love to see how you separated and modified the elements.
these are brilliant! well done! I tweeted the hell out of your blog link this morning! I am unshamed of this.
Thank you so much for doing these - they are incredible what a brilliant idea.Simple and brilliant.
Absolutely exquisite! I posted the link in a few places.You need to make more of these!
hey, cool, thank you very much for sharing!!
WOW , they are amazing and so cool! you have talent :) and look, you are kind of famous XD http://twitter.com/cameronMstewart in december 2.Clau
Very inspiring. Can you imagine if HQs used those on tablets? Congrats!
Comic vine led me over here to your great animated covers.http://www.comicvine.com/news/awesome-art-picks-batman-judge-dredd-catwoman-and-more/143927/
sharing on Google+. great work!
Reposted your Iron Man gif over at http://discoveringalcoholic.com/alcoholism/iron-mans-dts
very cool indeed. hope you do more of them.
Completely awesome. I wish I had the skill to do more!
These are fantastic. I passed them on and loads of people loved it. I hope the extra traffic inspires you to make more!
They all look so amazing!fantastic work^^
Proof that created animated gifs should be considered as an art. Beautiful and creative stuff!
WORD! LOVE the JLA one!
Utterly Brilliant! Ive got to re-post/link this! Will you do any more?
Really amazing work!With the rise of digital comics, this actually may become a new way to do covers. You are on the cutting edge.
Awesome. Especially the Tony Stark DTs
agreed, awesome stuff. Minus the oddness of the masturbating Tony Stark, though it still pretty enjoyable. Say you're doing more.
Snorted at the Iron Man one. The Final Chapter of Spider-Man is quite good!
As others have already commented, no doubt this is probably how some hybrid comics will look like soon enough.Kudos
Super cool, especially Spiderman!
This is so Cool! nice Job!
That Iron Man cover is fab! makes me want to see EC's SHOCK SuspenStories 12 (The junkie one)
Wooow, these covers are really amazing and beautiful, I love !!!
I liked them all..amazing!!Webster
I want more! Nice job :D
Whoa. If you switch your brain around the Justice League cover can spin in either direction.
My hat's off, Kerry. May I suggest Avengers #276? I've been writing about that run and its themes over on integr8dfix.blogspot.com. I believe I've seen "The Final Chapter!" converted into an avatar on IMWAN; now I know from whence it came! I've visited your blog many times-- I recognize your robot (and now, your name)!
Those are amazing comic covers. How did you do that?
Nice work, Kerry. I just saw these made it on Mental Floss:http://www.mentalfloss.com/blogs/archives/109529#more-109529
Kerry --Awesome. I nearly did a spit take when I saw the Iron Man cover. Brilliant!
Very cool! Perfect *---*More, please!!!
I must add my compliments. These covers are fantastic, and you underestimate your talent as an animator. I certainly would not mind seeing more of these. ;)
These are great, would love to see more.How did you make them?
hope it gets the recognition it deserves. Definitely very inspiring work...Hope you don't mind that I posted at my blog...http://www.socomic.grIf so I will remove it..Again hats off!
So very COOL!!!!!!
Kerry, I like what you've done so much I had to write an article about it in my blog, and I definitely linked back to yours. In my little write-up I showed three other covers that I feel lend themselves to this treatment and my daughter tells me she is going to tackle one of them herself. To be continued! The Hayfamzone Blog is over at www.hayfamzone.com
Huge, gigantic flaw ! Only four ???Please, provide more.Thanks,Human Race.
All truly excellent. But those saying the Stark animated nightmare withdrawal cover is goofy or silly obviously have no clue. That cover captures the nigh indescribable, surreal hell one has to pass through should one be so ill-fated. It may seem exaggerated but everything is exaggerated in that carnival of horror. It's pretty spot on.
I think that the DK one would look better if the jump motion was slower, perhaps even the lightning itself could last longer. Not necessarily "slow motion" though, albeit it could be cool to, but much harder to do.Cool and funny overall.
que bueno, ha veces resulta increible todo lo que podemos hacer sobre lo ya hecho, La verdad es que se disfruta mucho de algo tan cerca ha todos. gracias por tu arte
These are just brilliant - i will twitter your page and post some links to it. Great stuff!
I was watching ep 3 of Comic Book Men and the Justice League #6 made a cameo about 5 minutes in. Thought immediately of your blog.
Very cool! More please !!
I absolutely love these! Do you plan on doing anymore?
Maybe. I love doing them, but I have so many others things I also want to try...
Love your art and blog-- great work!
