This is the second of the four "animated comics" on the I Am Legend DVD, taking place in the same universe as the movie. Unlike the first, this has spoken language, and a more conventional story-telling form. This also, greater extent, feels like a moving graphic novel. There are speech bubbles, and the different "scenes" and situations get a look that fits them, with lighting and colors. The pace is spot-on, and this never loses your attention. There is a nice contrast between the dynamic and atmospheric portions of this. Cinematography and editing are marvelous. The music is excellent and spot-on. Sound is generally a strong suit in this. Voice acting is pretty impressive, and everyone is well-cast. The design of this is well-done. In six and a half minutes, there is a good amount of plot. I'm not certain if these are the only things Jada Pinkett Smith has developed, but I say, keep it up. This has stronger violence than the flick, and there is definitely disturbing content as well. If you can live with the fact that this doesn't do that much to share a connection with the motion picture, you may very well enjoy this. I recommend it to any fans, and those who like dark fiction. 7/10
