Godkiller: Walk Among Us -- Based on the comic book writer-director Matt Pizzolo created with illustrator Anna Muckcracker, GODKILLER takes place in a dark-future after economic collapse, after nuclear holy war, and after Earth is colonized by alien races. Tommy and his kid sister Lucy live in an orphanage in one of the few remaining city-states, but Lucy is critically ill and desperately in need of a new heart. Tommy's odyssey to find a new heart for his sister begins when he follows an organ-stealing prostitute named Halfpipe out of the city-state and into the savage borderland known as Outer City. GODKILLER mixes unforgiving brutality, quantum physics, conspiracy theory, and secret history for an iconoclastic hero's journey like none before it.

About the GODKILLER 'illustrated film'
The 'illustrated film' Pizzolo, Muckcracker, and Giberson are creating for the adaptation mixes elements of anime, radio drama, video games, and motion comics. Utilizing the original artwork from the comic book, the 'illustrated film' adds motion animation, visual effects, elaborate sound design, music, and voice-acting performances.

Pizzolo explained "when we decided to make an anime adaptation of the comic book, I couldn't see how a traditional animated approach would do justice to Anna's incredibly lush and detailed illustrations. It made perfect sense to adapt the medium to suit her art, rather than vice versa."

A great motion-comic edition of Godkiller, 11 September 2010
Author: johnanthonymendoza from United States

Apparently "azayzel" has a hard time understanding the concept of a motion comic. Don't be fooled by a review from someone who obviously doesn't have any respect for the original comic that this animation is derived from. Godkiller is beautifully rendered and expertly directed by Brian Giberson in this straight-to-DVD motion comic from comic creator Matt Pizzolo.

Set in a post-apocalyptic future after an economic collapse and an alien invasion, Godkiller revolves around a young orphan named Tommy as he desperately searches for a replacement heart for his young comatose sister. As he leaves the only part of civilization that he knows in hopes of finding a suitable heart, Tommy joins forces with a group of outlaws that help him see past the illusions of his world and find a power within himself that he never thought possible.

Taking Anna Muckcracker's sequential art straight from the comic, adding motion graphics, 3D CGI, sound effects and a well selected cast of voice actors, this movie takes Pizzolo's vision and gives it an entirely new dimension.

Pizzolo originally considered an anime-type adaptation to his comic book, but decided against it in favor of a motion comic animation that would do justice to Anna Muckcracker's wonderfully detailed illustrations. Staying true to the original style and feel of the comic book, Godkiller: Walk Among Us is a great addition to Pizzolo's work. Bursting with loads of visual appeal and the addition of an experienced cast of voice actors, Pizzolo's motion comic will draw you in to it's grimy, surreal wasteland and leave you wanting more. This, my friends, is how the comic should be experienced.
