Episode 1, Part 1


Episode 1, Part 2


Episode 1, Part 3



Gametap has launched a new original animated series, “Re\Visioned,” for GameTap TV. The series, which “explores and re-imagines well known video game franchises,” will begin its inaugural season by featuring interpretations of Lara Croft by “well-known animators, comic book artists and writers.”

Among those enlisted to contribute to the effort were Peter Chung, Jim Lee, Warren Ellis, Cully Hamner, Gail Simone, David Alvarez, Michael Stackpole, Brian Pulido, and Christos Gage. The first episode will be released for free on July 10 on the Gametap website, with new episodes, 10 in all, running through August 23.

Tomb Raider Revisioned at Comic Con

At this year's San Diego Comic Con, Gametap is hosting a Tomb Raider Revisioned panel with me and some of the other contributors to the series. Sat July 28 at 4 pm.

I'm also doing a signing at the Gametap booth from 2 pm Saturday.

I look forward to seeing you.

Re: Tomb Raider Revisioned at Comic Con

It was wonderful seeing you and your wife at Comic Con. I'll be posting a few pictures of the event in this community. Hope you're fine with the fact that I "friended" you.

If you enjoy the episodes,

Please also go to

and click on the episode viewer there.

Wait for the episodes to load entirely before playing to avoid choppy playback.

Gametap sponsored and distributed these shorts.

Hi-Res???

Peter is there any way you could distribute high quality versions of these AMAZING episodes. I hate how online streaming algorithms destroy animation in particular.

Or if you could cut a deal to sell them in iTunes or something... I love your work, and am forever in your gratitude for AEon.

Max

PS. This is the best thing I've seen since Flux

Re: Hi-Res???

Thanks. I wanted to try out producing animation for the web, partly to see if it would be a good venue for launching new Aeon Flux shorts. The result is, as you say, not ideal for appreciating animation.

The right to distribute the episodes is retained by Gametap. They've told me they intend to release the entire series on dvd for their subscribers.
Meanwhile, the best quality available for viewing online seems to be here:
