Classic Comic Book Covers Get GIF’d
By Anthea Quay, 02 Dec 2011
Illustrator Kerry Callen turned iconic comic book covers into animated GIFs.
Callen injected movement into comic book covers of ‘The Amazing Spiderman: The Final Chapter’, ‘Batman: The Dark Knight Returns’, ‘Iron Man: Demon in a Bottle’, and ‘Justice League America: The Wheel of Misfortune’.
“I wanted to find covers that would ‘loop’ as an animated image,” Callen told Wired.com.
“Secondly, I wanted variety. I chose one with a flowing motion, one with flashes of light, and one that spins. Each is basically a different exercise in execution.”
To create these GIFs, Callen “used Photoshop to cut the images apart, and redraw areas as needed, then animated them”, he said.
