DVD NEWS: Marvel Knights Animation: Ultimate Wolverine Vs Hulk Announced

Shout! Factory have announced that Marvel Knights Animation: Ultimate Wolverine Vs Hulk — a motion comic adaptation of the comic series by Lost co-creator and Star Trek movie writer Damon Lindelof, and drawn by Secret Invasion artist Leinil Francis Yu — will be released on DVD on September 10.

In Ultimate Wolverine Vs. Hulk, the not-so-jolly green giant is presumed dead, but S.H.I.E.L.D. head honcho Nick Fury knows better. When stories of a big green man being to surface, Fury decides to clean up his mess by sending Wolverine to kill The Hulk.

Unlike most motion comic adaptations, the one’s Shout! Factory and Marvel Knights have done aren’t just static comic book pages with moving text bubbles, but actually have a lot more motion, which puts them about mid-way between a normal motion comic and a fully-animated cartoon.

Along with the adaptation of the original six issue miniseries, the DVD also includes an interview with Yu and Marvel Knights Animation’s Supervising Producer Kalia Cheng about the making of this ’toon.

Marvel Knights Animation: Ultimate Wolverine Vs Hulk is currently available for preoder from Amazon for $12.93.
