When Marvel Knights first appeared I jumped on board. Let's see just how good the animation is... regardless will probably jump on board. Anytime Marvel can market itself properly is a win for the comic fan.Foster for Frost Giant and Van Dyne for Valkyrie in 2010!

Sweet. So these'll be direct adaptations? I hope so. Also intrested to see if they make it a point to match the animation to the comics art style... that'd be cool (i.e. like the animated sequence in Kick-Ass looked like JRJR's art moving. That was cool).
