      comics-based
      > DVDs. He said fans had been drawn to the monitor, as they walked past
      > CrossGen's booth, when the company introduced the DVDs based on Meridian,
      > Scion, Way of the Rat, Negation, and Sojourn.
      > >
      > > Starting in September, DVD versions of the comic-book series will
      feature
      > the first six issues of each - except for Meridian, which will feature the
      > first seven - for $9.99 each.

      > > Mark Stanley, vice president of marketing for Intec Interactive, the
      > company producing the DVDs, said, "The comics are broken down,
      page-by-page
      > and panel-by-panel, so that they can be filmed as if they were animatics
      or
      > storyboards for a film, complete with motion, voice tracks, digital sound
      > effects, and music. They play off the DVD just like a movie and - just
      like
      > other DVDs - they will be loaded with extras and special features."
      > >
      > > Besides conventional DVD players, the DVDs will also be playable on the
      > PC, Macintosh, Playstation 2, and DVD-equipped Xbox hardware.
      > >
      > > Rosemann said, "Visitors to the CrossGen booth at San Diego seemed to be
      > pleasantly surprised when they saw the DVDs with their own eyes. Those who
      > were new to comics liked how they possessed a cartoon-like quality, while
      > veteran readers admired how the key aspects of comics (panels, word
      > balloons, etc.) were maintained, not to mention such extras as 'How to
      Make
      > a Comic Book.' "
