Enter the world of Elizabeth Grey in issue 1.1 of Redemption: The Challenge, "The Seraphim Stone"

With more and more ways to enjoy your favourite comics digitally, it was only a matter of time before a more cinematic viewing experience arrived.

Developed by London-based feature film company, Eden Films, and its animation/game division, Codec Studios, Redemption: The Challenge is pitched as a next generation motion comic.

Without the confinements of the traditional comic format (panels, speech bubbles, etc) Eden has created a 2D animation with high quality parallaxing graphics, narration and a full orchestra score.

Written by David Burns, the artwork is provided by Ralph Mohr (ex head of Concept Design for Disney Games) and sound design by Nathan McCree (composer of the Tomb Raider score).

Redemption: The Challenge incorporates DAz technology to make it a cross over genre of entertainment and the world's first interactive motion comic.
