Broken Saints – Chapter 1 – “Introitus”

Broken Saints is an award-winning, partially Flash-animated film series by Brooke Burgess, Ian Kirby, and Andrew West. First published in 2001, it is one of the earliest examples of a motion comic.

Centered on philosophical, religious, political and spiritual themes, it tells the story of four strangers from “the quiet corners of the globe” connected by a vision they all receive of a coming evil. Their search for the truth behind the vision leads them to each other and to far larger and more disturbing truths than they could have expected.

    I had the pleasure of sharing a booth with Brooke Burgess in 2005 at Megacon. Was a really whacked out weekend for all involved.

    Great series, if you’ve not explored it already.

    Oh cool, I remember this series. It’s good stuff. I didn’t realize you could still watch it free online after they made it into a DVD box set.

    I owned the DVD set, but had to give it up for a move. I am pleased they can still be watched for free online.

    Sync time! I was wondering about an online animated series I watched years ago after the “Light Years Away” post but I couldn’t remember the name – thanks for posting!
