Audio: 'Watchmen' artist Dave Gibbons talks movies, Martha Washington

Crave recently spoke with comic book artist Dave Gibbons about the Watchmen motion comic, the upcoming Watchmen movie, and why he was able to draw a perfect Martha Washington.

No, this is not a pic of Dave Gibbons doing what he does best. Or is it? Warner Premiere

Readers of Crave and fans of all things geek may have read my impressions of the Watchmen Motion Comics over the last few months. If not, well first off, shame on you, but through the magical powers I wield--and the Internets--you can check them out here and here .

Produced by Warner Premiere, the Watchmen Motion Comic is basically the original Watchmen comic, now animated with voice, music, and sound effects. If you're a comic book fan or you're just intrigued by Watchmen thanks to the upcoming movie's hype, it's worth checking out. If you don't fall into either of the aforementioned categories, check it out anyway.

The comic, which can be seen on iTunes, uses the original Dave Gibbons art from Watchmen to tell the story in a unique way. I recently got the chance to speak with Gibbons, who told me what he thinks about the motion comic and the Watchmen movie, and why he was able to draw a perfect Martha Washington.

Gibbons was calling from oversees, so please forgive the interference, which gets better as the interview progresses. I tried to pump the volume up, so my voice may be louder than his.
