  6. The Last Sin of Mark Grimm Chapters 1-3 (12:22)

    Mark Grimm hunts for his kidnapped wife. The search leads him in the underworld both physically and metaphysically in this Neo-Noir Mythological mash-up.

    I wrote, directed, edited, and animated The Last Sin of Mark Grimm 1-3 based on the comic book of the same name that I created with the help of the talented illustrator Chris Moreno.

    Published by Silent Devil comics in 2006-2007, this animated version of the comic was commissioned by (now and appeared there for ten years. Sadly that partnership is now over and appears here exclusively.

    This compilation of three chapters represents the first volume of The Last Sin of Mark Grimm that was published as part of a four issue mini-series. Sadly we never got to animate the rest of the series, please view this short as a demonstration of my work and as an introduction to The Last Sin of Mark Grimm comic.

    Special thanks to and
