UPDATE THE THIRD: And thanks again for helping us get weekly 5th!
UPDATE THE 2ND: Thanks for putting us on the front page!
UPDATE: Thanks everyone for giving "Legends" the votes to get Daily First!

Some Legends speak of heroes... and some speak of... these guys.

The carefully laid plans of the "Cult of the Lich" go horribly awry, as the Lord of Death himself is summoned into the world after being trapped in a dark tome for thousands of years. Our two unlikely heroes, the bumbling wizard wanna-be Xiphon, and his height impaired companion Slinks, are exiled to a evil forest and begin their quest to right the wrongs they help caused... or to just get into more trouble.

"Legends of the Black Book - Part 1" is the debut effort by team Toonwerks... made up of three Flash old-timers Casey McDonald ("Xiphon"), Mark Schneider ("th1rt3en"), and Joseph Blanchette ("LegendaryFrog&quot ;). With the goal of delivering original and smart animations, each one of us play to our strengths to give the the best possible experience to the viewer. We hope you enjoy the first part of this multi part series, and urge you to give feedback so we can make improvements in the future!



Rated 4.5 / 5 stars


The story seems promising enough.
The graphics would get a 8 out of 10. Its realy nice, but got some room for improvements.
The animations itself seems to be pretty simple. Not that its a bad thing. Its simple, but effective, giving more time for the project to be done

The voices are sweet, but they don't suits the characters themselves that much. Also it sounds a bit, raspy? (dunno the correct word there, that sounds like having the mic a bit too close, but whatever its realy called, in this ammounts its bearable)

The characters and personalitys is as good as it can be, no need to change anything there

And lastly, the humor is nice.
Some room for improvements there as well, but thats about it, its good as it is.

This for sure got potential, so keep the nice work up all.
I looking forward to see the next part

Decent animation, if it was back in 2007 when JB was making decent animations.

In the days where frame-by-frame is the norm, with more action and movement that doesn't look like it is on hinges... this is just... substandard!

I am glad JB and other guys are coming back, but you really have to step up your game. Your old animation style isn't close to good enough to make it on the tops lists like you used to.

Thankfully the river ate it.

I am enjoying this story. Good pace and jokes and it doesn't get stale.
Joey, nice artwork.
Everyone else, wonderful remarks and adoration.
Good luck.

very promising

i look forward to this series. if you plan on making this series pretty long, id suggest going the route of Unforgotten Realms and w/e he did to make creating the flash series easier. i forgot the term. oh well, as an artist, im sure you know. for all i know, you already are, so ill just shut up now >_>

good episode, i laughed at quite a few areas. specifically most the parts involving the frog. ;)

it wasn't bad, but JB has created and been a part of far better animations than this.
Bonus points for the 'proper tree', in all it's Firth-esque glory.
