Tales of the Black Freighter is a 2009 animated film that was released in conjunction with other films as part of an adaptation of the classic graphic novel Watchmen. Tales of the Black Freighter was a comic book inside the comic book, telling a grim tale of pirates on the open sea. It uses a dramatic and dynamic artistic style for the 2d animation, with strong line work and a fairly limited range of motion. This film is unusual in that the voiceover narration is integral to the plot, explaining the mental state of the main character and adding color to the world around them.
