Increase the peace.


2000AD ABC Warriors from Firestep Films on Vimeo.
The only problems with this are: I don't want it to stop; I want to see more Joey Pineapples; and I kinda want Clint Eastwood by the Gorillaz to start when Mongrol makes that big jump out towards the foreground. "I ain't happy, I'm feeling glad. I got sunshine, in a bag. I'm useless, but not for long. The future is coming on ...".

This looks real nice! Where are these characters coming from?

Mark said...

Theyre the ABC Warriors, a long-running strip from 2000AD, written by Pat Mills. Some of the greatest artists 2000AD has ever nurtured have worked on it: Kev ONeill, Brendan McCarthy, Mick McMahon, Dave Gibbons, Carlos Ezquerra, Steve Dillon, Simon Bisley, Kev Walker, Henry Flint, Liam Sharp, Clint Langley...

This animation looks to be based heavily on the Kev Walker era.

Dont know that much about it, but Rebellions logo is on there - try giving Tharg an email, see if hell give you a straight answer (he certainly doesnt respond to my constant "whens Shaky Kane going to work for 2000AD again" emails, the green fink).
