A Fistful of Bananas?

Look, there’s really no way we can explain it better: “Welcome to ‘the Blister’ — a bizarre other-world colonized by humans sometime in the 22nd century, which quickly became a hotly-contested source of fertile land and natural resources long ago exhausted on Earth. In this new frontier, a rogue gunslinger and his companion wander across a wilderness in the grips of a civil war, encountering lawlessness, natives, and perversions of civilization in a world at the crossroads between the past and the future. The fact that said gunslinger is a bio-surgically modified silverback gorilla toting a pair of enormous revolvers is neither here nor there.” That’s the story of Six Gun Gorilla from Boom! Studios, coming this June. It’s written by Simon Spurrier (X-Men: Legacy) with interior art by Jeff Stokely (Fraggle Rock, The Reason for Dragons) and featuring a cover by Eisner Award-winning artist Ramón Pérez (see below). The story behind the comic is even more interesting: It’s based on an obscure 1930′s comic which no one seems to know the source of. Major Spoiler’s write-up might make it all easier to follow. Or not.

Video: 'PigGoatBananaMantis!' -- with pickles?

Your rating: None Average: 3.7 (3 votes)

The Cartoon Brew website posts this 2:53 minute TV pilot for “PigGoatBananaMantis!”, by Dave Cooper, Johnny Ryan (artists), and Nick Cross (animator).

Cartoon Brewmeister Amid Amidi describes it as “wacky”. It is also very anthropomorphic. Watch out for those gravity pickles!
