GI Joe Resolute

My mind is a buzz. I have just completed watching the eleven webisodes that comprise this most excellent take on the struggle between good and evil. Before you just brush this off as some latent eleven year old type shit, I assure you this is worth your time.

These cartoons appeared on Adult Swim whose track record includes W2 favorites, The Brak Show, Sea Lab 2021, and Aqua Teen Hunger Force. I will take it one step further. The writing credits go to British comic-writer-blogger-pervert-legend Warren Ellis. He has penned the stellar Fell, Transmetropolitan, Global Frequency, and Planetary. We are talking some proper dystopian, covert-ops, neo-noir, roc em soc em goodness.

Check episode 8. An epic showdown between Storm Shadow and Snack Eyes. Kill Bill cool.



In other news, NBA draft begins at 7pm est. You know your hoops geek pals at APT will be coolin' in checked leisure suits just hoping there names get called. I think I am going to the Tropics.

This reminds me of an old GI Joe comic Roomie had back in the day. There was no dialogue in the whole thing. Just an epic showdown between these two masters.
