AMAZING SCREW-ON HEAD!
FILE UNDER COMICS/ILLUSTRATION/ANIMATION:
I can't figure out if this is a one-shot or a series, but Sci-Fi has the entire pilot (20 minutes!) for 'The Amazing Screw-On Head' up on their site .
Created in part by Hellboy artist Mike Mignola, Amazing Screw-On Head is a headless (duh) robot/person who is Abraham Lincoln's top spy but never made it into the history books. He is called in to investigate a kidnapping at the hands of Emperor Zombie and everything else falls into place I guess you could say. I don't think Mignola's illustration style transfers over to animation smoothly but the story is pretty good with some odd amount of funny injected into it.
Voice talent by Paul Giamatti, Molly Shannon and David Hyde Pierce (I think). It all wraps up with Lincoln signing the Homestead Act to appear as if we are interested in Western migration but is truly the cover for Amazing Screw-On Heads adventures into the West!
It says on the bottom of the site 'August 20th at Midnight' so maybe that is when the series starts...?
