Well that looks bloody fantastic!
Is it too much to hope that this will be more than a proof of concept?

Yeah not too shabby. Wonder if our own Happy Grennie and Tiernen Trevallion (or Dom Reardon as I guess he's Absalom's co-creator) have had any input / thoughts on this?

Loved it - wonder where the are going with this though? Is it just a toe in the water or have they committed to something longer term?

Toe in the water, judging by the Twitter feed.

Enjoyed that. Hoping for more. The Ch4 logo at the end suggests more. I hope they get some made before the government shuts the channel down!

Over on FB, Gordon's delight at having got Melvyn Hayes to say "wank mitten" was detectable from orbit.

The sheer fact that it actually is Melvyn Hayes playing the part fills me with joy!
A genuinely inspired bit of casting, in an unexpected and brilliantly realised bit of animation.

I loved this to bits, and truly hope it gets the full-on series it deserves.

Yup.
Enjoyed that. More please.
An old-school, no-bullshit, boys-own action/adventure comic reminiscent of the 2000ads and Eagles and Warlords and Battles and other glorious black-and-white comics that were so, so cool in the 70's and 80's - Buy the hardback Christmas Annual!
