Enlisted in President Abraham Lincoln's secret service, the amazing agent Screw-On Head is the bravest and most dedicated operative, even though at first glance, he is nothing more than a disembodied mechanical head. However, with the exotic ability to screw itself onto a wide variety of robotic bodies, the Head is eager to accept missions his human colleagues don't even dare to pursue. Along with his faithful valet, Mr Groin, Screw-On Head goes on a mission to save America against the ghastly Emperor Zombie and his evil plan to unleash an ancient Demigod on earth. Can the mechanical super-spy foil the megalomaniac's schemes?Written by
The real Homestead Act signed by Lincoln that features at the end of the pilot episode was used as a political maneuver to expand and develop the nation on the western region of the United States. See more »
MTV showed potential with "Liquid Television" a few years ago (But never realized that potential). David Lynch proved that weirdness could survive at least one season with "Twin Peaks" and now finally animation AND storyline that truly raises the bar. Sure HBO had Spawn and it was edgy but this is the cream.... I would love to see more episodes of course (Mignolia is the new Kirby). What would be really nice is to see this on the big screen, Say before "Hellboy II", Sci-Fi could use this as a great advertising vehicle.
One can only hope that this will lead the vanguard for more interesting projects in animation. I can only dream of a world where "Flaming Carrot" and "The Sandman" are animated fare. Something like "The Invisibles" ,"Preacher" or even the easily contemporary "Transmetropolitan" with Spider Jerusalem tapping away at his powerbook and creating havoc.Sorry, I strayed far....This Mignolia work is amazing and until I can get cable in the alternate universe this will whet my fanboy appetite.
