I remember Jimmy Palmiotti talking about this when he was on the Comics on Comics panel at the Long Beach Comic Con. See, he, Amanda Conner and Garth Ennis put out a one-shot called THE PRO at Image in ’02 that people are still talking about it. It was about a filthy, foul-mouthed hooker who suddenly gains super-powers and gets recruited by a thinly-veiled parody of the Justice League. To put it mildly, her membership with this team doesn’t work out well.
Anyway, I remember Jimmy saying at the panel that there was a cartoon based on the comic that was in development at one point. He couldn’t show it at the time, because of legal reasons, but he really, really wished he could because he was so pleased with how it turned out. Apparently, whatever barrier that was blocking him before has been lifted and he’s gotten to post the demo reel of the cartoon on his Youtube channel (and thanks to Bleeding Cool for the heads up.)

Wow… they didn’t pull a single punch for this. I’d like to know who the voice actors were, because this cast totally got the kind of delivery they needed for the material. And Titmouse made this! Kick ass! I’ve been to their studios a bunch of times for the monthly Comic Book Sunday! event. They’ve produced lots of other rad , adult-oriented cartoons like METALOCALYPSE and GI JOE RESOLUTE.
Man, this series probably would’ve been too intense, even for Adult Swim. Would you maniacs like to this series to get picked up? Or maybe even see another Ennis comic like THE BOYS get this kind of treatment?
