Looking for “an anti-cop show … on acid?”
How about an irreverent comedy?
Then, “JUSTICE WARRIORS,” a new animated series created by Ben Clarkson -- a Montreal-based animator, artist, and cartoonist -- may be right up your alley.
Imagine this: It’s the year “2XXX” and “Bubble City” is an idyllic place, where there’s no crime, no discrimination, no homeless, no unrest, and no one goes hungry (at least for food). But, alas, outside of that utopian sphere, there’s an underbelly of gross imperfection; an area inhabited by “filthy, twisted mutants.” And to keep the latter at bay, the “Bubble City Police Department” must patrol and safeguard the city’s perimeter.
As Ben proudly notes, this is “an over the top, ultraviolent farce which skewers cop shows, good taste and moral certainty.”
If you’re into sci-fi, weird art, and the work of Dutch director, Paul Verhoeven [RoboCop (1987), Total Recall (1990), Basic Instinct (1992), and Showgirls (1995)], you should definitively check out Ben’s latest endeavor.
For a limited time, in exchange for supporting his crowdfunding campaign, you can choose from a bunch of neat “perks,” which include some original art, having a character, designed by you (or made in your image), to snagging a speaking role in one of the shows.
