Kaz's Underworld, animated.

Here, check out some other animations from The Comic Book Factory.

Oy, 1980s, right? Village Voice, right? Or was it the 1990s and the New York Press?

I'm glad to be shot of these minium-concept, minimum-drawing weekly adrag comix.

Wait, we're not shot of them. Shit.

I admire that they pressed on to learn how to animate the comic strip in spite of having virtually no good material to do it with.

"Damned Kids" made me laugh, but the others are all missing something. They look great, though.

Thank you, thank you, thank you. I don't what to think of people who don't get Kaz. I guess I'd have to say that they're humour-defective dorks.

I love Underworld, but animation and comics have different feelings--a good animation doesn't always make a good comic book/strip, and vice versa. In this case, the drawings in the toon are great, it's fun to see the characters in motion, but it seems like they're missing the comedic timing that's present in the original strip. In my brain, an Underworld strip happens in like 5 seconds. These animations seem more drawn out and therefore deflated.

Thanks for the post, though. I do love me some funny dumb comix.

Hey, I didn't know that Kaz worked on SpongeBob Squarepants! I love how Nickelodeon doesn't seem to care what sort of depravity you're up to on your own time. A little digging turned up this interview from 2001 where he says he was hired based on Underworld alone.

I think it goes beyond that - I imagine they were looking for the next Ren & Stimpy.

I think that's my problem with it too. I kept expecting there to be more, but left as a static strip, it's perfect. I love Kaz's style, though.
