The criminally overlooked work of independent Canadian animator Myles Langlois
has my vote for best thing on the internet right now. Specifically Apollo Gauntlet
, the tale of a lone hero prone to quips and violence wandering an (imaginary?) wasteland in search of Dr Benign so he can return to Earth, and Superspace
, the saga of two mounties, a woman and her son, a criminal, a pilot, a robot and a bald guy who find themselves trapped aboard an alien spaceship.
The low-rent production style, like highschool binder doodles come to life, and hazy Sifl and Olly-style humour might take a little getting used to, but it's all part of the charm.
Here is a teaser
, a trailer
, and a 1992 Sales Presentation
for Apollo Gauntlet. [more inside]
