December 23, 2015

Check out these teasers for upcoming Anime series ‘Cannon Busters’ – the brainchild of visual artist LeSean Thomas (known for his work on cartoons such as ‘The Boondocks’, ‘Black Dynamite’, and ‘Avatar: The Last Airbender’). ‘Cannon Busters’ is an adventure comedy series based on a comic that Thomas illustrated in 2005, which he developed while working in South Korea as an animation production/storyboard artist. Regarding the plot of the Hip Hop influenced series (that was funded by Kickstarter), the LA based artist says: “It follows the adventures and exploits of S.A.M, a high-end, royal-class friendship droid who’s joined by a quirky, discarded maintenance robot and a brash, deadly fugitive. Together, the unlikely trio embarks on an unforgettable journey in a fantastic and dangerous world in search of S.A.M’s best friend, the heir to a powerful kingdom under siege.” Watch the teasers below.
