I steer away from violent, dehumanizing messes in general. I usually prefer the uplifting worlds of Brad Bird, Michel Gondry, Hayao Miyazaki, and their halcyon ilk.

And yet, I find myself drawn - like a wrestling fan to a car crash - to Superjail.

And this awesome writeup, complete with reference to the ol' Jacmac and Rad Boy, which I haven't even thought about for years. Why they don't mention Gary Panter as an influence, tho, I'll never know.

Make sure you watch the creators' very excellent earlier efforts, Barfight and Space War.

It's ugly and horrible, but still. There's some kinda wizardly pep goin' on there. No? No??
