I'm a big fan of Mike Mignola, like most artists I suppose. His stuff has a power and style to it that just oozes inspiration and innovation. I spotted these screengrabs from the upcoming Sci Fi Channel presentation of the Amazing Screw On Head, one of the coolest little books Mike ever made. The team behind the film did an amazing job capturing his style in animation and I'm really looking forward to this one. Have a look at the screen grabs!

The voice cast alone is incredible, add to that the insane story by Mignola, and the great animation likeness of his work, this is one to keep an eye on.
Here's the info blurb from Comics2Film:
The Continuum has obtained a first look at images from The Amazing Screw-On Head, Sci Fi Channel's animated series based on Mike Mignola's comic book.
The pilot will debut on Thursday, July 27, following the premiere of Stan Lee's Who Wants to Be a Superhero?, but wil the network has that it will use the Internet to get direct viewer feedback on a pilot to help decide whether or not it will go to series.
The pilot wil be show on the network's new broadband channel, SCI FI Pulse (www.scifi.com), starting on Thursday, July 13.
Here's how the network describes the show:

A secret agent working for the U.S. government, Screw-On Head (Giamatti) is a robot that screws his head onto a wide variety of bodies, and battles those who threaten our civilization."
