OBSCURE O.V.A.S, *The Amazing Screw-On Head
Originally a one-shot comic from Dark Horse Comics by Hellboy creator Mike Mignola, Syfy decided to do a TV pilot of it. This has been released officially online, as well as on DVD.
Set in the Civil War, Screw-On Head is a mechanical head that works for Abe Lincoln as a sort of Agent Mulder who hunts down supernatural threats against America. He has to fight the charasmiatic Emperor Zombie from resurrecting an ancient demi-god.
Aside from the robot bodies that Head rides around in, other cool steam-tech includes a chamber that converts people into smoke. Titsmouse’s animation greatly follows Mignola’s art style, even more than the Hellboy animated movies did.
