The Amazing Screw-On Head

The Amazing Screw-On Head is an award-winning graphic novel by Mike Mignola, the guy who brought us, among other things, some Hellboy books.

Comics Continuum is reporting that SciFi Channel is producing an animated version of The Amazing Screw-On Head tentatively slated to air July 27th. Voice work is provided by Paul Giamatti (who will always be Bitter Beer Face Guy to me, David Hyde Pierce, Molly Shannon and Patton Oswalt.

Details of the animated version are sketchy, but the comic is described like this:

When Emperor Zombie threatens the safety of all life on Earth, the president enlists the aid of a mechanical head. With Screw-On Head and Mr. Groin on the job, you just know there will be flying machines to be piloted, tombs to be robbed, and weird alien menaces to be thwarted — all that and talking dogs, too! It’s pure mayhem

I’m thinkin’ that anything with a character called Mr. Groin is bound to turn some heads. [Ba-dum, crash!]

One thought on “The Amazing Screw-On Head”

  1. Oh dear. The comic was just a little, ah, gonzo. A bucket of throwaway concepts tossed together.

    On the other hand, there was fun and twarthing. And the concept art looks good ;-).
