LeSean Thomas has been working on his Cannon Busters graphic novel for ages. I remember getting the number 0 issue years and years ago written by LeSean and drawn by Corey Lewis. Since then, the project has been in development limbo as LeSean concentrated on his animation career. Now, it seems he’s coming back to Cannon Busters but in a new form. I don’t know if it’s going to be a short or a series, but I expect we’re going to be seeing an animated Cannon Busters something sometime in 2013. Whether we get a trailer or a full on production is anyone’s guess. But the character designs look absolutely amazing.
Got to be honest, I’m kind of sad not to get the graphic novel first. I don’t know if that’s on permanent hold or what, but I really like the world that LeSean has created. I want to see more of it. I’ll be keeping an eye out for Cannon Busters in whatever form we get it. It’s going to be fucking awesome!
