G.I. Joe: Resolute

via Penny Arcade

Warren Ellis's PG-13 reboot of the G.I. Joe franchise:
The point was to write an hour-long story that really put the property and the characters through some shit changes: as if this were the GI JOE film (at the time of my writing RESOLUTE, there still wasn’t a locked script on the live-action film) and I was rebooting and re-grounding the property on my own. These sort of gigs are immense technical challenges, and really sharpen up some skills I wouldn’t ordinarily use.
Haven't seen any of it yet since I'm at work, but it looks a damn sight better than the live-action movie. Ten 5 minute episodes with a 10 minute finale... they're up to episode 8 now, and you can watch it online.
