I don’t like to use the term “genius” a lot, but if there’s anybody working in the current industry scene who can be classified as such, it’d be Aaron Springer. His new Cartoon Network series, KORGOTH OF BARBARIA, premieres as a regular “Adult Swim” show in September, but a special preview episode is airing multiple times on CN this weekend (check their schedule for times).
There’s a lot of talent involved with the show besides Springer. Genndy Tartakovsky is a producer on the series and has been doing timing. Bill Wray is painting backgrounds. He’s posted a number of terrific bgs on his blog. And Justin Thompson is designing background layouts.
Below is the preview commercial currently airing for the show. KORGOTH has the potential for greatness, and it’s one show I’ll definitely be keeping an eye on.
