Source: Press Release

It appears our friends at Top Shelf are getting into the animated adaptation game. James Kolchaka, creator of the graphic novel Superf*ckers, about the most misanthropic and dysfunctional superhero team outside of Watchmen, has adapted the book to the very small screen. The Super*fuckers now star in their own webseries on YouTube, and the first episode went up earlier today. To celebrate, The Shelf is heading onward, to the digital age by discounting the digital versions of Kolchaka's work with the publisher. 

If that wasn't enough, Top Shelf is also announcing a brand new League of Extraordinary Gentlemen spin-off story, entitled Nemo: Heart of Ice, brought to you by Alan Moore and Kevin O'Neill themselves!

All this, plus a new issue of World War III Illustrated, dedicated to engagement with The Other.

Read all about it:

In the grim cold of February surfaces a thrilling new League of Extraordinary Gentlemen book: NEMO: HEART OF ICE, a full-color 56-page adventure in the classic pulp tradition by the inestimable Alan Moore and Kevin O'Neill.

It's 1925, fifteen long years since Janni Dakkar first tried to escape the legacy of her dying science-pirate father, only to accept her destiny as the new Nemo, captain of the legendary Nautilus. Now, tired of her unending spree of plunder and destruction, Janni launches a grand expedition to surpass her father's greatest failure: the exploration of Antarctica. Hot on her frozen trail are a trio of genius inventors, hired by an influential publishing tycoon to retrieve the plundered valuables of an African queen. It's a deadly race to the bottom of the world -- an uncharted land of wonder and horror where time is broken and the mountains bring madness. Jules Verne meets H.P. Lovecraft in the unforgettable final showdown, lost in the living, beating and appallingly inhuman HEART OF ICE.


Cartoon Hangover, a production of Frederator Studios, presents the animated series SuperF*ckers, based on the Top Shelf comics series by James Kochalka. With voices by David Faustino (Married With Children), Jaleel White (Family Matters), Maria Bamford (Louie), Veronica Belmont (Tekzilla, Sword and Laser), Phil Morris (Seinfeld), James Kochalka himself, and many more.

You're in luck! The first episode -- "Sweet Mystery" -- is out today.

"To approach the Other in conversation is to welcome his expression. The relation with the Other, or conversation, brings me more than I contain. If one could possess, grasp, and know the Other, it would not be Other." -- Emmanuel Levinas
