The project will include comic creations from the early careers of notable animators before they became well-known, celebrating the shared history of the mediums.
King Features Syndicate, co-producers of the popular Netflix animated series, The Cuphead Show!, has announced its new comics collection currently in development, The Animator’s Attic. The project celebrates the shared history of comics and animation by inviting animators to share a sample of the comics and cartoons they created before becoming well-known.
“So many great animators got their start drawing comics and cartoons before moving into the field of animation and most of them have never shared that work publicly before,” said C.J. Kettler, President of King Features. “With The Animator’s Attic, we’re excited to honor the shared history of comics and animation by inviting animators to dust off their comics portfolios and offering a place to showcase their early work.”
The Animator’s Attic is expected to launch later this year on ComicsKingdom.com.
After a successful February debut on Netflix, Season 2 of The Cuphead Show! Is scheduled to hit the streamer this summer.
