Godkiller: Walk Among Us -- Based on the comic book writer-director Matt Pizzolo created with illustrator Anna Muckcracker, GODKILLER takes place in a dark-future after economic collapse, after nuclear holy war, and after Earth is colonized by alien races. Tommy and his kid sister Lucy live in an orphanage in one of the few remaining city-states, but Lucy is critically ill and desperately in need of a new heart. Tommy's odyssey to find a new heart for his sister begins when he follows an organ-stealing prostitute named Halfpipe out of the city-state and into the savage borderland known as Outer City. GODKILLER mixes unforgiving brutality, quantum physics, conspiracy theory, and secret history for an iconoclastic hero's journey like none before it.

About the GODKILLER 'illustrated film'
The 'illustrated film' Pizzolo, Muckcracker, and Giberson are creating for the adaptation mixes elements of anime, radio drama, video games, and motion comics. Utilizing the original artwork from the comic book, the 'illustrated film' adds motion animation, visual effects, elaborate sound design, music, and voice-acting performances.

Pizzolo explained "when we decided to make an anime adaptation of the comic book, I couldn't see how a traditional animated approach would do justice to Anna's incredibly lush and detailed illustrations. It made perfect sense to adapt the medium to suit her art, rather than vice versa."

almost, 11 November 2011
Author: Allan McGowan from Canada

"Godkiller" has a number of interesting elements and a great list of voice talent. The post-apocalyptic setting is dark, perverse, erotic, and violent. The character's have personalities as bent as their surroundings. Muckcracker's artistic style suits the story.

But, this was almost a movie. Instead what we have is a narrated storyboard. It's an excellent storyboard, but...it's a storyboard. I can only guess that one of two things happened: budget restrictions prevented this from becoming an actual animated feature, or laziness. Or both. This can't be considered a finished work, by any means, which the film itself firmly reminds you of at the end with a "TO BE CONTINUED".

Now, I believe "Godkiller" would make an extraordinary animated feature, and the narrated storyboard test that was produced proves that.

I can really only recommend this film to producers, in the hopes that they'll see the amazing potential of what this film could become and start throwing money at a studio of animators to finish it.

If you're not familiar with Pizzolo or Muckcracker, this might be a good introduction to their world but you'll probably be a lot happier if you just go out and buy the graphic novels.
