FLEISCHER Battles CYBER-ABE in the Animated Short "Dead Presidents Gone Wild"

FLEISCHER Battles CYBER-ABE in the Animated Short "Dead Presidents Gone Wild"

In his second animated short, our "hero" takes on Cyber-Abe, a cybernetically reborn version of the former president of the United States of America. Get ready for "Dead Presidents Gone Wild."

The online comic Fleischer & The Group, which will be published soon in comic book form, spawns its second animated short, this one based on the first issue of said comic.

In it, we get our original introduction to Fleischer when he was much more of a Superman parody, who goes up in battle against the reincarnation of President Abraham Lincoln, who in turn appears as Cyber-Abe. It's this dead president's intent to destroy the hero of Generic City and everything that he stands for (though few have been able to figure out exactly what that is).

The voice of Fleischer is provided by Brandon McCaskil, while Cyber-Abe is voiced by Timothy Banfield in a performance that definitely brings with it "echoes" of Christopher Walken - which is, of course, purely coincidental. The script is written by yours truly with Leon McKenzie, with original art by Fernando Sosa. Animation is provided by Majd Alabras and there's even a Fleischer theme song, written and performed by James Shepard.

Years ago, the Fleischer character (as well as others making up "The Fleischerverse," including Media Geek) made his debut on CBM and its former sister site, earthsmightiest.com, in the form of comic strips, so there's something really fun about bringing these animated shorts to CBM. Hope you enjoy.
