CG "Bucky O'Hare" is Buzzworthy

Continuity Studios, owned by comic book illustrator/author Neal "Deadman" Adams, has launched 'Buzzworthy', a production entity focusing specfically on film projects.

First feature under the new banner will be CG-animated "Bucky O'Hare", based on the comic book series, with Adams directing and producing from a script by "Bucky" creator Larry Hama.

"Bucky" was first published by Continuity Comics in the mid-1980s, appearing in the anthology series "Echo of Futurepast".

The comic book spawned an animated TV show in 1991, followed by a series of action figures. In 1992, a "Bucky O'Hare" video game was developed by Konami for the Nintendo Entertainment System, followed by an arcade game.

Premise of "Bucky O'Hare", focuses on a parallel universe called the 'aniverse', where a war is ongoing between the 'United Animals Federation', run by mammals, and the reptilian 'Toad Empire', led by a computer system known as 'KOMPLEX'.
