"Rowdy" Roddy Piper Reported Dead at 61
Achewood cartoonist Chris Onstad is ready to take the next step with his insanely popular webcomic — clear to Hollywood. To that end, he’s debuted a 19-second clip showing Ray, Roast Beef and the others in animated form, the first step in what he hopes is the path to television.
“I’ve been working with a team of artists, engineers, and producers to bring Achewood to life,” Onstad wrote Sunday on his blog. “To give it the voices, richness, and opportunities it never had as a comic strip. […] I’m flying to Los Angeles today to begin a week of network pitch meetings. If things go well, we’ll find a home for our show. Please cross your fingers for us, send us your good energy. And please, share this clip with your world. I’m very proud of what we’ve done.”
