It’s a lot, and in the right hands, could serve as the kind of irreverent, weird, and over-the-top-gory riff on adult animation that’s all the rage today—Invincible but with a Monkey, if you will.

But the fact that it’s animated at a framerate that would make the first season of The Dragon Prince look like it was smooth as butter is absolutely doing no favors for a show that is not only incredibly action oriented, but also being dropped after over two years of silence in just a few month’s time.
