In case you’ve not been studying Tracy Butler’s webcomic Lackadaisy, you’ve been lacking out. Don’t fear, although—not solely do you might have time to catch up, however Iron Circus Comics is bringing the comics to life with a 27-minute, animated brief movie that, frankly, seems to be unbelievable.
Severely, I’ve not making an attempt to oversell this. This might have been made by Don Bluth at his apex:

Discovering themselves in fairly over their heads when an armed-to-the-teeth rival gang ambushes them, that is the story of their mad sprint to make it via a bootlegger’s night time shift.”
