I’ll admit, I don’t love everything about Adult Swim. They do have some funny stuff for sure, but I think they too often go for cheap humor instead of clever writing. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for the occasional fart joke, just not 30 straight minutes of fart jokes. But this new series coming out has me intrigued. With animation by ShadowMachine,a stop-motion comedy-horror anthology created by Vernon Chatman premieres December 9. It looks like a delicately crafted, darkly surreal anthology comedy billed as “a miniature propulsive omnibus clusterbomb of painfully riotous daymares all dripping with the orange goo of dream logic,” The Shivering Truth is a series of loosely-linked emotional parables about stories within tales that crawled out of the deepest caverns of your unconscious mind and became lovingly animated in breath-slapping stop motion.
