Animation, Film


Neglected by the government and with no heroic memories or loving family members to return to, the two weary soldiers seek solace in alcohol, drugs and nihilistic hedonism. Haunted by nightmares of their pasts, they desperately struggle to stay on the surface of reality. In front of a bank in Utah, armed and emotionally numbed, they step out of a Ford Maverick. For what would feel like a split second, in the middle of their final self-annihilating act, one of them sees something he had never envisioned; an awakening?


Director Steven Spencer contacted Mikkel to proclaim his desire to turn Obsolete into a short narrative film.  Steven instantly fell in love with Mikkel’s illustration and thought provoking visual style.  The film stays true to the original content but expands upon the original story, adding a new dimension, but still maintaining a thoughtful and disturbing storyline.

Mikkel is an award winning Danish novelist, this book published by Nobrow has a cult status in the graphic novel world. Perfect for a film adaptation.
