My buddy Agent M (King of Twitter) found this awesome "Thundercat Gothic" piece by Derek Chatwood, and I had to share it. Chatwood's even got a whole movie idea to go with it:
Thundercats: The Movie, soon to be a major motion picture by Warner Brothers, slated for a Summer 2010 release. All Star Cast includes Brad Pitt, Morgan Freeman, Scarlett Johansson, and Paul Giamatti.

Story Pitch

Several months after the trial, the remaining Thundercats had settled in to their new lives. After turning state's evidence against Mumm-Ra (Freeman), Lion-O (Pitt) and Cheetara (Johansson) relocated to Nebraska, under the federal witness protection program. Their modest farm was nothing like the vast lands they ruled on New Thundera, but they enjoyed tending crops and livestock, and had even started their own organic label.

Panthro joined them on the farm, and shared the fields under a rental agreement with Lion-O. Panthro was required to give up most of his crop yeild to Lion-O, but compared to his years of unpaid, high risk indentured servitude, he still felt better off. Tygra, still not over Cheetara, requested location reassignment, and moved to New Mexico to sell real estate.

Snarf (Giamatti) was given a small trailer in the woods, but he was soon arrested by an ATF-DEA joint taskforce, for operating a small marijuana business. Cheetara and Lion-O, aware of his long history of drug abuse, refused to intervene. The twins, WilyKit and WilyKat, couldn't handle the quiet life, and opted out of the protection program altogether. They met some circus performers and began performing Cirque du Soleil shows in Vegas.

Peace would be short lived. Mumm-Ra had once again risen, this time from a medium-security work farm in North Carolina, and vowed vengeance on the Thundercats. Lion-O would have to find the Sword Of Omens, surrendered under the terms of his plea agreement, and bring the Thundercats together as a team once again.
Fan-fucking tastic. Check out more of Chatwood's art here.
