Really thinking about how f*cked up a “Batman and Robin” style relationship actually would be…
… then you’re going to love Boxtown.
Set in a fictional, crime-ridden neon city, Boxtown is an adult animated show following Tim, a so-so detective with a knack for conning both clients and suspects alike, as he teams up with Bill, a squishable and earnest orphan obsessed with true crime. Although they’re an unlikely duo, Tim and Bill share one common goal: solving cases—even if for Bill, it’s more altruistic than Tim’s main motivators, which are (1) to make money, and (2) to stick it to the city’s prestigious corporate detective agency.
At the center of its glistening, gory core, Boxtown meditates on what it’s like to constantly stare down the barrel of mediocrity, confronting whether you can rise above your own limitations, and if so, whether the means by which you do justify the ends.
As of September 23rd, this project has raised $9,600 of their $15,000 goal. This project has 58 days left to raise the $15,000 or it might not be funded.
