Kolchak: The Night Stalker By Patrick Reilly!

Is this wonderful illustration from Patrick Reilly over at deviantART what a Saturday morning animated version of the classic Night Stalker television series would look like?

I’m not sure…but I’m positive that I would love it if there were a series animated in this style!

    Great image!
    But I’m glad they never made an animated cartoon of this.
    Couldn’t bear the sight of a talking schnauzer sidekick tripping up werewolves as Kolchak fumbled for the silver bullets.

    Jazzed about the movie prospects (Edgar Wright is a movie-maker deity), though Depp seems rather odd for the role.
    They would’ve nailed the grizzled, veteran nature of Kolchak with someone like Bryan Cranston instead.

    Still, I’m very curious to see what comes from all this.
