Found in the back room.

This is an ersatz animation cel featuring Rob Liefeld’s character of Chapel, dated 1997, that we received for, I don’t know, ordering a certain number of comics (i.e. “any”) published by Awesome, or something like that. It’s just an image, with logos, printed directly on a clear plastic sheet.

I don’t think there ever was a Youngblood cartoon released…there’s no IMDB entry, though there are several references to a Youngblood cartoon being planned, here and there on the ‘net. This site [link dead] has images of what look like actual production cels, not (apparently) mass-produced like our Chapel “cel.”

While I was looking around for more info, I came across the Wikipedia entry for the Youngblood comic book, which included this note at the top of the page:

Sometimes, the jokes just write themselves.

EDIT 4/1/2017: Okay, it doesn’t say that anymore…now it’s “needs verification” or whatever, which isn’t nearly as amusing.
