Today we get the scoop on"Hurricane Kids" from Ryan Cody.

Q: Describe "Hurricane Kids"in two sentences or less.

The Hurricane Kids is a throwback to everything that is fun aboutcomics and cartoons, the good guys doing what's right regardless oftemptation and the ease of taking shortcuts. Think big action, goodmorals.

Q: If you were to compare"Hurricane Kids" to a movie or TV show what would it be?

A less campy "Teen Titans"with the style of "Samurai Jack" with alittle coolness of Fleisher's Superman.

Q: Why do you think"Hurricane Kids" would translate to film/TV/animation?

It has a solid moral base andbuilt in superhero history providing awide range of stories and heroes. It can also be topical spanning anyevent over the last 50 years or more. It also features a wide range ofcharacters including a very strong female lead, a traditional Irishmanand a strong African American role model. Not very many shows featurea superhero team led by 2 very positive minority characters.
