Fanboy and fangirls alike will not want to miss Shelf Life, an irreverent new live-action web series about four action figures perched on a young boy's shelf. In its hilarious first season, Shelf Life will introduce audiences to Hero Man (Travis Willingham: Thor, Transformers, Marvel Super Hero Squad), Hero Lass (Tara Platt: The Gilmore Girls, Charmed, Afterworld), Bug Boy (Yuri Lowenthal: Terminator: TSCC, Ben 10: Alien Force, Legion of Superheroes), and Samurai Snake (Bryan Enk), as they wax poetic on a range of hot-button topics. This R-rated series leaves no controversial topic untouched and no curse word unused!
Shelf Life Season One was written by Lowenthal and Eisner Award-winning comic book writer Paul Jenkins (Inhumans, Captain America, Wolverine: Origin) and is directed by Jenkins.
Shelf Life creators/producers Tara Platt and Yuri Lowenthal sat down with Fanboy Comics President Bryant Dillon to discuss their new web series, the process for creating their characters, and which action figure they would be and why!
This interview was conducted on Friday, October 21, 2011.
