The post-apocalyptic panda returns with a trio of new episodes arriving online from Victoria Cocks' Wastelander Panda. A project that began as a joke during a university lecture, Wastelander Panda first emerged into the public eye with the release of a prologue video that garnered a huge response online. Word of mouth spread initially due to the bizarre concept - the wandering adventures of a panda bear warrior in a post apocalyptic landscape - but then grew exponentially once people realized this was actually really, really good.
While there is the occasional hiccup in these new videos - all of which can be put down to budgetary limits - the world is absolutely remarkable, a sort of fusion of Mad Max, Zatoichi and Lone Wolf And Cub with the obvious exception being that the hero here is a blade wielding panda bear. I am embedding the first episode below but I do recommend watching the others on the official site, where the videos are presented with links to additional information alongside them so you can dive right in to this fascinating world.
