According to CBR, each “irreverent and emotionally shocking” episode of Diabolical is a standalone short film animated in a different style, with “I’m Your Pusher” taking its visual cues directly from Robertson’s work on the original comic. Ennis wrote the episode, which is directed by Giancarlo Volpe.
The Boys Presents: Diabolical premieres Friday, March 4 on Prime Video. The animated series will run for a total of eight episodes. The Boys Season 3 will then premiere on Friday, June 3.
