WATCH | We caught up with Mark Russell, the writer of DC Comic's The Flintstones to see where the ideas for this dark, edgy political adult comic book came from.
With DC reviving the Hanna-Barbera comics they wanted to bring back The Flintstones.
For those unfamiliar with Mark's work, DC was drawn to his satirical writing style.
It felt natural to update The Flintstones so that the water buffalo's weren't just some rotary club but were actually a military service.
The revival of The Flintstones was always meant to be funny and true to the original cartoon, but Mark took this as an opportunity to make it a bit more relevant to today.
Updating storylines, swapping out Gentleman's clubs with VA Organizations and touching on topics such as war, consumerism, religion and gay rights.

What is next for The Flintstones and Bedrock?
There are two comic books left in the series where we will find out whether or not the human race will survive its infancy.
