Book Overview

The story behind the creation of one of the most celebrated, revolutionary animated series of all time

X-Men: The Art and Making of the Animated Series takes fans behind the scenes of the landmark cartoon that laid the groundwork for the dozens of Marvel Comics adaptations that followed. Interviews with series writers, artists, producers, and executives reveal the razor's edge that Marvel and Fox navigated in order to bring the X-Men to television, and detail the tough decisions, compromises, and brilliant solutions that resulted in a series that has been lauded by critics and fans for nearly three decades.

Along the way, readers will encounter comics and entertainment luminaries Stan Lee, Margaret Loesch, Avi Arad, and Haim Saban, as well as exclusive production art and commentary from key X-Men: TAS artists such as supervising producer/director Will Meugniot, producer/director Larry Houston, producer/director Frank Squillace, storyboard artist and model designer Rick Hoberg, model designer Frank Brunner, and character, prop, and model designer/cleanup artist Mark Lewis.

This book gives a firsthand account of what it's like to develop, pitch, design, write, draw, direct, and produce a hit animated series, and is jam-packed with never-before-seen concept sketches, storyboards, character models, background layouts, cels, and production and promotional materials.

   A Must Buy For The Original Viewers
I grew up watching this cartoon in the early 1990s, and when I saw this book, I knew I had to get it right away. When I finally got to open it and take a quick glance through the pages, it took me directly back to my childhood. There is so much cool stuff in this book, like the original designs of the characters and everything I wanted to see as a kid, but it doesn 't matter that in every adult there is still a piece of their childhood waiting to come back to relive those memories. Old fans and new fans are welcome.

   I'm almost positive I got a used item
Honestly, I would have given this five-star rating, but it showed a little bit of damage on the corners and it did not have any type of protecting cover on it, so there are definitely scratches all over it. Seems like I received a used item with scuffs and indents on the hardcover all around it.

   The best book ever...
This book is the book for all fans of probably the best representationaion of the X - Men ever. The art is beautiful and reading is educational about how this wonderful series was created. Highly recommended for any X-Men fan.

   Buy this book if you need a good trip down memory lane.
Way better than I've imagined. There is a shot for shot storyboard of the theme song of the cartoon. This show inspired me to become an art director. It is now a peek behind the curtain and seeing how the magic happened and now it inspires me in a whole new way!

   The true "PRYDE" of the X-Men!!
Not only did I receive my order a day earlier than expected, but once I opened it, I couldn t wait to read it! And I did, I read for a solid 3 hrs before forcing myself to stop because I didn 't want it to end. But the stories told along with the behind the scenes information is so interesting. And all designs, sketches, cell paintings... there's so much to take in.

   Received Book with Torn Binding on Inside
I love the X-Men, but this is unacceptable. The book also had no bubble wrap protection of any kind inside the box box.

   To me my X-Men
There are many reasons to buy this book. The art is cool for words, the information is informative. This is the best X - Men book I bought that year. Don 't buy a second book, guess it. It is worth the price.
