There’s only about 2 reasons why people my age are into the X-Men. Either someone older (siblings, parents, whoever) exposed them to the greatness, or we watched X-Men the Animated Series. That’s it. There is no other reason at all.
Which makes this episode very special because we get to hear from Eric and Julia Lewald who between them wrote, developed, show ran, and generally shaped our views of the world through X-Men the Animated Series. I can’t even try to be witty here because I’m still so excited that this happened.
And don’t miss the fact that there are books you can buy, one of which isn’t full of pictures. Because for some reason people like those.
Learn such things as:
- Who gets to decide if a show can come back on the air?
- How do you balance the desires of so many people to include so many characters?
- X-Men talks about social justice issues? When did that start? [/sarcasm]
- And so much more!
