Package Art: Disney/ Marvel DVD Box

Back in 1993, the Fox network aired the first episode of X-Men: the Animated Series as part of its Saturday morning cartoon lineup. It received impressively high ratings and ran for 5 seasons, with a total of 76 episodes, many of which were based on popular storylines from the comics. In 2009, David Nakayama had the good fortune to work on this package art for Disney’s release of the show, as well as Iron Man: The Animated Series.

Original, unused lineart for X-men: The Animated Series Vol.4.  This one’s a recreation of the show’s catchy and very popular intro sequence, but it was deemed too busy for the final package.  So they went with a zoomed-in version of the Wolverine/Sabretoot
