Thanks for the reaction to the announcement of our X-MEN:TAS book, due out next year. Ten times the usual number of people checked out this site over the past 24 hours. Well, if you’re looking forward to the book, please know that you can BE PART OF IT. There is going to be a chapter made up of testimonials. We’ve published two already on this blog — memories of what watching X-MEN:TAS has meant to you. Some people gained courage from the mutants’ struggles. Some gratified viewers became animators or cartoonists or philosophy majors (Beast fans). Others simply felt a connection to a group of characters that they had experienced nowhere else in their lives. A number of authors have mentioned being inspired by the storytelling (humbling praise indeed). Attached is a quote from the biography of Stephanie Meyer, the author of the much-loved “Twilight” series of books. Artists and craftsmen hope their work can reach people. Animation writers and artists tend to work alone or with a couple of friends and rarely do we experience that “connection,” with those who are affected by our efforts, that all creative workers strive for. So, if X-MEN:TAS has meant something to you, please write us about it at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will publish a variety of them, short or long, in the book.
