Wolverine & the X-Men

So, after a bit of a wait, "Wolverine & the X-Men" is now airing in North America! It was a BBC co-production, and had to air in it's entirety in the UK before it did over here contractually. (Who knows...) It's turned out to be pretty hot, and there's murmers of a new season coming up which would suit me fine!

Here's a promo trailer; there's a few sequences I'm waiting for to put up, including a multi-Wendigo fight sequence, and an Arch-Angel freeway chase that were a blast to do, and look great, despite the animation being what you'd expect. But the writing's a blast! A combination of things from the Byrne :"Future/Past" content, all the way up to the new Joss Whedon stuff. Just great serialized, well written, disposable superhero adventures, the way it was meant to be digested!

Incidentally, there's no Hellfire Club employee decapitation / dismemberment in the show. Just me playing hooky.

And giggling.
