Discuss the new X-Men: Evolution comic series!

X-MEN EVOLUTION


Check out more at Toon Zone Comics!

THE SCOOP: The hit WB cartoon -- beginning its second smash season -- is now a brand-new comic book!

THE SET-UP: You've seen the X-Men: Evolution animated series... but do you know what happened before the show began? Marvel kicks off a new all-ages title based on the popular program -- and begins with a story that reveals the events before the first episode!

THE STORY: Before the X-Men, before the Xavier Institute, before the rivalry, there were two men with very different visions. Before the code names, before the secret identities, before the world learned to hate and fear mutants, there was a young woman whose most dangerous weapon was her mind. Before costumes, before the training, and before anyone had ever heard of "adamantium," there was a frightened amnesiac searching for the truth. Now, the lives of Professor X, Magneto, Storm, and Wolverine collide as the world stands on the brink of genetic war. How do two best friends become arch-enemies? How does a goddess from Africa find her place in the world? How does a man without a past decide mankind's future? All heroes start with power and ambition they must learn to control. All villains start with ideas they believe to be just. And all great legends begin with "once upon a time..." X-Men: Evolution -- In the beginning, there was X!

THE CREATORS: Written by Devin Grayson (Black Widow, Ghost Rider), and drawn in an awesome animated style by Udon Studios (Last Call).

This is the only thread i can find for the comic. too bad no one else talked about the book. i just read the comic has been canceled. A pretty bad move , i mean , it has great art by udon , its behind a very popular tv series , marvel killed this one , as it didnt get the attention and care it deserved by marvel , not by the fans , i loved it , and i will miss it dearly , i just hope marvel realises this comics needs mmore advertising , instead of cancelling it without giving it a chance............i just hope marvel rethinks about this.......


a day of grief , really.

Yeah - I put that news up on the newspage (http://news.toonzone.net) today. I can see why Marvel would do it. They cut just about any low selling comic and this was one of their lowest selling comics. They just cut the lose and dropped the book. Well, at least it lasted longer than the Spider-Man Unlimited comic...

I myself am truly saddened and upset about this. :( :mad: I found the artwork very nicely done and a couple of the stories were pretty good. I can't believe this happened! :(

:mad: P O'd man, that book had the best art i've ever seen. It 0wnzz even transformers and ultimate spiderman. And the stories were bad a##, its a sad day when a quality book like X-Men: Evolution can be cancelled and Justice League Adventures can survive. :confused:

Alas, another general audiences comic disappears. Heh, well, at least this means they won't publish that one with the awful Mr. Sinister redesign!

Are they still going to release the TPB? Seems kinda redundant to compile the first 4 issues of a comic that was cancelled on its ninth.

I guess Marvel's stance is that the Ultimate line of books are their general audience books.

One thing I would have really liked to see in the comic would be Devin/UDON's take on Lance and Kitty's relationship. I loved how they touched on Rogue's infatuation with Scott, and I think they would have done a nice job on Lance and Kitty's Romeo and Juliet-like forbidden love. :(

i blame the downfall of the comic on marvel. the evolution comic has the potential to become as popular as ulitmate x-men. i believe that the low sales is to due to the lack of advertisement. Many people don't even know there is an evolution comic. i didn't find out until issue #4. This isn't the only book that suffers from marvels crappy approach to selling comics. marvel seems to only promote uncanny,new,xtreme,and ultimate. look at how much they hyped up ulitmate x-men and spider man . marvel publishes alot of comics but most people only know about 6 or 7 of them. its hilarious that a big company can't figure out that a commercial during the evolution show(isn't the show one of the top 5 shows watched on saturday) would boost sales. i think im about to drop eveything that is marvel AGAIN(the x:men evoltuion cartoon is what lured me back to marvel and its crappy ways

anyways i plan on making a petition to try and save it. everyone sign it.

thanks :)

Petition Online - Petition Online has been retired

Welcome to the boards slayerx, not to burst your bubble or anything, but online petitions just don't work. They're just a waste of bandwidth. Writing an actual letter to the company in question(in this case Marvel) is much more effective, but in the case of X-Men: Evo, it's probably too little, too late.

Hey everybody, it's 7/15,World Noivern day! Kra-ka-ka-ka-kee-ree!
Butch Hartman is hinting again that 'Danny Phantom' might come back.
Does anyone find it a bit strange that Misty Lee has co-written 2 Scooby Doo productions (the Abracadabra Doo movie and the Spooky Scarecrow) and yet she's never done any voice acting in Scooby Doo? The former is especially strange since it's about stage magic, and she's also known for being a talented stage magician. On a related note, she should definitely voice Zatanna sometime in the future. It's easy casting.
And the winner is "The Grim Adventures Of The KND" which got 3 votes. "Modern Primitives" got nothing. The next matchup is between "Sky Pirates In The Sky" and "Quack Pack" .


Who is the most yellow-est fella that lives under the sea? Today SpongeBob and his VA Tom Kenny are celebrating Birthday! What a coincidence!
And yes, SpongeBob was born on July 14,1986, exactly 34 years ago!
