The X-Men Episode Guide 3×17: ‘Orhphan’s End’

The X-Men Episode Guide 3x17: 'Orhphan's End'

The early ’90s were spoiled for choice when it came to comic book adaptations. Not only was Batman: The Animated Series on the air, but X-Men led Marvel’s push to get on the small screen, diving right into the often convoluted continuity of everyone’s favorite mutants, luring in a generation of fans, and paving the way for cartoons to follow. That’s why we’ve set out to review every single episode of the ’90s X-Men animated series. This week, Cyclops finally figures out who his father is, and Storm will meet you... AT THE MONORAIL!

Cartoon Network’s ‘Clarence’ Press Kit Is A Killer Colorforms Comic

Clarence Press Kit

When Boom! Studios announced its first-look deal for comics and graphic novels based on Cartoon Network's original comedies, we took a look at a few of the newest shows set to debut and picked a few of the most likely candidates to cross over. While The Amazing World of Gumball proved to be the first cartoon to become a new comic as part of the deal, a new press kit from CN has me feeling like Skyler Page's Clarence, set to debut on April 14, would also be a solid choice too.

Mike Mignola’s Concept Art For Disney’s ‘Atlantis: The Lost Empire’ Gets Unearthed [Art]

Mike Mignola concept art for 'Atlantis: The Lost Empire'

Hey, remember Disney's Atlantis: The Lost Empire from 2001? It's okay if you don't, since it didn't have Fox Robin Hood or someone singing about ice puns, which, for good or ill, tend to make for the most memorable Disney movies. What it did have, however, were concept designs by Hellboy creator Mike Mignola, which have led to the movie becoming a cult favorite in recent years despite a poor initial showing at the box office.

With the Internet being what it is, these designs have of course found their way online, and they are predictably amazing. Check out a few of the best below, from Mignola's take on the characters, locations and creatures of Atlantis!

Last week, Hasbro announced that a movie based on Jem, the classic 1980s animated series about the glamour, glitter, fashion and fame of a rock star with a secret identity, was in development, helmed by G.I. Joe: Retaliation director Jon M. Chu. Since this is literally the most important thing that has ever happened, ComicsAlliance has cleared its schedule to allow for that most fun pastime for writers on the internet: Rampant speculation about what we would do if we were in charge of bringing Jem and the Holograms to the big screen.

Today, CA Senior Writer Chris Sims takes a shot at what he thinks a truly, truly, truly outrageous (whoa-oh-oh-oh) Jem movie should be.
