COMICS: Updates on the new Astonishing X-Men motion comics!

In an interview, Todd Casey, Supervising Producer on the Astonishing X-Men Dangerous motion comic series, revealed a good bit on what's going on with this latest series...

After adapting the first 6 issues of Joss Whedon & John Cassaday’s run on Astonishing X-Men in the Astonishing X-Men: Gifted motion comic series, Marvel Knights Animation will adapt the rest of the team’s run & they are starting with the Dangerous story arc next.

In an interview, Todd Casey, Supervising Producer on the Astonishing X-Men Dangerous motion comics, revealed a good bit on what's going on with this latest series. Casey works with Atomic Studios & is in charge of the entire production of each episode of the series.



On animating John Cassaday's art:
John is really a born director. His shot selection is impeccable & his characters have such expressive acting, which comes in really handy for what we’re doing. He brings the scenes to life with a cinematic realism that did us a world of good in the translation. The challenge in making his artwork move is that he uses a touch of charcoal around his line work. On the page, it gives it a wonderful texture, but when you blow up a small panel to the size of a TV screen, it can be tricky to preserve the detail in a line like that.


On why the Whedon/Cassaday story is great for animation:
Joss & John are really cinematic storytellers. Joss has well over a dozen seasons of TV under his belt, & he brought everything he learned in that time to his comic work. His scripts are airtight & there’s a liveliness to his style that keeps the pace going even in dialogue-heavy scenes.
