Nerds, Geeks, Dads - Episode 56 - Eric & Julia Lewald - Previously on X-Men

Art Eddy and Zach Rosenberg bring on Eric and Julia Lewald to talk about the X-Men Animated Series. Eric and Julia wrote a book called Previously on X-Men. In late 1992, on small budgets and under tight schedules, the cast and crew of X-MEN: The Animated Series crafted a television show that, despite an industry full of naysayers, immediately shot to #1. This “kids’ show” often landed more than half the TV viewers across America, and a twenty-year gold rush of Marvel motion pictures and TV series followed.

Previously on X-Men is Eric Lewald’s personal, inside account of how the series got on the air, the many challenges that were overcome, and how the show prevailed. The head writer interviewed 36 of the artists, writers, voice cast, and executives who helped make this game-changing series a worldwide success. This book is an authoritative look into the creation of the animated series that nobody expected to succeed. Lewald offers a unique behind-the-scenes look at the Saturday-morning cartoon series that changed Hollywood.
