More X-Men DVDs on the Way!

Just after the release of X-Men, Volume One and X-Men, Volume Two, comes a little bit of exciting news:

Tv Shows on DVD reports that some black and white artwork has appeared on the website of David Nakayama under the heading X-Men: the Animated Series DVD Artwork -- Vol. 3. The picture was pulled from his site which is causing fans to assume that the artwork is legitimate and that a third volume of X-Men DVD is on its way! You can view the artwork at Tv Shows on DVD.

Now this is all very speculative, so let's take this with a grain of salt until we get an official release notification.

However, in the world of actual news, the second volume of Wolverine and the X-Men is now on the schedule for July 21. This single disc release, called Wolverine and the X-Men - Volume Two: Deadly Enemies, will contain five widescreen episodes along with creator commentary.

Episodes included in this release are Overflow, Theives Gambit, X-Calibre, Wolverine vs. the Hulk, and Time Bomb.

I refuse to buy these until they come out with it as a season set, though I must admit the cover art is pretty cool looking for sure, And it has some of my favorite episodes on this one for the series. But the Hulk episode was not very good in my opinion.

Very exciting news about X-Men: TAS! But WHY are they releasing W&TX-Men like this???? All these single disc volumes are a slap in the face to the fans. They better release a full season set.

You can bet that they will release a season set. But they release these single discs for a few reasons:

1) People, like parents, are more willing to spend $10 on a cartoon for their kids rather than however much it will cost for a multi-disc set.

2) Some fans only want to buy certain episodes and don't want the rest of the season.

3) Some fans can't wait until the season set comes out and will buy these on impulse.

4) Piracy is always an issue so the studios try to get out these DVDs as soon as they air so that they are available to the public. (The episodes contained in this volume conclude all of the episodes that have been shown on Nicktoons to date)

For the fans, we will get our season set, but we will have to wait. I don't see this as a slap in the face, but rather a way for the studios to cover all their fanbase.
