Artist David Nakayama has posted this excellent picture on his deviantART page. Nakayama is the artist who has provided Buena Vista with the cover art for the first four volumes of X-Men on DVD.
He tells us that this picture is the cover art for the long awaited X-Men, Volume Five! Here is what he has to say about the cover art:
This X-Men/Captain America montage is the cover for the fifth and final volume of X-Men: The Animated Series on DVD, and it contains all the remaining episodes of the beloved show, including the Captain America crossover and appearances by fan-favorites Omega Red, Longshot, and many others. Too many cool moments to choose from, which is why we decided to go with a montage on this one.
Hadn't drawn a lot of these characters previously (well, not professionally at least, and not since I was a kid), so it was a total joy to take on this project. Watch for the DVD on March 3rd, 2010!
p.s. Even though this is the last of the X-Men covers, I've got something else along the same lines cookin' as we speak. Stay tuned...
That's right! March 3, 2010! The Captain America crossover mentioned is the fifth season episode Old Soldiers.
I don't know about you, but I'm hoping that David is hinting at the fact that he is working on cover art for Spider-Man: the Animated Series DVDs!
(Thanks Hero Supreme for the tip!)
