Director Frank Squillace and I did cameos in both the X-MEN and The FANTASTIC FOUR.
Larry F. Houston is the Emmy-nominated, Producer/Director of The X-Men Animated Series, the phenomenally successful 1990s series that was part of the foundation that helped launch Marvel's multi-billion-dollar franchises. He is also the 2018 Ink Pot Winner in Animation from the
San Diego Comic Con.
Hired by Filmation as the FIRST African American Saturday Morning Storyboard Artist, he storyboarded and directed some of the favorite 80s and 90s classic shows such as Thundarr, Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends, GI Joe, GI Joe The Movie Intro, Mr.T, Batman, Jonny Quest, Teenage mutant Ninja Turtles, Captain Planet, The Fantastic Four, Mighty Orbots, Bionic Six, ExoSquad, Bucky O'Hare, Jem, Galtar, C.O.P.S., Spawn, Ultimate Avengers II, Community and
Kid N' Play.
He pencilled the He-Man Mini-Comics that accompanied the toy figures, worked as an inker on DC's All-Star Squadron, Captain Carrot and pencilled a TANK story for the DNAgents and FLARE story for Heroic Comics. He drew the Animated Series Intros to THE X-MEN, the
GI JOE MOVIE, ROBOCOP: ALPHA COMMANDO, and THE KARATE KID.
Reading Jack Kirby/Stan Lee comics in his youth and then working with them both as a professional was the ultimate peak of his career. Including the intangible quality of fanboy fun and action he read in his youth is what he has included into all his shows.

I was a 20-something in the mid-70s, working to recreate the magic of the Silver Age of Comics I had enjoyed,
when I began publishing my high school fanzine, THE ENFORCERS.
Life happens when you least expect it. Saturday Morning Cartoons took over
my life and, although only three issues were published, I am proud of that accomplishment.
Now, as time marches on and a new
door has opened, I want to complete some storylines I started, but never
got a chance to finish.
So please click and enjoy this flashback reprint collection of all three issues, my first of many graphic novel nods to the Silver Age of Superheroes!

I am working on my superhero screenplay and re-developing my VANGUARDS concept, first published by Charlton Comics in 1981, for today's audience.
