Introduction by Jack Enyart

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 his heroes as a professional artist/director was the ultimate achievement of his career. In all the shows he was in charge of, he infused that intangible quality of fanboy fun and action into all his shows.
