Ah yes, it was the early nineties (about 92 to be more accurate) and a new company called Image had just began composed of famous comic creators Todd McFarlane, Rob Liefeld, Marc Silverstri, Jim Lee, and Jim Valentino. Though let us not forget Whilice Portacio who had to leave the new company for personal reasons. Jim Lee's entry was WILDC.A.T.S a X-Menish little book boasting great art (as Lee's work always is) and some crazy characters. I had little to no idea what was going on. I've read the first four issues of that book so many times, closely trying to decipher it's plot. As with many Image books it lacked in plot. All I could make out was superheroes, aliens, bad-guy aliens, Orb, Timetravel, fate of the world in the balance, Liefeld's Youngblood shows up, and Vice-President Dan Quayle is possessed by an alien for some reason. Boy that guy got no respect during his time in office.
Now the cartoon. What can I say? Bad animation. Poor story telling. I bet the audience was as confused as I was when I read the book. At least the book had great art. I know the people at Image wanted their books to make great impacts on and off the page as Marvel and DC had, but it never happened. They just didn't have the soul or the writing. This cartoon's qualities were too poor. I didn't even care about the stripper chic that they dressed up, naturally. I don't remember anything of the two episodes I probably saw, however I do remember how bad the animation was. Let's play taps for Image comics and their dreams of stardom.
