Just a reminder that the archive is still here and is expanding. Just added storyboard samples from City Of Steel, taken from when the full set was auctioned about three years ago.

Also, if anyone out there has material they would be willing to contribute. All you need is the item itself, a phone with a camera and Adobe Scan: .

And that's not all. I encourage anyone who visits to use the Productions links on the right-hand side. I've got scripts, storyboards and other material from

Spider-Man And His Amazing Friends The Incredible Hulk Dungeons & Dragons GI Joe Defenders Of The Earth Jem Inhumanoids Visionaries Bucky O'Hare And The Toad Wars

and other shows covering from 1981 to 1991. In theory, if the material became available, the site's remit could stretch from 1979 when the first solo Spider-Man scripts were submitted for DePatie-Freleng. All the way until 2004 when Sunbow was closed down for good.
