Hey folks, Ambush Bug here. we only have a few previews for you this week as comic book-dom prepares for the San Diego Comic Con. I’m going to be out there from Wednesday through Sunday and it looks to be another fantastic con this year. Much like last year where I hosted a chat about comics and horror, I’ve teamed up with producer Peter Katz again to put together a panel full of horror’s up and coming voices. We’re calling it “The Horror Filmmaker” and we’re going to see what it takes to make horror in today’s Hollywood. Slated to be on the panel are Kevin Grevioux (Co-writer/actor of UNDERWORLD and creator of I, FRANKENSTEIN), Dan Myrick (Co-writer/Co-director of THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT), Todd Farmer (Scriptwriter of MY BLOODY VALENTINE remake), Adam Gierasch (NIGHT OF THE DEMONS remake director and co-writer), Jace Anderson (Co-writer of NIGHT OF THE DEMONS remake), Steven C. Miller (Director of AUTOMATION TRANSFUSION & SCREAM OF THE BANSHEE), and Ben Ketai (Scriptwriter / director of DARK DAYS: 30 DAYS OF NIGHT 2). I want to invite all who are attending the comic con to stop by the Marriott Hotel in the Marriott Hall 2. It is right next door to the Convention Center (at the Hall A end). The address is 333 W Harbor Dr, San Diego, CA 92101. This panel will take place on Thursday, July 22 at 4:00pm-5:00pm. The event will be filmed and pics a plenty will be snapped. So come dressed in your favorite horror get up and I’ll post them here on AICN!
My fellow @$$hole superhero and I will be at the con this year, so drop us a line if you want us to stop by your booth, give us free shit, or just shoot the shit about comics over beers. I’ll be reporting all week from San Diego, so look for updates starting Wednesday along with our regular review column. So if you can’t make it, I’ll give you the next best thing by reporting all I see, hear, smell, and drink while at the con.

Next up, we have an early look at one of the concept designs from movie adaptation of THE HUNTER, a series from Dare Comics worth seeking out. This piece was done by Andree Wallin. I’ll be keeping you all up to date on this film as it progresses, but until then click on the image to see it in all it’s colorfully awesome glory!

Hey all, Ambush Bug here with another peek at from the wild world of webcomics. This week we have CAPTAIN RICK’S ARMOR PARTY, a Star Wars parody series. Just after a few clicks and my belly was rolling. There’s a lot of fun to be had with the Star Wars Universe and Captain Rick doesn’t pull the punches. Very funny stuff to click through and plenty of material to enjoy. Have fun!


Finally, we’ll leave you with this, a great send off to the late Harvey Pekar from Genuine Nerd Toby Radloff. Thanks to Al Wonder and the folks at Lurid Media for sending this over to me. RIP, Mr. Pekar.

    Dammit, just b/c it says Cthulhu doesn't mean

    by Squashua

    you have to use "Ia, Ia, Cthulhu ftagn." Make up your own damn phrase to toss into the mythos.

    Syndrome

    by nursey

    Looks better than about 90% of Archaia's books. I wonder if that'll make a difference.
