Hey folks, Ambush Bug here. Just wanted to give you all a heads up that I’ll be traveling to New York to check out this year’s New York Comic Con. Last year’s trip was a blast and this year’s coming together nicely. Expect some con reports and of course some interviews. I’m also hosting a panel called AICN COMICS: HORROR ON THE PANELED PAGE on Friday night at 8:45pm with panelists Ben Templesmith (30 DAYS OF NIGHT, WORMWOOD GENTLEMAN CORPSE), Brandon Seifert (WITCH DOCTOR), Menton 3 (SILENT HILL, MONOCYTE), Alan Robert (WIRE HANGERS, CRAWL TO ME), David Quinn (FAUST), Tim Seeley (HACK/SLASH, WITCHBLADE), Matt Pizzolo (Halo-8 founder, GODKILLER), Chris Monifette (HELLRAISER) and possibly a few surprise guests. The panel is late this year: 8:45-9:45pm on Friday Room 1A22, but we promise to make it worth staying for. This is a continuation of a similar panel I did this summer at SDCC and looks to be another great one dissecting all of the goods and bads of horror in comics.
On top of all of that, fans of comic book writer Warren Ellis take note: Halo-8 will sponsor a sneak preview of Patrick Meany’s documentary, WARREN ELLIS: CAPTURED GHOSTS on Friday October 14th at 11:15pm downtown Cinema Village, 22 E 12th Street, NYC 10003, (212-924-3363) during New York Comic Con. You can pick up tickets here OR if you’re lucky, you could win a pair of tickets from me! You bet your @$$ I’ll be there and I have five pairs of tickets to give away for this screening. If you’re going to be in the New York area and want to go to this premiere, all you have to do is click on this link and tell me what your favorite Warren Ellis comic is. It’s that simple. Keep the emails brief (one paragraph), and make sure you are going to be able to make it Friday night (the show’s at 11:15pm). Good luck!
So if you’re going to be at NYCC this year, let me know and I’ll be sure to check out your booth or presentations. And be sure to check out these events above! If you won’t be there, I’ll be reporting back to you all here at AICN to keep you posted on all that happens!
