Long Beach Comic Con 2017 – More Horrific Happenings

Published

on

Planning on attending the 2017 Long Beach Comic Con this September 2nd and 3rd? Looking for some horror action? We’ve got your hook-up. We’re good like that.

Saturday:

Fanbase Press Presents: Things that Go Bump in Horror Comics
We all enjoy a good scare, whether sitting around a campfire sharing ghost stories or in a darkened cinema watching alien species hunt their prey. Join writers Bryant Dillon (SOMETHING ANIMAL; IDENTITY THIEF) and David Lucarelli (CHILDREN’S VAMPIRE HUNTING BRIGADE), artist Megan Hutchison (WILL O’ THE WISP), INVADER ZIM’s Dave Crosland, and the HIGH MOON team of David Gallaher and Steve Ellis as they share what inspires them to write and illustrate horror in the sequential art medium, the challenges and benefits they face while working in the genre, and what they foresee in the future of horror comics.

Michele Brittany (Fanbase Press Editorial Manager), Bryant Dillon, David Lucarelli, Megan Hutchison, Dave Crosland, David Gallaher, and Steve Ellis

Women on the Dark Side
A great success at LBCE and Comic-Con International: San Diego returns to Long Beach! Not all female artists/creators are about unicorns and glittery vampires and silly pseudo-bondage. Some women create truly dark and challenging art and content, with just enough humor and whimsy to counterbalance all that darkness. Whether it’s comic books, novels, or art, these are some of the women who are creating content that connects with the deeper, darker side of all of us.

Barbra Dillon (Fanbase Press), Susan Lee (WRAITH OF LOVE, SHADOW OF THE KNIGHT); Madeleine Holly-Rosing (BOSTON METAPHYSICAL SOCIETY); Janet Joyce Holden (ORIGIN OF BLOOD series, CAROUSEL); Christie Shinn (PERSONAL MONSTERS, SEPULCHRE)

Sunday:

Arthur Suydam (Artist on Marvel Zombies, The Walking Dead, Batman, Army of Darkness) will be drawing free sketches for the first 150 kids ages 14 and under who come to his table on Sunday between 11 and 4.

Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation – First Trailer and Artwork!

Published

on

As a fan of flicks like Mad Monster Party, I was surprisingly pleased with the last two Hotel Transylvania affairs. For my money you can put the classic monsters in just about anything, and I’ll watch it happily, and these animated features feel like a natural progression of the 1967 Rankin and Bass classic. Which is why I’m looking forward to Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation, and if you are too, check out the film’s new trailer and poster.

Directed by Genndy Tartakovsky, who co-wrote the film with Michael McCullers, Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation features the voices of Adam Sandler, Andy Samberg, Selena Gomez, Kevin James, Fran Drescher, Steve Buscemi, Molly Shannon, David Spade, Keegan-Michael Key, and Mel Brooks.

Look for it in theaters on July 13, 2018.

Synopsis:
In Sony Pictures Animation’s Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation, join our favorite monster family as they embark on a vacation on a luxury monster cruise ship so Drac can take a summer vacation from providing everyone else’s vacation at the hotel. It’s smooth sailing for Drac’s Pack as the monsters indulge in all of the shipboard fun the cruise has to offer, from monster volleyball to exotic excursions, and catching up on their moon tans.

But the dream vacation turns into a nightmare when Mavis realizes Drac has fallen for the mysterious captain of the ship, Ericka, who hides a dangerous secret that could destroy all of monsterkind.

Universal Acquires Riley Sager’s Final Girls for Film Adaptation

Published

on

The “final girl” has long been a staple of the horror film genre, and lately there have been several films with just about that very same title focusing on her and/or them. Well, guess what… there’s another one coming as Deadline is reporting that Universal Pictures has won a bidding battle to option rights for Final Girls, the bestselling novel from Riley Sager that hit shelves this past July.

The movie adaptation will be produced by Anonymous Content’s Nicole Clemens along with Sugar23’s Ashley Zalta and Michael Sugar as that stand-alone company continues to ramp up.

Sager’s book centers on Quincy Carpenter, who 10 years ago as a college student went on vacation to Pine Cottage with five friends and came back alone, the only survivor of a horror movie-scale massacre. In an instant, the press dubbed her a “Final Girl,” coined for the group of similar survivors.

We’ll have more for you on this as it comes.
