Earlier today we announced some of the major horror TV panels at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, and now we have another series to add to our list. Beyond headlining a panel on July 24th, “Penny Dreadful” is also branding the lanyards worn by all attendees!
From the Press Release:
We’re excited to announce that “PENNY DREADFUL” will make its SDCC debut as the opening day headliner on Thursday, July 24th, from 6:00-7:00 PM with a panel session in Ballroom 20.
Featured panelists will include series stars Josh Hartnett, Reeve Carney, and Harry Treadaway and series creator, writer, and executive producer John Logan. The panel will be moderated by Emmy Award-nominated actress (and major “Penny Dreadful” fan) Aisha Tyler.
Furthermore, the over 150,000 lanyards worn by all Comic-Con attendees will be branded by “PENNY DREADFUL” (taking over for prior Showtime hit series “Dexter”).
Additionally, there will be talent signings, exclusive merchandise offers, and more throughout the weekend. Fans can visit the Entertainment Earth booth (#2343) to purchase a deluxe deck of tarot cards inspired by the ones used throughout the series along with character action figures, including Ethan Chandler and Vanessa Ives. They can also visit the Titan Books booth (#5537) to purchase special “PENNY DREADFUL” deluxe hardcover editions of Mary Shelleyâ€™s Frankenstein, Bram Stokerâ€™s Dracula, and Oscar Wildeâ€™s A Picture of Dorian Gray, which each contain original black and white illustrations by Martin Stiff, Louie de Martinis, and Ian Bass.
