In advance of its October 23rd Blu-ray and DVD release, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter held a panel at the currently running New York Comic Con previewing and discussing the animated graphic novel The Great Calamity, which will be exclusive to the upcoming Blu-ray release.
The panel included Content Director/Producer Javier Soto, Key Concept Artist Nimit Malavia, and Animation Director Matt Whelan. Two spectacular, brand new poster images, hand-drawn by Malavia in the same vein as the digital graphic novel, were unveiled; and of course we have them right here along with a look at the film’s Digital HD release trailer. It’s available now from the likes of iTunes, Amazon, Xbox, and more.
