Comic-Con 2013: Holliston – Inside the Laughs, Screams, Metal, and Geekery!

Holliston TNThere’s absolutely no way I would ever miss seeing the man I look up to the most in the industry today, the hardest working man in Hollywood, creator/star Adam Green (Hatchet) of Fearnet’s Holliston TV series.  So much so that I actually made a special trip up to Sails Pavillion today at 11 AM to personally say hello before tonight’s Comic-Con 2013 panel in Room 24 ABC.  Cast members Laura Ortiz (Happy Endings) and Oderus Urungus (GWAR), director Sean Becker (The Guild) and fan-favorite moderator Alison Haislip (The Voice) were all in attendance tonight at the 8:30 PM panel.  Sadly, Dee Snyder could not make it due to a concert he was performing.  Boo!  But that’s okay!  It’s Holliston folks!  So much fun to be had despite the missing others!  In all honesty,with the exception of the sad goodbyes said to the cast of Dexter in Hall H tonight, Holliston was my favorite panel of the day at Thursday’s Comic-Con 2013.  Read all about it here!

batmanHere is something that I am happy to spread more knowledge of, as I have been following this project for some time.  I know I am not wrong in saying that we at Why So Blu are big Batman fans and look forward to future adventures involving him, let alone rewatching and possibly even rediscovering things about the Caped Crusader that continue to entertain us.  Legends of the Knight is an upcoming documentary film that is focused on how Batman has been a hero for many people in real life.  Filmmaker Brett Culp has set out to make a film that goes over the cultural impact that Batman has had over the year and thanks to a successful Kickstarter campaign, the film will be released to the public.  Portions of the documentary film Legends of the Knight will debut at a SDCC panel on Friday, July 29 at 10:30am in room 26AB.  The independent, not-for-profit film explores the inspirational impact of Batman and the power of heroic storytelling.  Read on to learn more about this project/event.
