SDCC 2017: Famous Monsters

Comic-Con 2017

Famous Monsters has come to San Diego Comic-Con once again, and they’ve scheduled several panels featuring special guests and announcements!





Famous Monsters Stake of the Union 2017
Friday July 21, 2017 5:30pm – 6:30pm
Room 26AB

Famous Monsters of Filmland has spanned nearly 60 years with its game-changing genre magazine, groundbreaking cover art, record-setting fan events, original comic books, and more. And 2017 promises to be the most exciting year yet as FM expands into new forms of media, including syndicated television! Publisher Philip Kim, editor Holly Interlandi, and associate editor Joe Moe will welcome special panelists to tease future projects, give exclusive art reveals, and maybe wax a little philosophical on Frankenstein.

From Comics to Virtual Reality with American Gothic Press
Saturday July 22, 2017 7:00pm – 8:00pm
Room 23ABC

A good story should work in any medium, and comics can make a great starting point for other forms of entertainment-television, film, and more recently, virtual reality gaming. Join American Gothic Press publisher Philip Kim, editor-in-chief Holly Interlandi, and top creators for a discussion on how to best adapt your panels to this rapidly developing art form.

Also, don’t miss Warner Archive on a special Saturday panel!

Warner Archive’s Monsters From Hell
Saturday July 22, 2017 11:30am – 12:30pm
Room 5AB

Warner Archive Collection (WAC), Trailers From Hell, & Famous Monsters of Filmland join forces to spotlight some of the most beloved (and sometimes overlooked) monster/dinosaur films of the past 70 years. Revel in WAC’s high-definition remastering of cult classics ranging from When Dinosaurs Ruled the Earth, The Valley of Gwangi, Demon Seed and From Hell It Came to some soon-to-be-released on Blu-ray surprises. Trailers From Hell film gurus Mike Mendez (Big Ass Spider, Tales of Halloween), Darren Bousman (Saw II, Saw II, Saw IV), and Academy Award nominated screenwriter Josh Olson (A History of Violence) join WAC podcasters Matthew Patterson & DW Ferranti to delve deep into insights, stories and glimpses behind the scenes of these fan favorites. Gary Miereanu moderates the proceedings.

Famous Monsters also presents their exclusive set of soft vinyl (sofubi) variant monster figures from SFBi and Poplife, available only at San Diego Comic-Con. Sculpted based on designs by Rob Prior and DBL TRBL, these collectors items — “Renkon”, “Noname”, “Evo Apes”, and “Terror Twins” — are unique and original custom designs created only for Famous Monsters, and are available in extremely limited quantities at the convention.

I never stand in front of the elevator doors when they open. All because of the movie The Departed.
