NYCC 2016 Interview: ‘Trollhunters’ Cast & Creators
Pfeff-Bot   |  

Trollhunters roundtable interview

There’s been a lot of buzz surrounding the new Netflix/DreamWorks/Cha Cha Cha Films original animated series Trollhunters, created by visionary director, producer, and writer Guillermo del Toro (Pacific Rim, Hellboy, Pan’s Labyrinth, The Hobbit, et.al.). On Saturday, October 8, del Toro sat down with Geeks Of Doom at New York Comic-Con to tease the show alongside co-executive producers Rodrigo Blaas (WALL-E) and Marc Guggenheim (Arrow), as well as actors Kelsey Grammer (Frasier), Ron Perlman (Hellboy), Charlie Saxton (Betas), and Steven Yeun (The Walking Dead). The protagonist, Jim Lake Jr., is voiced by the late Anton Yelchin, who was spoken of and honored during the roundtable discussion.

Geeks Of Doom’s own Sarah Pfeffer and Athena Costanza Torkel were both in the room for an exclusive look at Trollhunters, which is based on the book co-authored by del Toro. The show premiered after the interview in a special panel, and the cast enjoyed the episode side-by-side with fans for the first time.

NYCC 2016: Photo Gallery: Cosplay, Panels, Convention Floor

NYC 2016 Cosplay

After a few years of going to SDCC and then due to work and tickets being almost impossible to get, took a few years off, this year I was lucky enough to get a 4-day pass to NYCC. So, I packed my bags and headed to New York. I took tons of photos at the Con of the convention floor, panels, and, of course, the cosplay. Check it out here below in the image galleries.

For the most part, my whole time at New York Comic-Con focused around Doctor Who and other BBC America shows. I got to see a panel with a decent Q&A with Matt Smith, Jenna Coleman, and Alex Kingston talking about their time on Doctor Who. I was also able to make it to The Theater at Madison Square Garden for the BBC America showcase, including a early screening of Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency, which I really enjoyed and will be watching once the season starts in a few weeks. I followed that with a Class and Doctor Who panels, giving us little teases of the upcoming series and the Christmas Special for Doctor Who, all about the super heroes.

NYCC 2016: Mad Magazine’s Editor-in-Chief John Ficarra

1950s MAD Logo

My New York Comic-Con 2016 whirlwind this past weekend ended with one of my favorite interviews (Shhh… don’t tell Guillermo del Toro and Steven Yeun aka “Glenn” from The Walking Dead!). Mad Magazine‘s Editor-in-Chief John Ficarra was on hand dispensing comedic wisdom in the midst of a bunch of comic book authors, but I only had eyes for him. I have been reading MAD on and off since the early 1980s, and am a huge fan. So now that everyone is aware of my high-class taste in literature…

Check out the interview below, as well as the cover for a different kind of “MAD” book.

NYCC 2016: Kids HQ – StorySmash & Creative One Comics
Olympus Athens   |  @   |  

StorySmash panel

Sunday was officially Family Day at New York Comic-Con this year (as it is every year), also known in our house as “Take Your Kid To Work Day.” My 12-year old wanted to shop and go to the VR and video game stations. My little one, however, looked forward to dressing up and doing fun things at the workshops. We chose StorySmash for her, and then she insisted on the cartooning workshop (facilitated by the artists and writers of Creative One Comics), ignoring the pull of Legos and her favorite cousin.

Check out StorySmash and Creative One Comics below.

NYCC 2016 Interview: Jelly Belly Wonder Woman Art By Kristen Cumings

Jelly Belly Wonder Woman art

Two of the many, many things I love about New York Comic-Con, which held court at the Javits Center in NYC last weekend, are the uniqueness of the activities and the art. When the two are combined, it makes for an even better (and sometimes delicious) surprise. Booth #455 gave passersby free jelly beans (of which my kids ate quite a few). I got a chance to interview jelly bean artist, Kristen Cumings, who is “one of the only people in the world that uses jelly beans as her art form.” So what was up with Jelly Belly?

Jelly Belly has a broad range of movies represented in their collection, including Finding Dory and Star Wars, and their Hero Collection includes entertainment icons like Superman and Wonder Woman. From gift tins and bags to bean machines and magic wands, each movie collection contains a range of products.

Check out my interview with artist Kristen Cumings and the beautiful images in the image gallery here below.

Shudder horror streaming service

With Halloween quickly approaching the desire the binge-watch horror films is upon us. There is no better time to sign up for Shudder, AMC’s horror streaming service that they debuted in 2015. At New York Comic-Con this weekend, I got a chance to talk with Shudder representatives at their booth on the show floor.

Rest assured there is no better place for horror fans to get their fill of classics, and hard to find rarities than on Shudder. They provide the largest library of horror films, and new movies to their queue each week. Thanks to the service, I was able to see the cult-classic Society as well as the late Herschel Gordon Lewis’ original splatter-fest, Blood Feast.

Teen Wolf roundtable interview, NYCC 2016

With Teen Wolf’s final New York Comic-Con panel in the books, it was a nostalgic and emotional weekend for the fans as well as the cast and crew of the MTV show. A devoted fan of the series myself, I jumped at the chance to sit down with stars Tyler Posey and Holland Roden as well as Executive Producer Jeff Davis (also the creator of Criminal Minds) and hear their perspectives personally. Cast members Linden Ashby, Melissa Ponzio, and Shelley Hennig were also in the room and are included in the photo ops below.
