Cory Glaberson and Reel Art (The Comic-Con Experience 2008 #5)

Banner at the Reel Art booth

One of the trademarks of Comic-Con is its nostalgia for what has passed. While this mostly manifests in the plethora of comic book vendors dealing in rare and vintage comics, there are some definite highlights for those of a more cinematic persuasion. One such highlight is Reel Art, a dealer in vintage movie and pop culture memorabilia, and our Comic-Con Experience 2008 #5.

Cory Glaberson is a self-proclaimed pop culture enthusiast: cult television, classic movies, vintage comic books – he loves it all. He loves it so much, in fact, that he’s made it his business. You can’t help but notice the Reel Art booth, since the back of it is lined with posters, many of them beloved classic horror films, which, of course, drew us right in.

Sideshow Collectibles (The Comic-Con Experience 2008 #3)

Sideshow Collectibles booth

Everybody loves toys. Everybody - including Comic-Con. There are entire parts of the Exhibition Floor devoted to toys – action figures, statuettes, plushies, etc. At Comic-Con, toys are everywhere. And, because toys are everywhere, The Comic-Con Experience 2008, Feature #3 is Sideshow Collectibles.

While Sideshow originally got its start making chintzy little toys and figures of pop culture notables, the company has grown and now specializes in high-quality, screen-accurate replicas of well-known genre characters. These figures, statuettes and life-size replicas do not come cheap, ranging in price from $35 for some of the more common, smaller items to thousands of dollars for their more elaborate display pieces.

Cthuliana Corner (The Comic-Con Experience 2008 #1)

Cthuliana Corner - Lovecraft bust

There is nothing, and I mean nothing, that compares to the terrifying awesomeness of Howard Phillips Lovecraft. Oh, sure, there are people who say that he was bland, repetitive, or even cliché – and to them I say, “Bugger off.” Fact of the matter is, I like me some tentacles. Which is why The Comic-Con Experience, Feature #1 is the Cthuliana booth, run by The Source Comics and Games.

Mezco Announces Second Series of "Cinema of Fear" Figures

Mezco is planning on releasing a second set of "Cinema of Fear" figures. The first set consisted of miniature, Lego-like versions of the trio of terror: Jason Vorhees, Leatherface, and Freddy Krueger. Now, Mezco has announced that the second series will consist of the same characters, only in different attire. In this series, Jason is wearing his pre-hockey mask Friday the 13th: Part 2 outfit, Leatherface is wearing his suit from the end of the first Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and Mr. Krueger is dressed in his New Nightmare getup. The current release date for this set is May of 2005. I can't wait.
