Phoenix Comicon 2010 logo

Phoenix Comicon is this weekend and I'll be in attendance on behalf of Classic-Horror. Like last year, I've been asked to participate in a couple of panels.

Thursday:

Not Another Remake! (Room 152, 8-9PM) -- Join Arizona's top Horror Film aficionados for a spirited discussion of the pros and cons of the Horror Film movement of remakes. Hot on the release of the "Nightmare on Elm Street" remake, the discourse is sure to be lively! Why so many remakes? Panelists: Danny Marianino, Nate Yapp, Jeff Dolniak, David Hayes

Wil Wheaton Interview

Nate interviews Wil Wheaton

As an avid follower of author/actor Wil Wheaton's blog for the past several years, I've read all about his interest in science fiction, gaming, comic books, and other geeky pursuits. But until a casual conversation I had with him at Phoenix Comicon this year, I had no idea that he was also a fellow horror fan. Later that day, Wil graciously took a few minutes of his time to talk with me about his love of horror and some of his favorite films in the genre.(read more...)

Phoenix Comicon 2009: Horror Panels

Nate and Steve Ringgenberg at the Not Dead Yet Horror Classics panel

Apparently I know nothing of what a convention panel is supposed to look like. I'd always thought of them as marketing tools -- years of attending San Diego Comic-Con will do that. At Phoenix Comicon, however, the panels were more esoteric, devoted to actually fan discussion mixed with nostalgia. There were three panels devoted to horror movies -- one general horror panel, one on horror classics, and one (ostensibly) about horror comedy. I had the honor and joy of being asked to participate in the latter two.

Still Fresh: Horror Films

Panelists: David Hayes (actor/writer/producer, Back Woods), Erin Gray (actress, Buck Rogers TV series, Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday), Dean Lorey (writer, Jason Goes to Hell, The Nightmare Academy novels)(read more...)

Phoenix Comicon 2009: Zombie Events

Zombie Walk #2

The 2009 Phoenix Comicon is over; the last of the attendees has stumbled away from the Mesa Convention Center, heavy with trade paperbacks, collectibles, and anime DVDs procured on the convention floor. This was my first year at the convention -- in the past, my own experience with such events was limited to San Diego's massive Comic-Con International, which annually boasts more con-goers than my old hometown of Davenport, Iowa had people.(read more...)

Brian Pulido Interview

Brian Pulido at Phoenix Comicon 2009

Comic fans have known Brian Pulido for years as the co-creator of characters like Lady Death and Evil Ernie. He's also worked on tie-in comics for horror franchises like Friday the 13th, Texas Chainsaw Massacre and A Nightmare on Elm Street. As a resident of Arizona, he helped co-found the International Horror and Sci-Fi Film Festival in the Phoenix area. Now, he's turning his attentions to the realm of film direction, having just (and we do mean just) put the finishing touches on his feature debut, The Graves.(read more...)
