Wizard World Conventions to Debut the Horror Pavilion

Wizard World convention

For anyone who may be thinking that Wizard World conventions are only for the capes and tights crowd, think again! For the first time ever, Wizard World Comic Con has partnered with the New York City Horror Film Festival to bring you the debut of the Horror Pavilion at the Anaheim Comic Con, April 16-18, at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California.

The highlight of the event will be the screenings from the Killer Shorts Sudden Death Film Competition. The competition showcases horror and sci-fi short films and allows the audience to select the winners. One winner will be selected in each of the participating cities to become a part of the 2010 NYC Horror Film Festival program later this year.

Terminator interview with Andy MacDonald

Terminator comic

The year is 2029. It’s the year that John Connor, leader of the Resistance, sends Kyle Reese to 1984 to save Sarah Connor from a T-800 with a grudge.

But before all of that happened, Kyle Reese was just another man fighting to survive in a world overrun by a technology that had taken on a life of its own and annihilated civilization.

Who was Kyle before he met John Connor and was thrust through time to face off with a T-800 and fall for a waitress with a destiny? And who were his comrades in arms?

We caught up with artist, Andy MacDonald, to talk about Terminator.

Dantes Inferno Dante Action Figure

Dantes Inferno figure

It’s a new take on the classic literary work, as Dante makes his way through the levels of hell. Figure stands approximately 7-inches tall and is incredibly detailed and poseable. Includes the large scythe weapon which is also poseable (and can be stored on figures back) and the cross weapon (that can be stored on his right leg in a harness). Highly detailed and featuring over 20 points of articulation.

Check out the Dantes Inferno Dante Action Figure.

Some new screenshots of Dantes Inferno have been released.

Dantes Inferno is described as:
An abducted soul. A lifetime of sins. A journey to the depths of despair. Based on the immensely influential classic poem, Dante’s Inferno takes you on an epic quest of vengeance and redemption through the Nine Circles of Hell. You are Dante, a veteran of the Crusades who must chase his beloved Beatrice and try to free her soul from Lucifer’s grasp. As your pursuit takes you deeper into the pits of Hell, you must battle ever more fierce and hideous monsters—while also facing your own sins, a dark family past, and your unforgivable war crimes.

The reanimated brainchild of Adam Miller and Rich Woodall, “ZombieBomb! Dead Not Dead” is the first in a series of ZombieBomb! anthologies featuring top creators putting their spin on the cranium-chomping, lumbering legends. Each creative team involved has crafted their own unique interpretation of the subject matter, ensuring fans a diverse and original experience. From classic horror to offbeat alternative to whimsical comedy, the stories and artwork manage to breathe life into the undead and keep the rotting corpses fresh.

The Littlest Zombie #1 review

Littlest Zombie

In the madness of the Zombie Apocalypse, amid the throngs of living dead and terrified victims, the littlest zombie roams. He’s just an inquisitive chap filled with curiosity about the world on fire around him. Pushed around by his fellow undead (who always get to the brains first), and positively frowned upon by the remaining living citizens, the poor little guy just wants a friend. And maybe something to chew on. Like your face.
