Three Things Early Extra Things to be aware of at the 2011 New York Comic Con

Jane Espenson, one of Joss Whedon’s right hands and also the creator of WAREHOUSE 13 has developed and is debuting a sitcom web series called HUSBANDS on September 13.  I can only assume that part of her interaction at the con will be a panel about it or some kind of marketing.  At least I’m hoping so as the show is right up my alley being an LGBT themed comedy.  I also hope Cheeks will be there too.  Not the artist/designer Sean “Cheeks” Galloway (who I’m also a fan of), but the writer/actor/musician Brad Bell.

Chad Michael Murray, former teen heartthrob, famous for roles on Gilmore Girls and Dawson’s Creek before his six season stint on One Tree Hill and scheduled to return for the final season will be debuting a graphic novel he states is 8 years in the making.  It’s called EVERLAST and features artwork from popular  illustrator and painter J.K. Woodward.

The role-playing/LARP/I don’t know exactly but it looks awesome  indie film UNICORN CITY will be screening at NYCC.  I wish I had more details, but that’s what I can confirm.

    They’ve confirmed via twitter – all three cast members of Husbands will be with Jane at NYC ComicCon.

    Thank you for this information.

    This becomes the problem with too many social networking sites to keep track of and to also have people report on/to.

  • My name is Adrian Lefler and I’m the co-writer/Producer of Unicorn City. The trailer doesn’t do the film justice. We’ve screened it at two other comic cons and people went nuts over it. One guy was laughing so hard he was slapping himself in the face… seriously… it’s a great geek comedy. We shot the film in Utah. My Brother Bryan Lefler, the director, went to school with Jared Hess and a lot of people have (for better or worse) compared it to Napoleon Dynamite. I would have to agree partially. The humor is very sophisticated and spatial. It’s not a kick you in the balls then laugh kind of comedy. It’s quirky and endearing. We have been accepted to a few festivals and hope to release towards the end of the year. You can check out the film trailers on our facebook page. Go to http://www.facebook dot com/UnicornCity

    Thanks for the interest and feel free to contact me if you want to talk further about it.
