The original celebrity fanboy, Kevin Smith, currently host of Comic Book Men for AMC, tweeted about experiencing a sever heart attack last night. Smith, 47, expanded on the event on a FB post – he was in the middle of taping the upcoming Kevin Smith Live! at the Alex Theater in Glendale. The title almost become terribly ironic, […]
Twitter and Tumblr have a new sweetheart, and his name is Winston Duke. In his very first film role, Duke made an indelible impression on moviegoers as M’Baku, leader of the Jabari tribe. Even in a cast loaded with charisma and stunning good looks, Duke’s witty, vegetarian, gorilla-bemasked challenger made a massive impression appearing in […]
It was a big weekend for people who wanted to have their photo taken with Gal Gadot or Henry Cavill. The two stars rarely show up at conventions for signings and photo ops – I believe it was Cavill’s first time as a signer – and the added presence of their fellow Justice League stars […]
If you told me two tough guy nerdlebrities had thrown down in a comic-con green room, I’d think. “Ya right.” Until there’s video. The Blast reports that it all went down at the La Mole Comic Con in Mexico City this weekend. In one corner, Jason David Frank, 44, and former Green Power Ranger, […]
Twin Peaks siren Sherilyn Fenn, aka Audrey Horne, has joined the Long Beach Comic Con as a celeb guest. The show takes place September 2-3 at the Long Beach Convention Center. This is a medium sized show that has strong comics content with just the right amount of celebrities, all in a very convenient location.
After a long, eventful, exhausting convention season, it pretty much wraps up for a few weeks, at least in NYC with WinterCon, which is more of a SF con, but has a significant artist alley/comics contingent. The big draw here is a Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior reunion with the first convention appearance EVER […]
How much are nerdlebrities making from signing autographs at comic cons and other pop culture events? Plenty. As in, more than they make from acting. And this not so secret underground economy is changing how actors in hit shows approach their careers.
Eventually we speak about their Torchwood comics, of course, but that’s an oversimplification of the interview which stretched way over time (thanks Titan!) and covered John’s not-so-secret costume to walk the floor of SDCC, how their familial relationship helps them be more honest about their work, and their intimate knowledge of each other’s bathroom habits. Try not to fall in love with these rambunctious siblings, I dare you.
It was quite a gathering of comics talent for last night’s Suicide Squad premiere in New York. The crew gathered for the above photo before hand, including many creators who had a hand in various characters from the film. From left to right: Geoff Johns, Jimmy Palmiotti, Misty Lee (in the back), Amanda Conner (wearing […]
Call this not a con war but an offsite war and not even really a war, but…it’s getting so you can’t swing a cat without hitting some kind of nerdlebrity activation around Comic-Con. The best known is the long running Nerd HQ which this year wil; be held once again at the Children’s Museum just […]
