John Harlan Kim

Baltimore Comic-Con 2012 logo

I’m a huge fan of the Librarians so have been watching John Harlan Kim starring as ‘Ezekiel Jones’ the thief with a heart of gold since episode one. His character growth has delighted me as a character who’s self confidence and general nice ‘bad boy’ had me crushing! Sadly I’m on the west coast but all of my East Coast nerds can head to the Baltimore Comic-Con to see him, artists, cosplayers, fans and buy well … Comic Books! This years the BCC is on September 22-24, 2017 at the Baltimore Convention Center in the Inner Harbor. You can still purchase tickets to attend The Baltimore Comic-Con and maybe meet/greet John Harlan Kim from TNT’s The Librarians.The Librarians BCC Exclusive Cover

“I am a HUGE fan of The Librarians,” said Marc Nathan, promoter of the Baltimore Comic-Con. “This late addition to the show is really exciting, and fans of the show are going to be as thrilled as I am to get to meet John.”

Kim previously completed a series regular role on the iconic Australian series Neighbours as “Dale ‘Macca’ McGregor”, a popular but mischievous high school student who loves to stir up trouble. His additional credits include Steven Spielberg’s miniseries The Pacific for DreamWorks and HBO.
Dynamite Entertainment, which will be exhibiting at the show in Booth #2010, are launching a comic series of The Librarians, where John will be supporting the book. A Baltimore Comic-Con exclusive cover will be available for sale at the show, perfect for getting autographs!

John Harlan Kim currently stars as a series regular on Dean Devlin’s TNT series The Librarians, a follow up to the network’s hit movie trilogy starring Noah Wyle. The series centers on four ordinary people with extraordinary talents who are recruited to work at an ancient organization hidden beneath the Metropolitan Public Library. Together they solve impossible mysteries, fight supernatural threats, and recover powerful artifacts from around the world. John plays “Ezekiel Jones”, the cocky but likable youngest member of the Librarians who is a master of new technologies, aficionado of old classic crimes, and who fancies himself an international man of mystery.

In the coming weeks, look for more announcements from the Baltimore Comic-Con. We are looking forward to highlighting our guests, industry exclusives, and programming. The latest developments can always be found on our website, Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook pages

It’s been almost 30 years since the premier of Star Trek the Next Generation September 1987 and to celebrate CBS Studios and Shmaltz Brewing Company is releasing Star TrekSymbiosis® Image result for star trek the next generation season 1

The beer made it’s debut at Comic-Con International and official launch at Star Trek Las Vegas convention but it will now be available to beer drinkers and Trekkies nationally in 4 packs at stores and select bars on draft in 35 states. In 2016, Shmaltz debuted two critically acclaimed Star Trek Golden Anniversary Ales to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the iconic franchise, Star Trek. 2017 brings triple the excitement with the limited release of three Star Trek specialty beers rolling out throughout the year. Under license by CBS Consumer Products, the first extraterrestrial elixir of 2017 was Star Trek Klingon Imperial Porter® (7.3% ABV). Star Trek Symbiosis® transports itself to retail outlets and bars within Shmaltz’s expansive distribution network. To find a Shmaltz distributor in your state, please visit: shmaltzbrewing.com/distributors
Star Trek: The Next Generation 30th Anniversary Ale — Symbiosis
For over 10,000 years a symbiotic relationship has thrived between yeast and sugar, malts and hops, beer and beer lovers. Shmaltz’s latest Star Trek release celebrates this benevolent co-existence and pays homage to the 30th Anniversary of Star Trek: Next Generation, and the episode, “Symbiosis”. In this episode, two different races from the same galaxy have seemingly found a way to peacefully coexist and work together for the betterment of all. However, we eventually learn that their relationship is based on the false promise of felicium, which is sold by the Brekkians to the Ornarans. This forces Captain Picard to make an excruciating choice: uphold the Prime Directive, or save an entire civilization from exploitation. In this 30th Anniversary Ale, the Shmaltz crew has upheld its Prime Directive to boldly unite hops, malts, yeast, and water in the pursuit of craft beer excellence. Share a bottle of this limited edition commemorative ale with your own federation. Make It So!
Image result for star trek convention symbiosis beerStar Trek Symbiosis® Hoppy Wheat Ale pours a pale yellow with a thick white head. A generous amount of hops provide flavors and aromas of ripe lemon and pleasant herbs, giving Symbiosis® a dry, crisp and clean mouthfeel. Symbiosis® is a limited-edition, smooth, easy-drinking ale with prominent wheat maltiness and distinct flavors and aromas of Warrior, Centennial, and Amarillo hops, making it the perfect refreshment for enjoying a Star Trek marathon with fellow Trekkies or at your next summer bottle share.

About Shmaltz Brewing Company
Founder and owner Jeremy Cowan established Shmaltz Brewing in San Francisco in 1996. The first 100 cases of He’brew Beer® were hand-bottled and delivered throughout the Bay Area from the back of his Grandmother’s Volvo. Shmaltz Brewing now sells He’brew Beer across 35 states, through 40 wholesalers and in nearly 5,000 retailers.

After 17 years of being an outspoken cheerleader for contract brewing, Cowan and staff opened their own New York State production brewery in 2013 in Clifton Park, 10 minutes north of Albany. Shmaltz’s home boasts a 50-barrel brewhouse with 30,000 barrels of annual capacity and packages a diverse and tasty variety of core and seasonal favorites in 12 and 22-ounce bottles and kegs. The Shmaltz Tasting Room is open five days a week (Wed-Sun) and offers tours, barrel-aged previews, beer-to-go, and special releases.

RateBeer.com ranked Shmaltz as one of the “Top 100 Brewers in the World” in 2013, and the brewery brought home 10 gold and 6 silver medals from the World Beer Championships in the past several years.

It’s the sixth and final season of The Mindy Project on Hulu which means we will be without the series that had a stylish female lead who didn’t compromise about being professional AND embracing color!

 

“Costume designing The Mindy Project has been a career defining experience for me, I could never have imagined how magical this project would be. Looking back over six seasons and 117 episodes, I am very proud of the colorful, fashionable world I was able to create and share with the fans of The Mindy Project. This exhibit is a gift to the fans who have been so supportive all these years,” said costume designer Salvador Perez.

 

To celebrate this milestone the Paley Center for Media in Beverly Hills will have “The Mindy Project”: Six Seasons of Style Curated by Costume Designer Salvador Perez interactive exhibit with cast costumes from past and present seasons. It will feature life-size episodic photography, costume sketches and behind-the-scenes video segments that will take visitors inside Mindy Lahiri’s fun, fabulous and oh-so-stylish closet! The first-of-its-king exhibit is curated by the series’ Emmy-nominated Costume Designer and President of the Costume Designers Guild, Salvador Perez and will run exclusively at the Paley Center beginning August 26, 2017.

 

“We’re thrilled to give fans of The Mindy Project the rare up-close opportunity to see the fun and vibrant costumes worn by the loveable Mindy Lahiri,” said Maureen J. Reidy, the Paley Center’s President & CEO. “This exclusive exhibit is one of the many examples of the unique, artistic, and immersive exhibit experiences the Paley Center provides to visitors year round.”

 

“Salvador Perez is an incredible artist who matched Mindy Lahiri’s larger-than-life personality with couture beyond any woman’s dreams. You may not approve of everything Mindy says, but you always approve of her fashion,” said The Mindy Project creator, writer, executive producer and star Mindy Kaling.

The final, sixth season of The Mindy Project premieres Tuesday, September 12 on Hulu, with new episodes streaming weekly on Tuesdays. All episodes of seasons one through five are currently streaming on Hulu.

 

 

In addition to the exhibit, the cast and creative team of The Mindy Project, including Mindy Kaling, will appear at the Paley Center on September 8, as part of PaleyFest Fall Previews.  The evening will include a special preview of the upcoming season and an intimate discussion with the cast and creative team, followed by an audience Q & A.

She’s done it! After five seasons of The Mindy Project, Mindy’s (Kaling) bagged herself a husband.

As Jeremy (Ed Weeks) and Anna (Rebecca Rittenhouse) navigate the uncertainties of a new relationship, Tamra (Xosha Roquemore) signs on to be Lahiri Fertility’s newest (and top-secret) patient. And as The Mindy Project‘s hilarious final season draws to a close, will Morgan (Ike Barinholtz), Jody (Garret Dillahunt) and the rest of the doctors and nurses find their happily ever after?

I’ve decided that I deserve to buy 1 or 3 items this year at SDCC. After seeing what BBC America is bringing it looks like I’ll have to bring some extra cash for my Sherlock, Doctor Who and Orphan Black love!! I can get a Red Dalek (heck my name is Cherry) or wear my fandom with a t-shirt! So many great choices! Here are the items that I want to bring home ….

 I must admit to a major weakness for Daleks and Cybermen despite dreaming of being a Doctor or at the least a companion! I wonder if they will have anything with my personal favorite ‘Martha Jones’! Since it’s the final season of Orphan Black am thinking will pick up a Funko of one of the girls!

 

What would you pick up from the booth?

I’m very excited about HISTORY partnership with Comic-Con with the very first EVER external bag-check Knightfall‘s Guardians of the Gear at the Gaslamp MLK Promenade from July 20 – 23. ALL SDCC badge-holders will be able to store their bags for free next to the Holy Grail and under the guardianship of the Knights Templar. While you store your bags you can get a peak at the new History channel series Knightfall with personal photos of fans with the Knights Templar, a chance to see a snippet of the new show and a preview of the new mobile game Knightfall: Rivals on the Steam Platform™. They will also be distributing a prequel comic book from Titan Comics “Truth & Lies,” that follows the Knights during the siege of the Acre in 1291 as they try to protect the most important relic in all of Christendom – the Holy Grail.

“Knightfall: Guardians of the Gear” – July 20-23 – MLK Promenade

Knightfall

  • Thursday 7/20 11AM – 7PM

  • Friday 7/21 11AM – 7PM

  • Saturday 7/22 11AM – 7PM

  • Sunday 7/23 11AM – 5PM

KNIGHTFALL goes deep into the clandestine world of this legendary brotherhood of warrior monks. From their battles in the Holy Land, to their complex relationship with the King of France, to the betrayal that would ultimately lead to their tragic dissolution, the story of the Knights Templar has never been fully told until now.

“Knightfall: Guardians of the Gear” – July 20-23 – MLK Promenade

HISTORY is setting the stage for SDCC attendees to discover its newest drama series “Knightfall” before it premieres by offering an essential service that is new to the convention – “Knightfall: Guardians of the Gear.” The Holy Grail required protection of the Knights Templar, and SDCC attendees can count on that same protection for their own personal belongings by storing them in HISTORY’s “Knightfall: Guardians of the Gear.” Located along the MLK Promenade in the Gaslamp Quarter, our knights will guard attendees swag while they explore the rest of Comic-Con.

Additionally at the Gaslamp activation location, attendees will be able to take a photo with the Knights Templar, watch a sneak peek of HISTORY’s newest drama series “Knightfall” and preview the Knightfall: Rivals video game on Steam Platform™, coming soon on mobile. Attendees will also be able to pick up a comic book from Titan Comics inspired by “Knightfall” entitled “Truth & Lies,” a prequel to the events in the forthcoming series that follows the Knights during the siege of the Acre in 1291 as they try to protect the most important relic in all of Christendom – the Holy Grail.

About “Knightfall”

“Knightfall” follows the Knights Templar, the most powerful, wealthy and mysterious military order of the Middle Ages, entrusted with protecting Christianity’s most prized relic—the Holy Grail—and harboring secrets capable of destroying the Church itself. “Knightfall” goes deep into the inner sanctum of the clandestine world of this legendary brotherhood of warrior monks. From their battles in the Holy Land, to their clash with the King of France, to the betrayal that would ultimately lead to their tragic dissolution on Friday the 13th—a date which became synonymous with bad luck—the story of the Knights Templar has never been fully told until now. “Knightfall” takes viewers inside the world to find out who these knights were, how they lived, and what they died believing.

“Knightfall” is an A+E Studios production in association with The Combine and Midnight Radio. Don Handfield and Richard Rayner serve as creators and executive producers, with Oscar® and Golden Globe® nominee Jeremy Renner also serving as executive producer. Dominic Minghella is executive producer and showrunner. Executive producers from Midnight Radio are Jeff Pinkner, Andre Nemec, Josh Appelbaum and Scott Rosenberg. Barry Jossen and Douglas Mackinnon serve as executive producers. The drama stars Tom Cullen (“Downton Abbey”), Pádraic Delaney (The Wind That Shakes the Barley, “The Tudors”), Simon Merrells(“Spartacus,” “Dominion”), Olivia Ross (War and Peace), Ed Stoppard (“The Crown”), Sabrina Bartlett (“DaVinci’s Demons”), Jim Carter (“Downton Abbey”) and Julian Ovenden (“Downton Abbey”).

The Profiles in History’s Hollywood Auction 89 was just a few weeks ago on June 26 – 28th and comprised of the definitive collection Battlestar Galactica & Buck Rogers spaceship filming miniatures. It was 23 spaceships all belonging one Boston based collector named Gary Cannavo that was purchased over a period of 25 years. The miniatures were designed and built by the creators who worked on Star Wars. These are from series that still used the art technology of miniatures before Hollywood switched to CGI.

The owners hope that the collection will stay in tact and be exhibited for fans to be able to enjoy them so they decided to sell in a single lot for an estimated $1,500,000 – $2,000,000

Highlights from the collection include the screen used heart and soul of the Battlestar Galactica rag-tag fleet, the Galactica and the screen used, Battlestar Galactica Colonial Viper. From Buck Rogers, Buck’s screen used Star Fighter and Buck’s screen used Ranger 3.
