The zombies are back and this fall with Black Ops 4 Zombies. It’s the 10th anniversary of Call of Duty Zombies and they are celebrating at Comic-Con. We get to meet new characters and three zombie playing levels that will have old and new fans ready to play. Everyone can play since it will be released on Playstation 4, Xbox One, and PC (available on Battle.net gaming platform) on October 12th. The multiplayer game experience in Black Ops brings characters, locations, weapons and gear from previous games as well as a new Battle Royale-inspired mode that looks crazy fun. The game has specialists with unique weapons/equipment for each one, able to better play as a team because the game is designed to combine specialists with abilities to strategically superior to individual play, the movements have evolved so combat is fast, fluid and is more grounded (no thrust-jumps or wall running) AND a new manual health system that allows players to choose when to regenerate health. Black Ops 4 Zombies is well ALL about the zombie plates so new characters, three sets (RMS Titanic, ancient Rome in a COLISEUM, and purgatory dimension of Alcatraz with previous zombie storyline characters) and the freedom of being able to customize options that fit your gaming style and skills to allow you to make the game your own.

Black Ops 4 Zombies: Scarlett Rhodes is trying to figure out what happened to her dad. She has 3 loyal friends by her side to fight the zombies and find a relic that has the power to destroy humanity.

Black Ops 4 Zombies has 3 play modes with multiplayer, Zombies and Blackout .. I’m all about the zombies so can’t wait to try that out! Even more exciting is that Call of Duty for the first time will now be available on Blizzard Entertainment’s online gaming platform battle.net 

How do you want to play?

I’m fangirling SOOOO hard about this years FanSets and Warner Bros. 2nd year of collectible pins and bags combo! All of the San Diego Comic- Con’s official 18 carry-all bags this year will have one of 12 different exclusive FanSets DC Comics super hero pins featuring highly detailed heads of such iconic super heroes as Batman, Superman, Black Lightning and Wonder Woman. Even if you aren’t attending SDCC fanboys/fangirls can buy one of the 5 companion pin designs only available on fansets.com. Fans are still trying to buy pins/bags from the first year of the collaboration last!

“We are proud to be returning as the provider of the gift pins for the 2018 SDCC with Warner Bros. It’s a great compliment to the quality and collectability of our pins that we were asked to be involved again for the second year in a row. Warner is a great partner to work with and we are proud of our association with them.”  Lew Halboth, Partner, FanSets.

So what bag and pin do you wish you could grab? I kind of want the Black Lightening bag/pin and if I can’t get that than the Young Justice or Teen Titans Go! bags and the pin maybe Superman?

Tom Taylor is coming to San Diego Comic-Con and bringing his Graphic Novel and world premier of Toy Line from Simba Toys.

The Deep started out as a graphic novel series that won the Aurealis Award co-created by New York Times Bestselling comic author and screenwriter Tom Taylor (All-New Wolverine, Earth 2, Superior Iron Man, Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight, Injustice: Gods Among Us, Star Wars: Blood Ties) and co-created by artist James Brouwer (Justice League Beyond).

The Deep has gone from graphic novel, to animated series and now 4-D theatrical experience ‘The Deep: Mystery of the Ancient Amulet’, and fans in the U.K. and Germany recently enjoyed interactive entertainment experiences of The Deep at over 20 SEA LIFE aquariums, produced in collaboration with Merlin Entertainments Group. It’s also spawned a music soundtrack from seasons one and two from Air-Edel Records!

The series is about the diverse Nekton family—a brilliant team of underwater explorers. With state-of-the-art technology and an unquenchable thirst for discovery, the Nektons explore the mysterious depths of the ocean, where most of our world lies unexplored and unexplained. Mr. Taylor will be at the BOOM! Studios booth #2229 to sign copies of his original graphic novels and the new toy line from Simba Toys Thursday to Sunday at SDCC. Simba Toys is the master toy partner with figures, playsets and role-play toys that will debut in  Germany, Austria, Switzerland, UK, and Nordic countries in Fall 2018. In Germany they will also include outdoor, die-cast and radio-controlled vehicles and wheeled toys in 2019. Graphic novels and Simba toys are available for purchase at the Booth for him to sign.

The Deep has won numerous awards including the 50th Annual AWGIE Awards in Australia for Children’s Television (5-14 years old), the 2017 Kidscreen Award for Best New Series (Kids Category) and the Golden Sparrow Award at the 2017 German Children’s Media Festival. You can enjoy Seasons one and two of The Deep on broadcasters and streaming services in more than 130 markets where it has reached kids who have fallen in love with the series and graphic novels. You can find the series streaming on the Universal Kids network in the U.S. at 7pm, Netflix (U.S.), ABC ME (Australia), CBBC (UK), Family CHRGD (Canada), YLE (Finland) and Biggs (Portugal). You can find the series broadcast on board for season two include Super RTL (Germany), Nickelodeon (Greece), NRK Super (Norway), POP (Italy), RTBF’s OUFtivi (Belgium), MBC3 (Middle East), Minimax (CEE), KidZone TV (Baltics), Hop! (Israel), SVT (Sweden), TSR (Switzerland), SRC (French Canada), and Zap (Angola and Mozambique).

PANELS HOSTED BY IMAGE COMICS:
Thursday, July 19 @ 2:00 – 3:00 p.m., Room 23ABC
#WeBelieve in Fantasy                        

Creators conjure magic on a monthly basis, stretching the boundaries of reality to explore resonant themes under a veneer of high fiction. This group of creators has taken a legacy of wands, wizards, and incantations and tailored it to a modern context, where shape-shifting teen baristas search for missing love and reckless rockers parlay with infernal forces. Let this panel of spellbinding talent, including Sam Humphries (BLACKBIRD), Grace Ellis (MOONSTRUCK), Jeremy Haun (THE REALM), Johnnie Christmas (FIREBUG), Megan Hutchison (ROCKSTARS), and other special guests enchant you as they explain the alchemy behind their latest comics.

Friday, July 20 @ 12:00 – 1:00 p.m., Room 23ABC
#WeBelieve in Horror    

Image Comics has ushered in a new era of horror with cerebral writers and visceral artists elevating sequential-art dread to claustrophobic heights. From Jeff Lemire‘s atmospheric character piece, GIDEON FALLS, to John Layman‘s kaiju free-for-all, LEVIATHAN, comics are evolving terror to new personal, socially minded levels. Join a roster of the most sinister storytellers including Pornsak Pichetshote, Aaron Campbell, and José Villarubbia (INFIDEL), Will Dennis (the editor of WYTCHES, GIDEON FALLS), and other special guests to discover how they’re altering an entire genre.

Saturday, July 21 @ 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m., Room 7AB
#WeBelieve in Suspense                        

Comic scribes wield character, dialogue, and panels with clockwork precision, leading readers through a gauntlet of plot beats designed to ratchet tension and escalate stakes. In concert with artists, these storytellers operate outside budget constraints to orchestrate explosive dramas without any limits save their own imaginations. Listen to a panel of thrill gurus including Donny Cates (REDNECK), Mirka Andolfo(UNNATURAL), Steve Orlando (CRUDE), Jacob Semahn (NO. 1 WITH A BULLET), Megan Hutchison (ROCKSTARS), and Dean Haspiel (THE RED HOOK) as they deconstruct their approach to weaving the tightest suspense in comics.
 
Sunday, July 22 @ 1:45 – 2:45 p.m., Room 5AB
#WeBelieve in Craft                         

Image hosts a stable of creators who have honed their skills through countless comics, publishers, and media. With their creator-owned projects, these writers and artists build on expansive careers to deliver the apex of comics craftsmanship. Join a murderer’s row of career myth-makers including Joe Casey (NEW LIEUTENANTS OF METAL, MCMLXXV), Justin Greenwood (THE LAST SIEGE), Kickliy (PERDY), and Shannon Wheeler (MEMOIRS OF A VERY STABLE GENIUS) as they chart the paths they traveled to arrive at their current projects.

Add to your calendar the most exciting news! Deborah Harkness will have a panel discussing her beloved trio of novels “All Souls Trilogy,” (A Discovery of Witches, Shadow of Night & The Book of Life) that sold more than 3.7 million copies through 37 different publishers and will be a new television series in the UK (hopefully eventually making it’s way to USA) based on the first novel. Writing has kept her busy with her newest novel released May 2018 The World of All Souls: The Complete Guide to A Discovery of Witches, Shadow of Night, and The Book of Life, a book the deeply explores the mythology of All Souls Trilogy that enriched the modern fairy tale with character bios, maps, recipes, the science behind creatures, magic, and alchemy with her delightful prose interweaved with a historian’s detail.

Ms. Harkness has been working with the production company Bad Wolf to bring A Discovery of Witches to television this fall with distribution by Sky One all the while juggling a new novel called Times Convert that will be release this fall 2018 that takes place in the “The All Souls Trilogy,” universe!

How or should I say WHO will you Purge??  USA Network’s immersive activation and panel for the new television series USA Network THE PURGE (TV Series) is a continuation of the film series that’s a world wide phenomenon that will be killing on USA Network on Tuesday, September 4 at 10/9c.

America’s first “Purge City” store that allows you to stock up for your ‘nothing is illegal’ night of mayhem opens on July 19th in the Gaslamp District (no badge required). “Purge City” staff can help Purgers stalk up to either hide or mayhem with everything from energy drinks to candles and more!

Purgers can have a fun filled shopping experience with Purge photo opportunities, learn the Purge History of the ‘New Founding Fathers of America’, the Staten Island experiment and annual Purge Nights. “Purge City” will be open for business at 215 Tony Gwynn Drive— from Thursday, July 19 through Saturday, July 21 from 11 AM until 7 PM and Sunday, July 22 from 11 AM until 4 PM.
Based on the hit movie franchise from Blumhouse Productions, The Purge revolves around a 12-hour period when all crime, including murder, is legal. Set in an altered America ruled by a totalitarian political party, the series follows several seemingly unrelated characters living in a small city. As the clock winds down, each character is forced to reckon with their past as they discover how far they will go to survive the night.

The Purge is written and executive produced by the film franchise creator James DeMonaco and led by Jason Blum. Additionally, the entire team behind the blockbuster franchise ‎are on board to executive produce: Michael Bay with Brad Fuller and Andrew Form under the Platinum Dunes banner and Sebastien K.
