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!

I’m ecstatic to learn that Deborah Harkness is coming to

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!

So many great SYFY shows coming to SDCC that I need to clone myself so that I can see everything! I can’t wait to hear about what will happen with my Magician friends (I don’t think they will be safe with a body jumper but my new Queen is OK so I’m good!), when will Wynonna watch her tongue! (don’t TELL people you plan to kill them last it kind of makes them mad), the family reunion on Van Helsing has me all twisted, Z Nation am still waiting for all my friends to meet (dang Alaska is COLD but heating up after the bomb means more zombies! Keep that cute baby safe) and that Black Rainbow (didn’t see THAT coming!), Krypton is really a great exploration of the mythology of Superman and where he came from and I can’t believe EVERYONE is back for the final Sharknado movie (am hoping they will bring a shark or two)! I am excited to meet new TV friends with George R.R. Martin’s Nightflyers getting ready to haunt my TV (still want him to write the final Game of Thrones book .. just saying) and Deadly Class that appeals to my love of posh schools with a science fiction twist can’t wait to hear more about this new graphic novel based series.
