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.
