New York Comic Con 2018 Recap
New York Comic Con has come and gone, setting forth much to look forward to in the coming months. Fall and Winter are packed with new reveals and announcements, with some of the highlights including a first glance at the new season of American Gods and a look at another Neil Gaiman series Good Omens.
The cast of Star Trek: Discovery also made an appearance. Season 2 is set to premiere on January 17, 2019, and will consist of 13 episodes.
Guillermo Del Toro was part of a panel for the upcoming launch of DreamWorks’ Tales of Arcadia: 3Below, a Netflix Original Series. The series follows two royal teenage aliens and their bodyguard who flee a surprise takeover of their home planet by an evil dictator and crash land in Arcadia. Now on the run from intergalactic bounty hunters, they struggle to blend in and adapt to the bizarre world of high school all the while attempting to repair their ship so they can return and defend their home planet. 3Below is the second chapter in the Tales of Arcadia series.
Fans at the panel got an exclusive look at the first episode.
Some of the cast of Dragon Ball Super was also in attendance, with both English and Japanese voice actors joining a panel to discuss the upcoming movie. Dragon Ball Super: Broly is slated for a Western release in select theaters January 16th, 2019. The announcement came alongside a new trailer.
New York Comic Con is about the comics, in case you might have forgotten! Dark Horse had a slew of comics to put on display, including Unknown 9 Archives, new The Legend of Korra, Fight Club 3, and ventures into video game universes Minecraft and StarCraft.
Legion M–the world’s first fan-owned entertainment company–shared details for Girl With No Name, a female-led western action-adventure movie produced by Co-Op Entertainment’s Laura Ivey (Walking Out, Ithaca) and directed by Co-Op cofounder Tanya Wexler (Hysteria). Legion M is the project’s executive producer. The Girl With No Name universe will first be introduced in Spring 2019 as a special 40-page comic book.
Image Comics arrived with a massive roster of talent, including Anthony Del Col (Son of Hitler), Marjorie Liu (Monstress), Matthew Rosenberg (What’s The Furthest Place From Here), and Dean Haspiel (The Red Hook).
NYCC proved that there’s plenty to look forward to during the upcoming holiday season and beyond. More than enough to hold us over until next year’s San Diego Comic Con.
