Season 4 of “Comic Book Men” will premiere on AMC on Sunday, October 12, 2014 at midnight ET/PT.
Master fanboy Kevin Smith and the charismatic men of Jay and Silent Bob’s Secret Stash are back for a fourth season of antics and fun in AMC’s unscripted series “Comic Book Men.” Join Kevin, Walt, Bryan, Michael and Ming as they geek-out over rare pop culture memorabilia and welcome new friends to the Red Bank, NJ comic store including fanboy icons Billy Dee Williams (Star Wars), Adam West (“Batman”), Ernie Hudson (Ghostbusters), Butch Patrick (Eddie Munster), Kevin Eastman (co-creator of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles), and Walt’s personal hero, Gene Simmons of KISS.
This season’s sixteen episodes are loaded with exciting adventures and stories revisited as the guys reminisce during their hilarious podcast, which is seamlessly woven into each episode.
Here is how the artist describes the exhibit:
“Being a child of the 1980s, Saturday mornings were spent in front of the television with a bowl of cereal watching all of my favourite cartoons. What always struck me about those classic shows, such as Spider-man, Masters of the Universe, Scooby-Doo and the Superfriends were the beautifully hand-painted backgrounds. Sadly, that form of animation has faded away. Celscapes is a celebration of those classic painted backgrounds, depicting scenes from films, television and cartoons.”
The opening reception will take place from 7pm-10pm. Admission and drinks are free.
The CW has released a new poster for the series premiere of The Flash, hitting the airwaves on October 7, 2014 and it’s loaded with DC Comics Easter eggs. Check them out HERE.

Terry O’Quinn voices Professor Mystery, with Jane Kaczmarek and Rob Morrow as capsule inhabitants Denise and Bernie.
The Story of Frozen: Making a Disney Animated Classic is an all-new, original special in a first-of-its-kind collaboration with Lincoln Square Productions and Walt Disney Animation Studios. The special ventures behind-the-scenes for an exclusive look at the origins and evolution of the Academy Award- winning film Frozen, now the biggest animated feature of all time. A breathtaking and fantastic saga, the special tells the real story of making a modern movie based on a timeless tale that nearly overnight became a cultural touchstone for legions of fans.

Viewers will get a rare look inside Walt Disney Animation Studios and unprecedented access to the creative team that brought “Frozen” to life. Throughout the one-hour special, the audience will hear from “Frozen” stars Kristen Bell and Idina Menzel, the directors, songwriters, producer and artists and chief creative officer John Lasseter – the team who dreamed of making a cherished Hans Christian Andersen story into a big screen animated musical. Viewers will take a journey to the beautiful Norwegian villages and landscapes that inspired the look of Arendelle – the fictional kingdom – and see images and footage from the research trips to Norway, Quebec and points beyond that helped create the film’s unforgettable look and feel.
This special will also include some exciting announcements about the next chapter of Frozen and a never-before-seen preview of Frozen characters Anna, Elsa and Kristoff on an upcoming episode of ABC’s smash-hit “Once Upon a Time.”
The program will culminate in an exclusive sneak peek at the action-packed comedy-adventure Big Hero 6, currently in production at Walt Disney Animation Studios –under wraps until now – as the team prepares their next big-screen epic.
Dark Hall Mansion is thrilled and honored to reveal its latest officially licensed limited edition project and release: “The Twilight Zone.”
Dark Hall Mansion, under license by CBS Consumer Products, will release a 10-print “The Twilight Zone” series focused on key classic episodes of the legendary series that redefined television.
Dark Hall Mansion’s officially licensed 10-print limited edition subscription screenprint series goes on sale Tuesday, August 19th, and will feature 10 classic “The Twilight Zone” episodes rendered by leading contemporary artist, Tom Whalen. The 10-print “The Twilight Zone” editions will be offered as a subscription print series with an exclusive worldwide run of only 230 Standard edition subscriptions and 70 Variant edition subscriptions. Each of the 10 individual prints will focus on one classic “The Twilight Zone” episode, each rendered in artist Tom Whalen’s inimitable and dynamic style, each measuring 18″ x 24″ and each fully screen printed. Prints will include classic episodes like “Eye of the Beholder,” “Nightmare at 20,000 Feet,” “Living Doll,” and “Nick of Time,” plus surprises along the way.
The series will be fittingly lead off by an appropriately unsettling and slightly creepy “The Twilight Zone” episode that happens to be one of Tom’s personal favorites, “Eye of the Beholder.”
For worldwide fans of the “Twilight Zone,” this is a very limited release as only 230 Standard edition subscription allocations will be available-worldwide-with an even more limited allocation of just 70 Variant subscriptions available worldwide. The Standard edition subscription-which will include all 10 prints-will price at $450 and the Variant edition subscription-also including all 10 prints-and printed with striking metallic ink highlights underscoring the print series’ vintage TV aesthetic will price at $650. “The Twilight Zone” prints will be issued throughout 2014-15 per artist Tom Whalen’s scheduling, and know Tom’s very next “The Twilight Zone” print will feature a gentle little girl and her very unique and disturbing doll, “Talky Tina.”
Fans and collectors can also expect guest artist print reveals on additional classic “The Twilight Zone” episodes-outside of Tom Whalen’s subscription series releases-with each guest artist print being rendered in their respective artist’s own unique style and with each guest artist addressing “The Twilight Zone,” as either series, or, rendering a specific classic episode not already in Tom’s subscription series. The 10-print “The Twilight Zone” subscription series will come with notable perks too! The first of which is: An automatic lock/reserve option to purchase any “The Twilight Zone” print created by these guest artists! Standard edition subscription holders will be entitled to a reserve/lock corresponding to Standard edition guest artist prints, Variant subscription holders to a reserve/lock on Variant guest artist prints.
Laurent Durieux will be doing a guest artist appearance for one of his own personal favorite “Twilight Zone” episodes?! Subscriptions holders will have first reserve/lock rights on his piece, just as they will for all other guest artist appearance “The Twilight Zone” prints!
4 very lucky Standard subscription buyers + 4 very lucky Variant subscription buyers (randomly chosen) will open their subscription tubes to find they instead now own a rare Tom Whalen foil “The Twilight Zone” subscription edition!! Thus a collector who finds a foil “Eye of the Beholder” in his tube can also expect their entire 10-print run to also be on foil! Note: There will also be 4 foil Standard subscriptions available for purchase (#’s 1-#4 available) for $1250 for the entire 10-print Standard foil run, or $1250 for the entire 10-print Variant foil run (also #1-#4 available). There are ONLY 4 Standard edition foil subscriptions available for purchase and ONLY 4 Variant edition foil subscriptions available for purchase, again, since Standard foil subscriptions (#’s 5-8) and Variant foil subscriptions (also #’s 5-8) will already be randomly inserted in tubes as a surprise to those lucky subscription buyers.
All Standard and Variant subscription series buyers will be entitled to an automatic lock/reserve on the first DHM Seminal Film Series release of 2014, also by Tom Whalen, which will be for a 24″ x 36,” fully licensed, major SCI-FI Hollywood studio classic! Pricing on Tom’s very first DHM Seminal Film Series release ever will be $65 for the Standard edition and $100 for the Variant edition, plus shipping. So purchasing either a Standard or Variant “The Twilight Zone” subscription series will also assure its buyer a lock on Tom’s Seminal Film Series piece as well.
Dark Hall Mansion will be welcoming the “Poster Posse” artists to join DHM to participate in Dark Hall Mansion’s “The Twilight Zone” project as well! “Poster Posse’s” loose confederation of gifted artists originates from the quite excellent, Blurppy.com blog, and will be creating prints for one of our “The Twilight Zone” guest artist spots down the line. So know 10 different “Poster Posse” artists will each interpret the same very special, quite classic, “The Twilight Zone” episode. Their episode’s work will be formally licensed, printed, and sold by DHM in extremely limited runs as each of these 10 artists will do only 23 Standard editions + 7 Variant editions each, and together this entire select DHM “Poster Posse” edition for that one key “The Twilight Zone” episode-totaling a combined 230 Std + 70 Variants-will be randomly offered to subscription series owners first, just as with all guest artist releases.
All “The Twilight Zone” limited edition subscription series go on sale Tuesday, August 19th, 2014 on Dark Hall Mansion’s dedicated store page HERE at a random time between 9:30 AM PST and 12 PM PST.
