It’s Christmas In July When NOS4A2 Makes Comic-Con Debut

Christmas comes early this year as AMC’s new supernatural horror series makes its debut at Comic-Con with a panel on Saturday, July 20 from 5:30pm-6:30pm in Room 6A.

Stars Zachary Quinto and Ashleigh Cummings will appear on the panel, plus showrunner and executive producer Jami O’Brien, and author and executive producer Joe Hill. The panel will be moderated by Entertainment Weekly senior writer Clark Collis.

NOS4A2 introduces Vic McQueen (Cummings), a gifted young woman who discovers she has a supernatural ability to find lost things. This ability puts her on a collision course with the evil and immortal Charlie Manx (Quinto). Manx is a supernatural villain who feeds off the souls of children then deposits what remains of them into Christmasland – a twisted place of Manx’s imagination where every day is Christmas Day and unhappiness is against the law. Vic strives to defeat Manx and rescue his victims – without losing her mind or falling victim to him herself.

Based on Joe Hill’s 2013 best-selling novel of the same name, NOS4A2 stars Emmy-nominated actor and producer Zachary Quinto, Ashleigh Cummings, Ólafur Darri Ólafsson, Virginia Kull, Ebon Moss-Bachrach and Jahkara Smith.

Watch the latest episodes now. The Full Season 1 is available now for AMC Premiere subscribers on amc.com and the AMC App for mobile and devices

Comic-Con Reveals 2019 Souvenir Book Cover By Jim Lee

2019 marks Comic-Con’s monumental 50th event—known officially as Comic-Con 50—and what better way to celebrate than with an extra-special Souvenir Book cover by one of comics’ top artists?

Comic-Con is pleased to reveal this year’s cover, penciled by the great Jim Lee—with inks by Scott Williams and colors by Alex Sinclair—featuring 13 of comics most popular characters. Sure you’ve seen Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman together before, but have you seen them with Spider-Man, Captain Marvel, Black Panther, Hellboy, Spawn, Michonne from The Walking Dead, and all four Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles—Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello, and Michelangelo? It’s the team-up fans have been dreaming about!

It was DC Comics publisher and chief creative officer Jim Lee’s idea to feature all of these earth-shattering heroes bursting from the San Diego Convention Center lobby to save the world in a one-of-a-kind piece of art the likes of which has never been seen before.

Jim had this to say about working on this year’s cover: “The honor was mine getting to do this historic cover for the world’s preeminent pop culture event. What an amazing 50 years!”

“Comic Con was the start of it for me and from my very first Con back in 1987, it’s been a huge part of my life. I’ve watched it transform the business and usher in a world I don’t think any comic book reader back in 1987 would ever have imagined to come to be.

“Thank you, Scott and Alex—you two continue to elevate and enhance everything you guys touch and this cover is a testament to the teamwork that we have forged and the sheer talent you bring to every project.”

Comic-Con’s Souvenir Book is available free to all 2019 attendees (while supplies last). This 280-page, full-color, trade paperback book features a pictorial history of Comic-Con’s past five decades, featuring over 530 photos and artwork from the event’s past, along with special features, including an in-depth history of Comic-Con by Eisner Award-winning author Bill Schelly. The Souvenir Book is available onsite only at Comic-Con 2019, July 18–21 at the San Diego Convention Center.
