Miss WonderCon? No worries! Here’s our comic imprint’s WonderCon panel wrap up! At their first ever WonderCon panel, American Gothic Press was excited to take the stage and talk about the monumental first year they’ve had with their titles GUNSUITS, BROKEN MOON, PROJECT NEMESIS, MONSTER WORLD, and the more recent success in IRWIN ALLEN’S LOST IN SPACE: THE LOST ADVENTURES.
The discussion then focused on the upcoming action title KILLBOX, with writer Tom Riordan and artist Nathan Gooden on hand to talk about the process and the decision to keep the comic in black and white. They then revealed the cover of the upcoming third issue (see below). The comic drops April 27, 2016.
After KILLBOX, the conversation switched to LOST IN SPACE, with discussion of both the current story arc “The Curious Galactics” and the upcoming “Malice in Wonderland” (LOST IN SPACE #4-6). They then announced that colorist and cover artist Patrick McEvoy will be taking over art duties for the second arc.
The discussion then focused on the upcoming TALES FROM THE ACKERMANSION Kickstarter launching in May. To celebrate Forrest J Ackerman’s 100th birthday later this year, Famous Monsters of Filmland is putting together a graphic anthology to honor our founder. The list of contributors so far includes Kirk Hammett, Ray Fawkes, John 5, Richard Christian Matheson, Dan DiDio, Matt Frank, Christian DiBari, Charlie Benante, Juan Ferreyra, Darick Robertson, Bob Eggleton, Ben Meares, David Weiner, Holly Interlandi, Joe Moe, Adam Egypt Mortimer, Travis Williams, Trevor Goring, Buzz Dixon, Mark L. Miller, Jim Terry, Jonathan La Mantia, and Patrick McEvoy.
Looking towards the future, the cover for ISLAND 731 by Jeremy Robinson and Kane Gilmour was then debuted, illustrated by Jeff Zornow. The first issue solicits in May 2016.
GUNSUITS will return later this year with GUNSUITS: ALIX, a one-shot with Philip Kim, Holly Interlandi, and Dennis Calero as the creative team.
Finally, they announced that BROKEN MOON will also be returning, with Nat Jones returning on art duties. The cover was shown, featuring a sinister looking Gill-Creature.
