TR!CKSTER — Creator-owned gallery, retail and event space

TR!CKSTER is the brain-child of two Pixar artists, Scott Morse and Ted Mathot. It is a creator-owned event that will run during the week of Comic-Con (Tuesday through Sunday). It is a free venue, open to the public. They offer a retail space showcasing creator-owned work, a gallery and an event space. TR!CKSTER is being hosted by the San Diego Wine and Culinary Center at 200 Harbor Dr., Ste. 120 which is directly across the street from the San Diego Convention Center.

The Symposia are ticketed events and pricing will be offered per seat per symposia or and All-Access pass may be purchased. Tickets will be on sale on Wednesday, June 1st (seating is limited to 140). Topics will include Visual Storytelling in Comics and Film, The Art Workshop, Character Design and Development, Invisible Ink: The Understructure of Story, Building a Short Story: Crime and Terror, The Jump from Page to Screen, Dissecting Genre: Horror, and Building a Creator-Owned Creative Team. There are also free events daily. Coffee service will be from 9:30am to 12:00pm and a full-service cocktail bar from 12:00pm to 1:00am.

They will also offer a different, limited edition print by one of the TR!CKSTER artists, with purchase of The High Five — a top-shelf bourbon, whiskey, rum or tequila (TR!CKSTER glass included)! The High Five will be available from 8:00pm to 1:00am, or until supplies are exhausted. Animation, live-action short film screenings, workshops, gallery receptions, artist signings, drawing events, DJs and live music will be available.

The first exclusive TR!CKSTER item will be a limited edition hardcover 9″x12″ book by a LOT of today’s top creators. They will be available for $20 at the TR!CKSTER store. The book is strictly limited to 1000 copies. TR!CKSTER will definitely be a welcome addition to all of the off-site events during Comic-Con this year. It definitely sounds like a nice, relaxing place to mingle with artists and have a good time while learning at the same time! Who’s ready for Comic-Con now?

Conan The Barbarian in 3D and Comic-Con Contest

This version of Robert E. Howard’s Conan The Barbarian returns to the big screen this summer in a 3D action film, starring Games of Thrones‘ Jason Momoa as the legendary warrior.

Having thrived and evolved for eight consecutive decades in the public imagination- in prose and graphics, on the big screen and small, in games and properties of all kinds- Conan’s exploits in the Hyborian Age now come alive like never before in a colossal 3D action-adventure film.

A quest that begins as a personal vendetta for the fierce Cimmerian warrior soon turns into an epic battle against hulking rivals, horrific monsters, and impossible odds, as Conan realizes he is the only hope of saving the great nations of Hyboria from an encroaching reign of supernatural evil.

Conan the Barbarian stars Jason Momoa as Conan, Rose McGowan as Marique, Ron Perlman as Conan’s father, Corin, Rachel Nichols as Tamara, Stephen Lang as Khalar Zym,  Said Taghmaoui as Ela-Shan, Leo Howard, Steve O’Donnell, Raad Rawi, Nonso Anozie, Bob Sapp, and Milton Welsh. The movie is directed by Marcus Nispel.

Conan the Barbarian opens August 19.

“I live. I love. I slay…I am content.” – Conan The Barbarian

Warner Bros. is getting ready for Comic-Con 2011!

Warner Bros. is getting into the swing of  Comic-Con 2011. They are steadily updating their page and have released some cool info. As Tammy Golihew says that they are planning on having cast members from shows like The Big Bang Theory, The Vampire Diaries, Supernatural, Fringe, V, Chuck and Human Target. Well, I don’t think Human Target will be there as Fox canceled the show. I hope that they will still have some kind of Smallville panel but it’s probably unlikely. Other shows that were mentioned were Children’s Hospital, Young Justice, Looney Tunes, Scooby Doo and ThunderCats!

We also learn that Warner Bros. will have an Exclusive ThunderCats Shirt!

…and Special Editions of TV Guides featuring WB shows like last year!

Warner Bros. is excited to once again return to Comic-Con in San Diego this July.  We’ll have even more TV shows, new games, films and stars at The Con for the panels, signings and available for sampling.  We are working hard on the designs for the 2011 Comic-Con WB booth and we’ll be introducing a new ticketing system this year for the signings and panels.  Please check back here for developing news, new videos each week and more information about the schedule.  We look forward to seeing you in San Diego, or having you follow us here on the site as well as on Twitter at @thewbdotcom where we will have up to the minute information, photos and video.
