Join us in a panel hosted by Brett Breeding, Jon Bogdanove, Mike Carlin, and Karl Kesel, discussing the success of the famous Comic Book series: The Death Of Superman, the 1992 comic book storyline that occurred in the DC Comic’s Superman titles. In this story Superman engages an immensely powerful and seemingly unstoppable creature known as Doomsday, at the fights conclusion both combatants apparently die. And if there’s one thing that we learned from the series, it’s that Superman will always be there to fight him, even if it costs him his life.
That Panel shall be followed by a panel hosted by Jean Maccurdy, Eric Radomski, and Alan Burnett Discussing Batman the animated series. Batman the animated series was developed by Bruce Timm and Eric Radomski and was produced by Warner Bros. Animation airing from 1992-1995. The series was praised for its thematic complexity, darker tones, artistic quality, film noir aesthetics, and the modernization of the titles crime fighting origins. IGN listed this series as the best adaptation of batman outside of comics. It was only second best to The Simpsons, and it won four Emmy awards, including Outstanding Animated Program.

Late Night Zombie Movie
Time: Friday, Aug 25 | 10pm – 5pm
Location: Renaissance Hotel
Join us in this animated action, Zombie on the tracks thriller. Director Yeon Sang-ho returns with his second feature of the year Seoul Station. Strictly speaking, however, it’s less a follow-up and more a prologue-prequel to his earlier release Train to Busan. Seoul Station charts the spread of an undead outbreak at the titular railway terminus where one can catch, well, a train to Busan. Seoul Station, however, is an entirely different creature from its bombastic predecessor. Set at the outset of the epidemic that prompted so much chomping of flesh further down the line, it follows the attempts of Hye-sun to reunite with her callow boyfriend Ki-woong, before either of them get bitten. A full-on lockdown imposed by the callous Seoul authorities, seemingly unable or unwilling to distinguish between man or monster, complicates matters. Where Busan was a brash and frequently deafening spectacle, this is notably more downbeat, cast in a muted, perma-grey hue and focusing on those desolate souls trapped in life’s margins. All the while still reaching an agreeably nasty conclusion.
