ABOUT OUR GUEST: TOM HUTCHISON

WHAT DO YOU DO? (Think Twitter Bio)

I am the founder, art director and publisher for Big Dog Ink and the writer/creator of Critter, Penny for Your Soul, Legend of Oz: The Wicked West, Kaiju Epic, Lights…Camera…Jungle! and Ursa Minor.

WHAT DO YOU GOT GOING ON THESE DAYS? (Shameless Plug Time)

Separating from Aspen Comics after three years, we are now returning to our roots and relaunching the BDI brand with Penny for Your Soul like we did 7 years ago. Our first two successful Kickstarters for Lights…Camera…Jungle! and Kaiju Epic! and the continued sales of our series back issues have shown us the world is still hungry for Big Dog Ink stories, and Penny for Your Soul is where we start our journey back. But we are also looking at some new projects beyond Penny, both as comics and as digital experiences using social media in new ways including something Im calling Shahrazad: Side Quests.

GOT A HOT TAKE? (Tell us the burning issues you’re dying to talk about)

Lets not get too negative lol I always have hot takes, but lets just say the retail side of things is a mess right now and totally over saturated with companies and product. It’s nearly impossible for all these books to find shelf space at the retail level, BDI was a Diamond Top 300 publisher multiple times in our first four years, but I think even we would be hard pressed to make that list again any time soon. So we are returning to focus directly on our customers and fans that have supported us and have waited so patiently for new product, and thats exactly what Kickstarter allows us to do.

Thursday (October 5, 2017)
Michael Rooker Spotlight: 2:30-3:30pm EST/7:30-8:30 BST (Main Stage 1-D)
Fresh from his turn as Mary Poppins/Yondu in Guardians of the Galaxy 2, as well as having spent a considerable time as the redneck you’d love to punch, Merle Dixon, on The Walking Dead, Rooker is bound to have amusing anecdotes a-plenty and a few juicy behind-the-scenes tidbits to share.
American Gods: 6-7pm EST/11pm-midnight BST (Main Stage 1-D)
There are already so many questions swirling after that American Gods season finale – and this panel will be the place where (hopefully) some of those questions get answered. Three of the cast, Ricky Whittle, Yetide Badaki, and Pablo Schrieber will be at the panel, as well as appearing across all four days of the convention.

Friday (October 6, 2017)
Pacific Rim Uprising: 12pm-1pm EST/5pm-6pm BST (The Theater at Madison Square Garden)
Immediately after Peter Capaldi’s panel comes the first marquee panel of NYCC 2017 from Madison Square Garden. It’s sure to be a wild ride as lots of the Pacific Rim sequel has been kept under-wraps until now. Expect a clip or two and John Boyega to also grace us with his presence. Are we ok to ask about Star Wars: The Last Jedi?

Saturday (October 7, 2017
Star Trek: Discovery: 3:45-4:45pm EST/8:45-9:45pm BST (The Theater at Madison Square Garden)
If an hour of laser-focused discussion and reveals surrounding Star Trek: Discovery sounds like your thing then Madison Square Garden is the place to be on the Saturday. Promising to be chock-full of appearances from cast, as well as executives behind the show, this is one panel not to be missed.

The Walking Dead: 7:45-8:45pm EST/12:45-1:45am BST (The Theater at Madison Square Garden)
The Walking Dead season 8 brings Rick and the gang on the cusp of all-out war with Negan and his set of Saviours. Here’s hoping Saturday evening’s panel will shed some light on what’s to come, and just what the deal is with Old Man Rick. The cast, including Andrew Lincoln, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, and Norman Reedus, and the brains (mmm, brains) behind the operation will converge to discuss all things Walking Dead for, probably, the event’s most interesting hour.

Sunday (October 10, 2017)
The X-Files: 1-2pm EST/6-7pm BST (Main Stage 1-D)
The truth is out there, and so is this panel discussing the upcoming second season of the X-Files revival. Mulder and Scully will both be there (let’s face it, Gillian Anderson is worth the price of admission alone) to discuss the exclusive first-look at the new ten-episode run premiering in January.

NEXT WEEK: It’s our New York ComicCon aftermath! What big time announcements, cosplay, sights and more made splashes at the ginormous ComicCon event? We give you first hand details

PLUS: The creator of Penny for Your Soul Tom Hutchinson gives us his take on his new Kickstarter, the state of the comic book industry and why I’m protesting my fantasy football defeat at his hands

On this week’s episode of Secrets of the Sire: Is the Power Rangers movie the next Batman V Superman? Has it jumped the shark already by going too dark? A great article on The Guardian poses that exact question:

“There is something quite off-kilter about the idea of a Power Rangers movie with a budget of $150m, and starring – for goodness sake – Hollywood big hitters such as Breaking Bad’s Bryan Cranston and Elizabeth Banks. This could never have happened before the current explosion of comic-book movies, and the debut teaser trailer for Dean Israelite’s 2017 movie leaves us wondering whether a big-budget take on the long-running TV show might be the worst idea since Josh Trank’s dark and brooding Fantastic Four last year.”
