On the trailer release dates and length:
Attendees of the Peter Panzerfaust panel (at 3:15 pm in room W470b) will be the exclusive audience of a three-minute teaser for the upcoming animated comic, which is great considering a motion comic lasts between 10 to 20 minutes.
An official trailer for the motion comic will be released on May 14, 2013, while the Peter Panzerfaust motion comic itself will be released the following day, on May 15, 2013.
Be sure to mark your calendars!
On the C2E2 panel:
Writer Kurtis wiebe told us exclusively that he believes the panel will be filmed and hopefully will be posted later, for the enjoyment of fans who could not go to Chicago.
Panel attendees will get the chance to win signed Peter Panzerfaust cover print (cf pictures of the voice talents holding cover prints).
While the C2E2 panel will feature Peter Panzerfaust writer Kurtis Wiebe, artist Tyler Jenkins and motion comic & TV series Executive Producer Jeff Krelitz, I would not be surprised if Ron Perlman himself made an unexpected appearance...but shh, we don't want to spoil the surprise.
On the recording session for the Peter Panzerfaust motion comic:
Kurtis Wiebe chatted with Pop Culture Hound about getting started in his writing career and what's coming up; while he was not directly involved in the recording, he gave a few informations.
The voice artists recorded their section separately from everybody else (which allows a better control of the editing but actors sometimes prefer to be able to interact with each other while recording the audio part).
The motion comic took the actual comic, so that anybody who has read the book are going to know the story; a few minors changes have been done to make it more adaptable to the animated media.
Wiebe would love to have any of the talented people that did the voices for the motion comic reprising their role in the (still in developpement) live action serie.
Hopefully, Jeff Krelitz will be able to answer more specific questions during the panel.
Panel attendees will also be the first to get a look at Kurtis J. Wiebe's new series Rat Queens, illustrated by Roc Upchurch; Rat Queens which is describe by Wiebe as being "Tank Girl meets Bridesmaids by way of a Lord of the Rings fantasy world on crack” chronicles the antics of four partying monster-hunter women who seek revenge.
Comic book artist Tyler Jenkins will be at C2E2 this coming weekend doing sketches...C2E2 attendees can visit Kurtis and Tyler at table I7.
Jenkins wil be offering bust sketches on the sketch covers (similar to the example posted above) for $75 (raw) or $125 (SS) at the C2E2 show (this includes the cost of the book,and Kurtis' signature, too)! Additional character is $75. There will be a maximum of 100 sketches available at the show (40 on Friday, 40 on Saturday, and 20 on Sunday). The sketch cover will also be available double-signed (not sketched) for $20 (or $30 for SS).
I hope you enjoyed reading these tidbits of information (and looking at the photos) and be sure to check the site often for the latest news on the panel, the Peter Panzerfaust trailer and hopefully a few surprises.
