Anomaly Extra: News from NYCC
Hi, I’m Sue. I attended 3 conventions in 2 months, and I am a tired Anomaly. This extra special Anomaly episode is full of news out of New York Comic Con. From television, to documentaries, to short films, to graphic novels, to video games – there’s a little bit of everything.
As I say in the episode introduction, this is by no means comprehensive coverage. With just Anne and myself convering con, there was certainly no way that we could make it to everything, so there was plenty of stuff we did not get to. Instead, you’re stuck with report from the things that we found most interesting. We’re really excited about the news in this episode, and hope that you will be, as well.
There’s is a lot of information in this release, so here’s a bit of a guide to help you out:
01:15 - Prophets of Science Fiction
A new series on the Science Channel, premiering November 9, from Executive Producer Ridley Scott.
06:30 - Trek Nation
A two-hour documentary by Rod Roddenberry, Gene’s son, scheduled to air on November 30.

This post-panel interview was a wonderful treat for me, and has some added information about the Tale of Sand graphic novel. There are also some mentions of Henson exhibits: Jim Henson’s Fantastic World at the Museum of the Moving Image in Queens, NY and the Center for Puppetry Arts in Atlanta, GA. The Center’s Jim Henson Wing is currently scheduled to open in 2014. Also, for information on other Henson Exhibitions (and projects, for that matter), there’s the Jim Henson Legacy.
