“For All Mankind” Season Four
Apple TV+ presents “For All Mankind’s” alternate new millennium
Screening of episode 401 + panel presentation
Thursday, October 12 at 4:45 p.m.
Room 409

Description: After three seasons of rewriting history from the 1950s to the 1990s, Apple TV+’s critically acclaimed, alternate reality series “For All Mankind” returns for the highly-anticipated fourth season at the beginning of the new millennium, 2003. Tackling the most modern decade to date, the early 2000s comes to life in season four in a familiar yet astronomically different way, as new and returning cast members navigate life on earth and in the cosmos in the new millennium.

Rocketing into the new millennium in the eight years since season three, Happy Valley has rapidly expanded its footprint on Mars by turning former foes into partners. Now 2003, the focus of the space program has turned to the capture and mining of extremely valuable, mineral-rich asteroids that could change the future of both Earth and Mars. But simmering tensions between the residents of the now-sprawling international base threaten to undo everything they are working towards.

The ensemble cast returning for season four includes Joel Kinnaman, Wrenn Schmidt, Krys Marshall, Edi Gathegi, Cynthy Wu and Coral Peña along with new series regulars Toby Kebbell, Tyner Rushing, Daniel Stern and Svetlana Efremova. “For All Mankind” is created by Emmy Award winner Moore, and Emmy nominees Nedivi and Wolpert. Nedivi and Wolpert serve as showrunners and executive produce alongside Moore and Maril Davis of Tall Ship Productions, as well as David Weddle, Bradley Thompson and Seth Edelstein. “For All Mankind” is produced by Sony Pictures Television.

The first three seasons of “For All Mankind” are now available to stream on Apple TV+. Season four of “For All Mankind” will premiere November 10.

“Monarch: Legacy of Monsters”
Apple TV+ presents “Monarch: Legacy of Monsters” based on Legendary’s Monsterverse

Screening of episode 101 + panel presentation
Friday, October 13 at 11:00 a.m.
Empire Stage

Description: Following the thunderous battle between Godzilla and the Titans that leveled San Francisco and the shocking revelation that monsters are real, “Monarch: Legacy of Monsters” tracks two siblings following in their father’s footsteps to uncover their family’s connection to the secretive organization known as Monarch. Clues lead them into the world of monsters and ultimately down the rabbit hole to Army officer Lee Shaw (played by Kurt Russell and Wyatt Russell), taking place in the 1950s and half a century later where Monarch is threatened by what Shaw knows. The dramatic saga – spanning three generations – reveals buried secrets and the ways that epic, earth-shattering events can reverberate through our lives.

“Monarch: Legacy of Monsters" is co-developed by Chris Black ("Severance," "Star Trek: Enterprise," "Outcast,") and Matt Fraction ("Hawkeye”). Matt Shakman (“Wandavision”) directs the first two episodes.

Hailing from Legendary Television, the series is executive produced by Black, Fraction and Shakman alongside Joby Harold (“Obi-Wan Kenobi,” “Transformers: Rise of the Beasts”) and Tory Tunnell (“Spinning Out,” “Underground”) from Safehouse Pictures, Matt Shakman ("Wandavision"), Andy Goddard ("Carnival Row, "Downton Abbey"), Brad Van Arragon ("Yellowjackets, "Carnival Row"), and Andrew Colville (“Severance,” “Star Trek: Discovery”). Hiro Matsuoka and Takemasa Arita executive produce on behalf of Toho Co., Ltd., the owner of the Godzilla character. Toho licensed the rights to Legendary for “Monarch: Legacy of Monsters” as a natural byproduct of their long-term relationship with the film franchise.

Legendary Entertainment’s Monsterverse is an epic entertainment universe of interconnected stories that bring together popular culture’s most titanic forces of nature. Witness humanity’s greatest battle for survival as we fight for our world in the face of a catastrophic new reality—the monsters of our myths and legends are real. Beginning in 2014 with Godzilla and continuing with 2017’s “Kong: Skull Island,” 2019’s “Godzilla: King of the Monsters” and 2021’s “Godzilla vs. Kong,” the Monsterverse has accumulated close to two billion dollars globally at the box office and is ever-expanding, with the highly anticipated sequel “Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire.”

Squanch Games is heading to New York Comic Con this October, bringing some much-needed culture to the city. They’re not just going to score free lanyards and meet the guy from that one TV show, either! The devs are hosting a panel all about High On Life’s big DLC, High On Knife, on October 12.

The panel, Behind the Knife: A Journey into High On Life with Squanch Games, will be in Room 405 on Thursday, October 12 from 6-7 p.m. ET. The team will be spilling their guts about the DLC, sharing behind-the-scenes stories from its development and how Knifey went from being a humble talking knife in High On Life to the star of the whole darn thing! Not enough for you? Did I mention that there’s going to be merch giveaways? No T-shirt cannons though. Did you know there’s a lethal range for T-shirt cannons? It’s true.

Panelists include Aimee Achilli (lead producer); Mike Fridley (notoriously tall Squanch studio director and CEO); Erich Meyer (chief design officer); Alec Robbins (narrative director); Mikey Spano (chief creative officer); and Andy Vatter (lead designer). We have a Very Cool host, but you’ll have to wait and see who it is.

But that’s not all! Squanch will be hosting a community meet-up right after the New York Comic Con panel ends that Thursday evening from 8:30-11 p.m. at Bourbon and Branch. Swing by and have a cocktail with the team, and check out (buy!) cool new High On Life merch! It’s going to be a super fun, super chill evening for cool people / fellow weirdos.

Z2, the multiple Eisner-winning and Ringo-winning independent publisher of graphic novels, is set to raise their fist in celebration of their music creators this October at New York Comic Con with plans to host multiple signings at their booth, debut new titles, and participate in panels.

Z2 Comics will invade New York Comic Con in October with an array of talent appearing in support of current and upcoming graphic novels. While days and times are yet to be finalized, among those confirmed include Halestorm, GWAR, Alan Robert of Life Of Agony and Dee Snider of the legendary Twisted Sister.​

The entire band of Halestorm, including Lzzy Hale, will appear at NYCC 2023 in support of their graphic novel entitled Hyde Manor released in late August 2023. Celebrating the 10th anniversary of the 2012 EP Hello, It’s Mz Hyde and its ensuing LP, The Strange Case Of…, the Hyde Manor graphic novel depicts the members of Halestorm encountering sinister doppelgangers of themselves. Within the decrepit halls of Hyde Manor, mirror reflections independently talk back and photographs transform to reveal sordid prophecies, leading the band to slowly succumb to madness while recording a new album. The tale creaks and twists with doom-filled revelations, perfectly tied to Halestorm’s scorching discography. Twins Brittany and Brianna Winner (the Twin Soul series), artist Sara Scalia, cover artist Alison Sampson, and colorist DJ Alonso weave a tale of the celebrated group as they seek refuge in the titular Hyde Manor—a sprawling gothic estate perched on the remote end of the Oregon Coast.

GWAR will also be attending NYCC to promote In the Duoverse Of Absurdity released earlier this year. The story follows the band into the multiverse where they encounter alternate versions of themselves from another dimension, forcing GWAR to defend their universe from the intruders. If unleashed upon the universe, these dark mirror incarnations would dominate and subjugate all of humanity to the will of The Master. In the Duoverse Of Absurdity is co-written by GWAR rhythm guitarist Michael Derks and singer Matt Maguire, with art by Andy MacDonald (2020 Machine Man) and Shane White (Negative Burn).

The legendary Twisted Sister frontman, Dee Snider will be on hand to support He's Not Gonna Take It set to be released in late November. This new graphic novel will follow the impact of Dee's battle for freedom of expression in the arts throughout his life. From a childhood where he was frequently silenced, through the early efforts to stifle his band’s music, to the open warfare of the PMRC hearings in Washington DC, and his current efforts on social media. He's Not Gonna Take It tells the story of why free speech is so important to this man who has fought for it…even when it endangered everything that was important to him.

Comic creator and bassist for the heavy metal band Life of Agony, Alan Robert will be signing copies of his just released Pantera: Vulgar Display of Power graphic novel exclusive cover at the Z2 booth. He’s created popular graphic novels such as Wire Hangers, Crawl to Me, and Killogy, as well as a horror-themed adult coloring book series called The Beauty of Horror.

Finally, on Sunday, over a dozen contributors of the 2023 Eisner-winning and 2023 Ringo-winning The Illustrated Al, will be in attendance at the Z2 booth signing the “Weird Al" Yankovic art book for fans for the first time ever. Guests include Billy Plympton, Steve Chanks, Ryan Dunlavey, Patrick McQuade, Sean Pryor, and project editor, Josh Bernstein.​

Storm King Comics Scares Up Two Unique Horror-Themed Panels at New York Comic-Con

he times we live in are terrifying enough, so creators of horror stories across different media have a challenge to out-scare the headlines. Storm King Comics founder and horror legend Sandy King Carpenter will lead a panel discussion about the topic as part of New York Comic-Con, the comics publisher announced today.

In addition, King Carpenter will hold a special hourlong exploration of the origins, impact and future of Storm King Comics as the publishing house celebrates its first 10 years, sharing insight into her work with longtime partner and iconic horror director John Carpenter.

On Thursday, Oct. 12, King Carpenter will host Creating Modern Horror: Scaring People in Scary Times (12:15 p.m., Room 406.1), joined by artist Cat Staggs and author Amanda Deibert, both of whom collaborated with King on Death Mask, the first graphic novel from Storm King’s “Dark & Twisted” imprint. They’ll also be joined by writers and creators Neo Edmund, Sara Richard, Sian Mandrake, Richard P. Clark and Sean Sobczak, all of whom have helped create terrifying tales for Storm King Comics.

“New York Comic-Con has always, first and foremost, been about comics, and comics have always been about thrilling readers—and, in our case, making it impossible for them to go to bed at night,” King Carpenter said. “So we’re incredibly excited to create this comics-focused panel that addresses the challenges and excitement of creating stories and captivating readers.”

On Friday, Oct. 13, King Carpenter will host a special panel for the 10th anniversary of the publishing house she leads: 10 Years of Chills, Thrills and Kills: Storm King Comics (12 p.m., Room 406.2). She’ll explore the simple mission of Storm King: to publish the best in horror from writers across film, television, comics and graphic novels. The hourlong panel will also showcase how Storm King has expanded into science fiction and children’s books, and bring exclusive news about the next 10 years, while joined by surprise guests in a panel that will be a highlight of the weekend for any lover of comics, horror and the macabre.

In addition to both panels, which are hosted by Storm King’s Wynter Mitchell, King Carpenter will appear at the Storm King Comics booth (#3461) six times throughout the weekend (please note that all times are subject to change; always check the official schedule):

· 2 p.m., joined by Cat Staggs, Amanda Deibert, Dennis Calero, Neo Edmund, Sara Richard, Sian Mandrake, Richard P. Clark, Janice Chiang and Sean Sobczak
· 5 p.m., joined by Neo Edmund, Richard P. Clark, Janice Chiang and Sean Sobczak

FRIDAY, Oct. 13
· 2:30 p.m., joined by Frank Tieri, Amanda Deibert, Neo Edmund, Dennis Calero, Richard P. Clark, Janice Chiang, Jack Mandrake and Sean Sobczak
· 5 p.m., joined by Neo Edmund, Richard P. Clark, Janice Chiang, Jack Mandrake and Sean Sobczak

· 1 p.m., joined by Cat Staggs, Amanda Deibert, Andrea Mutti, Neo Edmund, Richard P. Clark, Janice Chiang and Sean Sobczak
· 5 p.m., joined by Neo Edmund, Richard P. Clark, Janice Chiang and Sean Sobczak

SUNDAY, Oct. 15
· 11 a.m., joined by Cat Staggs, Amanda Deibert, Neo Edmund, Richard P. Clark, Janice Chiang and Sean Sobcak

In addition to the Storm King Comics panels, New York Comic-Con fans will want to make note that Suburban Screamsmakes its premiere on Peacock while NYCC is underway. Both John Carpenter and Sandy King Carpenter are among executive producers of the series from Storm King Productions and DIGA Studios. John Carpenter has returned to the director’s chair for the first time in more than a decade to direct an episode of the series, which combines real-life horror with cinematic vision to ensure that viewers will never look at their neighbors the same way twice.

RSVLTS Official NYC Meet-Up Details: Everything You Need To Know + Exclusive Reveal!​

Mike Shriner | 09.28.23
We teased an official meet-up in our blog RSVLTS New York Comic-Con 2023: Everything You Need To Know!, so just like DJ Hanzel always says, we must go one deeper to provide additional details about our RSVLTS bash on the evening of Saturday, October 14th during New York Comic-Con.
This is a two-part event, so please, PLEASE READ so no one misses any critical info, because it’s uber exciting stuff. Here’s everything you need to know, including a first look at the exclusive official meet-up KUNUFLEX™ for Mosh event attendees.

Official Pre-Party Meet-Up

To celebrate our pals at Mosh Eisley, the galactic-themed, lightsaber-laden pop punk emo night taking over Manhattan on New York Comic-Con weekend, the RSVLTS crew is throwing an epic official pre-party meet-up for RSVLTS family, friends, the Mosh Eisley crew, and RSVLTS Insiders from 8pm-10pm ET at a venue a block from the Gramercy Theater.
We locked down The Globe for the party which is a legendary NYC haunt, especially if you’re a fan of the Premier League futbol or any soccer in general.
The entire RSVLTS crew will be there and we're guessing* Steve will be several beers deep handing out beverages and light snacks to everyone within sight throughout the event (*factual).

This official pre-party is free to attend (Mosh Eisley ticket NOT required), however you must RSVP (we just opened 50 more spots) so we can keep track.
A pre-party wristband will be provided upon arrival, which you'll need for the reminder of the evening, especially at Mosh Eisley (read more below).
Again, Mosh Eisley tickets are NOT required to attend the pre-Mosh meet-up, so even if you don't have Mosh tickets, we still encourage all to come hang out with us before the event!

This goes without saying, but anyone who attended Mosh Eisley at San Diego Comic Con would agree that it was the best event of the entire Con. Just watch the recap video below:
Because of this success, our buddy Nick and the entire Mosh/Thank The Maker squadron are coming to New York to throw their massive, intergalactic pop-punk-lightsaber dance party, and the full RSVLTS crew will be there once again.
We would love to see everyone there...ANNNNNND, RSVLTS is doing something extra special at the event! We created a limited-edition official meet-up shirt for the event. The design is inspired by our RSVLTS Outpost booth at New York City Comic-Con.
(Pictured Below: The RSVLTS Outpost booth at NYCC and the exclusive KUNUFLEX shirt available only at Mosh Eisley.)

Season one of “Shining Vale” introduced Pat and Terry Phelps, a dysfunctional family that tried to run from their problems by moving their kids into a Victorian mansion in small-town Connecticut. The only problem? It may be haunted. Once settled in, Pat encountered Rosemary, a demon who possessed her body and turned her life upside down. When the family steps in to “save” Pat, they commit her to a psychiatric hospital where she sees an old photo of a nurse who looks just like her demon Rosemary.

Season two kicks off four months later, when Pat’s insurance runs out and she is released from the psychiatric hospital early. Pat returns home, determined to pick up the pieces of her broken family, but she quickly finds out her children don’t need her, Terry doesn’t remember her and to make matters worse, Pat’s new neighbor Ruth looks exactly like Rosemary. Meanwhile, the house starts to reveal the shocking secrets of its dark past. Every mother feels like they live in an insane asylum, but Pat may be right!
