SPECIAL FILM SCREENINGS PRESENTED BY SHOUT! KIDS AT COMIC-CON
Slugterra: Return of the Elementals (Saturday, July 26 at 11:50 AM, Marriott Marina Ballroom D)
Shout! Factory, Screenvision and Nerd Corps Entertainment have teamed up to bring a new feature-length original movie Slugterra: Return of the Elementals to cinemas across the U.S. beginning August 2, 2014.  In Slugterra: Return of the Elementals, Junjie, a new member of the Shane Gang is a master of the mysterious slug slinging art of Slug Fu! But even with the power of five slingers, the Shane Gang are in over their heads as they attempt to protect the five legendary Elemental Slugs, ancient slugs of great power and the forebarers of all slugs in Slugterra. When an evil alliance starts hunting down the Elementals, Eli and his friends — old and new — take off in pursuit of the greatest threat their world has ever faced! (2014, Rated TV-Y7-FV)
THUNDER AND THE HOUSE OF MAGIC (Saturday, July 26 at 1:30 PM, Marriott Marina Ballroom D)
Directed by renowned 3D filmmakers Ben Stassen (Fly Me To The Moon, Sammy's Adventures: Escape From Paradise) and Jeremie Degruson (A Turtles Tale: Sammy’s Adventure), with original music by Ramin Djawadi (Pacific Rim, Game Of Thrones), THUNDER AND THE HOUSE OF MAGIC is a whimsical animated family adventure, bringing to life a unique story with a great sense of humor, positive values and universal appeal. Brimming with spectacular CG animation and endearing characters, this internationally acclaimed motion picture delivers a fun and highly entertaining movie experience for kids and the entire family.
THUNDER AND THE HOUSE OF MAGIC tells the story of Thunder, an abandoned young cat seeking shelter from a storm stumbles into a mysterious mansion owned by Lawrence, a retired magician. With all of Lawrence’s animal friends, including Jack the Rabbit and Maggie the Mouse, and a dazzling array of automatons and gizmos, you’d think this fantastically strange house wouldn’t have any vacancies. But as far as Lawrence is concerned, there’s always room for one more! Just as Thunder begins to feel at home, trouble strikes when Lawrence ends up in the hospital and the magician’s naughty nephew tries to trick him into selling the house. But Thunder and his newfound friends have a few tricks up their sleeves as they put aside their differences to defend their home with a delightfully spooky strategy.
(2013, Not Rated: For All Audiences)

DARK HORSE COMICS | SAN DIEGO COMIC-CON 2014 | BOOTH #2615
SIGNING SCHEDULE

All creators signing in our booth offer their autographs for FREE. FREE prints, comics, or posters are provided for most of our signings (while supplies last). You may purchase or bring items to be signed; however, we may restrict the type or number of items to be signed as necessary.
Some signings require a wristband for entry, as noted on the schedule. Drawings for wristbands for these events will begin at show opening the day before and day of each signing. Come to the Dark Horse booth early for the best chance to join these events.
Lines may also be closed for some signings due to crowding or time restrictions.
We have two signing stages: one featuring the art of Mike Mignola’s Hellboy; the other, the art of Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan’s The Strain. The location of each signing is indicated by the following abbreviations:

What Summer Shows Did TNT Renew?

THE LAST SHIP Renewed

If anyone out there is a big fan of The Last Ship, Major Crimes or Falling Skies, I have some great news for you, if you haven't already heard.  TNT renewed these hit summer series for more seasons of fun for the summer television viewer! Though for the Falling Skies fan, the next season will be its last.

Check out the press release below:

TNT has renewed three of its chart-topping summer hits:  The Last Ship, Major Crimes and Falling Skies. All three dramas rank among basic cable's Top 5 scripted series this summer with total viewers and adults 25-54. They have also helped TNT score a significant lead as basic cable's #1 network in primetime for the summer-to-date.

TNT has ordered 13 episodes of The Last Ship, an increase over its first-season order of 10 episodes.

The network is also ordering 15 episodes for season four of Major Crimes.

And Falling Skies will mark its fifth and final season with 10 episodes.

"TNT's refreshed and recharged drama brand is soaring this summer, and that is due in large part to these three enormously popular dramas," said Michael Wright, president, head of programming for TNT, TBS and Turner Classic Movies (TCM). "The Last Ship has become this summer's top drama among key adult demos with its epic scale and visceral storytelling. Major Crimes continues to be one of the most enduring and popular crime-drama franchises on television. And Falling Skies has begun an ambitious and thrilling story arc this summer as it sets the stage for next year's climactic final season."

The Last Ship is a blockbuster hit in its first season, not only among total viewers but also among key adult demos. The action-packed drama from executive producer Michael Bay has averaged more than 7.2 million viewers in Live + 7 delivery in its first season and currently ranks as basic cable's #1 scripted series this summer with adults 18-49 and adults 25-54. The show is also cable's #1 new series for the year-to-date among total viewers and adults 25-54.

Major Crimes is showing an uptick over last year, with 7 million viewers in Live + 7 delivery for its third season so far. It ranks second behind Rizzoli & Isles among the summer's top scripted series on basic cable. Major Crimes has also drawn key demo deliveries of  2.1 million adults 25-54 and 1.5 million adults 18-49.

Falling Skies has averaged more than 5.5 million viewers in Live + 7 delivery for its fourth season, including 2.5 million adults 25-54 and 2.1 million adults 18-49. It ranks behind The Last Ship and Rizzoli & Isles among basic cable's Top 3 scripted series this summer with adults 25-54.

TNT's summer success also includes Rizzoli & Isles, which ranks as basic cable's #1 scripted series this summer. The show has brought in a whopping 8.5 million viewers in Live + 7 delivery in its fifth season, a slight increase over its summer average last year, and ranks right behind The Last Ship as basic cable's #2 scripted series this summer with key demos. In addition, TNT's new crime-drama Murder in the First has averaged 5.0 million viewers in Live + 7 delivery for its first season, and Perception is averaging 4.6 million viewers in Live + 7 delivery for its third season.

TNT will continue to roll out summer dramas in August. The network will launch the highly buzzed-about drama Legends, starring Sean Bean, on Wednesday, Aug. 13, at 9 p.m. (ET/PT). It will be followed by Franklin & Bash, which is coming back for its fourth season. And on Aug. 18, Dallas will return to continue its third season.
