Talented voice actors bring The Intergalactic Nemesis to life.

From audio, to comic book, and now live on center stage, comes a full-fledged sci-fi adventure worthy of any nerd’s attention. The Intergalactic Nemesis tells the tale of sludge monsters sent from planet Zygon, set destroy planet Earth and all who inhabit it.

Never fear! What would any noteworthy comic be without a squad of super heroes? The three heroes, comprised of an award winning reporter, her research assistant, and a mysterious librarian, are willing to go to the ends of the Earth (and beyond!) to defeat the monsters.

Talented voice actors bring The Intergalactic Nemesis to life.

With elements similar to Orson Welles’ sci-fi drama, combined with classic comic-book style, this live-action event will leave audiences itching to go on intergalactic adventure for themselves.

So how exactly does a live graphic novel presentation work? Contrary to film, this live event features talented voice actors who reenact the novel panel by panel. The panels are projected above while a pianist performs the score, guaranteed to provide an engaging experience to audiences like never before.

The Intergalactic Nemesis will be live at the Dallas City Performance Hall May 12-14.

Let’s get nerdy this weekend at the North Texas Comic Book Show

ntcbs

Come visit the North Texas Comic Book Shows and meet new friends, like Captain America, Daniel Calhoun!

New year, new chances to let your nerd out; and there’s no place better to do that than this weekend at the North Texas Comic Book Show.

The North Texas Comic Book Show will run Jan 30-31 at the Doubletree Hotel Dallas Market Center, 2015 Market Center Blvd, Dallas, TX and is $10 to get it (kids 11 and under are free).

NTCBS has a cosplay contest that’s different than the norm. Instead of the standard contest where contestants model their costumes, NTCBS judges the contestants based on their ability to perform a skit as the character they are dressed as. After attending the last show, I can testify that this is so much fun to watch. These talented cosplayers really put a lot of thought and heart into their acts, it’s definitely a must see!

In addition to cosplay guests attending, there will be some legendary comic book artists as guests of the show. Amazing Spider-Man & Dr. Strange artist Randy Emberlin, and James O’Barr, creator of 12472265_623645841109179_5702962452941214434_nThe Crow, are a couple of the artists who will have tables at the show. Not to mention a very special four-legged hero – Tugg the Bull Terrier, will be in attendance both days providing many smiles.

As a large advocate for shows “by the fans and for the fans” I appreciate all NTCBS does to make this show truly one that fans will appreciate from beginning to end. I love toy and comic book hunting, and I’ve found some real treasures at this show. There are so many different local vendors and comic book artists; it really isn’t hard to find something really unique.

This show is a great size and allows a relaxing atmosphere while also having enough going on to keep attendees entertained. The local nerd community is so encouraging and supportive; it really is such a great time getting to spend the weekend with fellow nerds.
