As promised, this February 14 isn’t just Valentine’s Day but for fans interested in hitting up Mark Millar and company’s Kapow! Comic Con this April, today serves as the confirmation of the show’s long-brewing media programming…or at least some of it.
Show partner IGN UK had the official word on the TV programming for Kapow! today with a slate of serial filmed talent showing up to promote shows well known in the UK and the U.S. For the former, representatives will be on hand from British shows “Skins,” “Being Human,” “Misfits” and “Merlin” while Hollywood studios will be sending talent from “Dexter,” “True Blood” and comics adaptation “The Walking Dead.” The site noted that reps from the shows will include “celeb guests and behind-the-scenes types” though no more specifics were available. More announcements on the movie side of programming may be coming in the days ahead as well.
“We want this to be a real event,” Millar told CBR in December. “I do it for the Millarworld books and I want to do the same here, teasing it all out slowly and driving people into a frenzy. Sure, we could tell you what Movie X is now, but I like the idea of people speculating even at the convention and nobody knowing until the lights go down and everyone has a big smile on their face.”
