Clermont Comic Con announces ANT Creator for November Show!

 Mario Gully, Creator of ANT announced for Clermont Comic Con

Mario Gully – Also known professionally as O.M.G. – is an American comic book artist, who created the comic book series Ant. Ant was first picked up by Arcana Studios and later moved to Image Comics where it would deal with more adult themes, leading to an incident where Gully had to issue an apology for a partial nude scene. The comic book would move again to Big City Comics where three further issues were published. Mario Gully later moved from the Independent pool of comics to go on and draw for Marvel Comics. Collaboration with several artists, including Matt Nixon, J.Scott Campbell, Joe Benitez, Roy Thomas, and Thomas Riviere, Mario Gully worked as an illustrator. He also has drawn Marvel Illustrated: Treasure Island adapted by legendary writer Roy Thomas with whom he would also work on the adaptation of Kidnapped, Marvel Adventures Hulk, and Exiles.

Monster Mania Con celebrates the 40th Anniversary of Halloween

Join us at MONSTER-MANIA CON 40 as we continue to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of John Carpenter’s HALLOWEEN!

We are VERY happy to announce that NICK CASTLE will be returning to CHERRY HILL, NJ for MONSTER-MANIA CON 40 which will be held the weekend of AUGUST 17-19th!

HALLOWEEN fans know that NICK essentially defined the role of MICHAEL MYERS in John Carpenter’s original 1978 horror classic. Many have tried to imitate the mannerisms of THE SHAPE as portrayed by NICK in the film. Now, 40 years after the original film NICK will reprise the role in the new HALLOWEEN 2018 film which will be released in October of this year.

After the release of HALLOWEEN NICK moved behind the camera, taking on the role of director. NICK directed over 13 different projects including films such as 1984’s THE LAST STARFIGHTER, 1986’s THE BOY WHO COULD FLY, 1993’s DENNIS THE MENACE and the 1995 comedy MAJOR PAYNE. NICK also co-wrote ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK with John Carpenter.

Please join us in welcoming NICK CASTLE back to MONSTER-MANIA CON 40 in Cherry Hill, NJ!

Be the 1st to Play Aftercharge at PAX East 2018

Press Release:

Chainsawesome Games, the Quebec-City indie studio behind fan-favorite Knight Squad and second place winner of the 2018 Ubisoft Indie Challenge, today announced that its new 3v3 asymmetrical competitive shooter-brawler Aftercharge will release on the best-selling Nintendo Switch™ home and portable console! Chainsawesome today also announces support for three-way online cross-platform play between Nintendo Switch and previously announced Windows PC and Xbox One Aftercharge versions. Prepare for high-voltage cat-and-mouse action as teams of invisible robots battle against invincible security guards when Aftercharge ships later this summer!

“Having Aftercharge support cross-play with the three platforms at launch has always been super important for us, so we can’t wait to see the three gaming worlds collide this summer,” said Laurent Mercure, Communications Officer at Chainsawesome Games. “Aftercharge on the Switch not only makes the game playable on-the-go, but also opens the door to building a more unified gaming community without platform-based borders. And for those gamers who want to get an early look at the game, we’ll be showcasing a playable PC build at PAX East 2018, as well as holding a special Alpha playtest in April. So, stay tuned for more details!”

In Aftercharge, six glowing structures called extractors are at the center of each match and serve as the objective for both teams — the attacking Workonics droids and the defending Enforcers guards. Choose from a total of eight unique characters, each with their own attacks, defensive abilities and weapons for a variety of tactical options. Although the objective of the game is simple, Aftercharge’s team-based gameplay relies heavily on strategy and stealth, where every player is vital to obtaining victory!

Aftercharge Key Features:
  • Unique Blend of Fresh Mechanics: An invisible team fighting an invincible team, reviving allies instantly with no limit and zero cooldown on abilities are only a few mechanics that make Aftercharge a shooter you’ve never played before.
  • Bite-Size Competitive Matches: The teams are small, the maps are small, the rounds are short, the action is always within sight and it never stops.
  • Asymmetrical Characters: Choose from a different character pool on each side with widely different abilities and roles to vary your team’s strategy.
  • Online Multiplayer and Matchmaking: Team up with players anywhere around the world and face-off against opponents of similar skill level thanks to Windows PC, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch cross-platform play.

Aftercharge is set on the distant planet of Dusk 11, exploited by the titular corporation for the energy at its core. Designed originally to avoid industrial espionage, the company’s workonics worker robots are defecting due to the planet’s now unstable energy, which has put the company’s extractors (and all life on the planet) at risk. The Workonics set out to destroy the extractors and must face off against human Enforcers guards who are invulnerable to robot attacks. Luckily for them, the Workonics have invisibility on their side.

Chainsawesome Games will showcase and make playable a brand new map and two new classes for Aftercharge at PAX East in Boston, Massachusetts at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center (BCEC) from April 5 – April 8, 2018. Attendees can take part in intense Aftercharge tournaments at Booth #15104.
