The Tampa Bay Comic Con presented by MOR will be returning to the Tampa Convention Center on August 1-3, 2014, taking over the venue in its entirety. Already they’ve signed several stars from film and television, including Evan Peters of “X-Men: Days of Future Past”, Chloe Bennet of “Agents of the S.H.I.E.L.D,” Brighton Sharbino of “The Walking Dead,” and more! Tampa Bay Comic Con features a large exhibit hall, eclectic programming and numerous professionals from the world of publishing (writers) and illustration, along with a selection of celebrity guests from the most popular TV shows and movies.

“We’re gearing up for what we expect are going to be fun promotions leading up to TBCC”, said MOR President & General Manager Ken Lucas. “We’re also thrilled to hear the news about their acquisition of Richard Madden for the event.”

Tickets for Tampa Bay Comic Con 2014 are available at www.tampabaycomiccon.com. Look for MOR to launch its first Tampa Bay Comic Con “Watch and Win” sweepstakes sometime in early June, when someone’s going to get a shot at “V.I.P.” treatment. MOR-TV can be seen over the air on MOR-TV at 32.1, and on cable on Bright House 12/HD 1012, Verizon-Fios 12/HD 512 and Comcast 12/HD 437.

FL – The Empty Man Signing http://www.conventionscene.com/2014/05/29/fl-empty-man-signing/ http://www.conventionscene.com/2014/05/29/fl-empty-man-signing/#comments Thu, 29 May 2014 14:22:11 +0000 http://www.conventionscene.com/?p=58368 vdrArtist Vanesa Del Rey appears at Tate’s Comics on Saturday, June 14, 2014 from 2pm-4pm to celebrate the release of Boom Studio’s new mini-series “The Empty Man” with an in-store signing!

WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT: Cullen Bunn (THE SIXTH GUN, VENOM) and Vanesa R. Del Rey (HIT) are two of the most exciting talents in the industry, and perfectly in sync on this haunting new crime procedural.

WHAT IT’S ABOUT: It’s been one year since the first reported case of the Empty Man disease, and no drug has been able to slow its progress. The cause is unknown, and the symptoms include fits of rage, hideous hallucinations, suicidal dementia, followed by death, or a near lifeless, “empty” state of catatonia. As murder cults rise nationwide, the FBI and CDC enter a joint investigation of the Empty Man, hoping to piece together clues to stop the cult and uncover a cure.”
