We are VERY excited to announce that our favorite guest, ROBERT ENGLUND will be returning to MONSTER-MANIA, headlining not one but TWO of our shows! ROBERT will be attending both MONSTER-MANIA CON 40 the weekend of AUGUST 17-19th in CHERRY HILL, NJ and also MONSTER-MANIA CON 41 the weekend of SEPT 28-30th in HUNT VALLEY, MD!

ROBERT ENGLUND has long been a friend of our show, first appearing at MONSTER-MANIA CON 2, fourteen years ago. This year he’ll be appearing at both our New Jersey and Maryland shows to meet the fans in both of those areas.

ROBERT first donned the now famous sweater and glove for Wes Craven’s 1984 film A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET and took the horror world by storm. The original NOES franchise has now spanned 8 films, culminating in 2003’s long anticipated horror icon battle, FREDDY VS JASON.

In 1988 ROBERT once again played the role of FREDDY KREUGER as he hosted the television series FREDDY’S NIGHTMARES which ran for two seasons.

ROBERT has starred in a seemingly endless list of other projects including the lead role in the 1989 remake of the classic horror film THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA. More recently ROBERT has starred in such projects as WISHMASTER, V, THE MANGLER, URBAN LEGEND, STRANGELAND, 2001 MANIACS, HATCHET, FEAR CLINIC, BEHIND THE MASK: THE RISE OF LESLIE VERNON, MASTERS OF HORROR, NIGHT TERRORS, C.H.U.D. II, DEAD & BURIED and many, many, many more.

The Art of MARCH: A Civil Rights Masterpiece Exhibition

Press Release:

The Art of MARCH: A Civil Rights Masterpiece walks visitors through the story of Congressman John Lewis’s experience in the civil rights movement as depicted by the pen of MARCH trilogy illustrator Nate Powell. This landmark exhibition of Congressman Lewis’s celebrated graphic novel memoir, co-written with Andrew Aydin, takes visitors on a visceral tour of the movement, illuminating pivotal moments, people, and philosophies through the display of over 150 pieces of original art, interactive materials, and new exhibition essays by Jonathan W. Gray, Associate Professor of English at John Jay College of Criminal Justice and author of Civil Rights in the White Literary Imagination: Innocence by Association (The University Press of Mississippi. 2013). The exhibition gives a glimpse into how this graphic novel was created, with behind-the-scenes process art and artifacts from Powell’s illustration process. A portion of the exhibition also shows how Eisner Award–winning Powell evolved from an SVA student steeped in the punk zine culture into the illustrator of MARCH.

The Society of Illustrators will be organizing events open to the public in conjunction with the exhibition. An opening reception will take place on Thursday, March 1st, beginning at 6:30 PM. A schedule of lectures, panels, tours and workshops geared toward students, teachers, as well as the general public will be announced in the coming weeks.

Held on April 7 and 8th, the Fest will include speaking engagements, book signings, and parties. Further scheduling information for MoCCA Arts Festival will be available in future announcements.

The MARCH trilogy has been recognized for its groundbreaking storytelling with numerous accolades. MARCH: Book One became the first graphic novel to win a Robert F. Kennedy Book Award, MARCH: Book Two won the Eisner Award, MARCH: Book Three is the first graphic novel to receive a National Book Award, and the trilogy has spent a combined 99 weeks on the New York Times Bestseller List. MARCH is published by Top Shelf Productions, an imprint of IDW Publishing.

The Art of MARCH: A Civil Rights Masterpiece exhibition is co-curated by John Lind (Creative Director, Kitchen Sink Books, an imprint of Dark Horse Comics) and Charles Brownstein (Executive Director, Comic Book Legal Defense Fund).
