Dark Horse has announced its panel and signings schedule for San Diego Comic-Con 2017 and it’s very impressive.
Four stars of Dark Matter – the TV space opera based on the Dark Horse graphic novel – will be signing on Days 1 and 3; Fan favorite (and fangirl) Felicia Day will be signing on Day 1; and creators from Hellboy/B.P.R.D., Harrow County, Elfquest and more will keep autograph hounds busy all weekend.
Panels include feature creators from Venture Brothers. Go Team Venture, an introduction to the company’s new Berger Books imprint with Karen Berger, and more.
San Diego Comic-Con 2017 takes place at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego, California, during the weekend of July 19 – July 23.
The second season finale of Dark Matter (Syfy, Fridays, 10/9C) – But First, We Save the Galaxy – brings the crew of the Raza to Eos-7 to try to prevent a war between the corporations. It’s the first Council of Corporations face-to-face meeting in over a decade (these people really don’t trust each other…).
What began as a series about mind-wiped six strangers on a spaceship has evolved into one where they’ve learned who they were and chosen not to be those people anymore. That decision put them in the surprising position of becoming something of an unheralded group of interstellar Robin Hoods – while leaving them among the most wanted (former) criminals in the galaxy.
Syfy has announced third season renewals for its Friday night space operas, Killjoys and Dark Matter ahead of their second season finales.
Killjoys wraps up its second season tomorrow, Friday, September 2nd (9/8C), while Dark Matter will run back-to-back episodes on Friday, September 9th (10/9C) before concluding its second season run on Friday, September 16th (10/9C).
Series descriptions and social media info follow the break.
Dark Matter’s first season cliffhanger left us hanging with the crew of the Raza being carted off by Galactic Authority as a result of being betrayed by Six.
The season two premiere (Welcome to Your New Home (this season the eps have titles!) begins with Two, Three and Four going through contamination as they enter a high security prison on an airless moon. Things can only get better from there, right?
Anthony Lemke – Dark Matter’s charismatic jerk, Three – has been named an Official Ambassador for Handicap International Canada.
HI is an international organization that works with ‘ersons with disabilities and other vulnerable groups in situations of poverty, exclusion, conflict and disaster.’
Lemke will help to raise Canadians’ aware of HI activities around the world – visiting areas devastated by use of explosive weapons and lobbying for the reduction of impact of armed conflict on innocent civilians.
Syfy has ordered 13-epiosde second seasons for both of its Friday night space operas – Dark Matter (above) and Killjoys.
Dark Matter – which revolves around a crew of a mercenary ship who have had their identities wiped – comes from Stargate veterans John Mallozzi and Paul Mullie.
Kiljoys – following a trio of Reclamation Agents (bounty hunters) in a planetary system of terraformed moons – was created by Michelle Lovretta, who also created Lost Girl.
Both shows ended with rather mindboggling cliffhangers so it will come as a relief to many that they were renewed so quickly. The second seasons of both shows will air in 2016. For more, follow the jump.
Dark Matter (Syfy, Friday, 9/8C) reaches the end of its first season with back-to-back episodes that are so different that their only connection is that are happening to the amnesiac mercenary crew of the spaceship the Rasa.
Episode Twelve finds the crew and, especially, Two learning out where she came from; Episode Thirteen is, of all things, a bottle show – no guest stars and set entirely on the show’s standing Rasa sets. Both are gripping and relentlessly enthralling.
Dark Matter (Syfy, 10/9C) started off with a space vessel with a crew of six who couldn’t remember who they were. Before the premiere had ended, they’d learned that they were – with one notable exception – wanted mercenaries with extremely bad records.
Since then, the series has been about them learning who they are now – and that’s not necessarily the same as who they were before someone hacked their stasis pods to wipe their memories. Now, in the season’s antepenultimate episode, we learn that there may be a great deal more to learn about them – as the Rasa has been taken over by mercenaries who look to double their take by collecting the bounties on them. Oh, and Two has been spaced.
Syfy’s Dark Matter – from John Mallozzi and Paul Mullie (various Stargate titles) – will guest star Ruby Rose, who was featured in the latest season of Orange is the New Black, on its July 24th episode.
Rose will play Wendy, an entertainment android who may be more than she seems. Follow the jump for more.
