Tarantino Headlines Dynamite’s 10th Anniversary Panel

Dynamite Entertainment has announced that pioneering filmmaker Quentin Tarantino and award-winning writer Matt Wagner will be joining the Dynamite 10th Anniversary Panel at San Diego Comic-Con 2014.  The two master storytellers will discuss bringing two Western icons together in Django / Zorro, the official comic book sequel to the blockbuster film Django Unchained, slated for release in November 2014 from Dynamite Entertainment and DC Entertainment.

On stage, Tarantino and Wagner will join Reginald Hudlin, the co-editor of the Django / Zorro crossover and a producer of the Django Unchained film; Nick Barrucci, CEO and Publisher of Dynamite Entertainment; and Joseph Rybandt, the Senior Editor of Dynamite.

The Dynamite 10th Anniversary Panel will take place on Sunday, July 27th, from 2:15pm to 3:15pm, in Room 6BCF.  The panel will be moderated by Alan Kistler, and is open admission to all ticketed convention attendees.

Dynamite Entertainment released a joint announcement with Zorro Production, Inc. and DC Entertainment on June 18th, announcing the Django / Zorro comic book series scheduled for release later this year.  Tarantino (perhaps best known for his films Pulp Fiction and Kill Bill) and Wagner (of the acclaimed Grendel and Zorro comic books) share plot duties on the new series, with Wagner providing final dialogue and Esteve Polls (The Lone Ranger) illustrating the work.
