AMC’s “Comic Book Men” Invade Baltimore Comic-Con to Tape an Episode of Their Series and Launch Their Comic Book, Cryptozoic Man
AMC‘s Comic Book Men will be filming an episode for the upcoming third season of the series, which premieres Sunday, October 13 at midnight ET/PT, at the Baltimore Comic-Con, where the cast will launch their first collaborative comic book Cryptozoic Man and sign Con-exclusive copies for fans. Cast members Walt Flanagan, Bryan Johnson, Michael Zapcic, and Ming Chen will be at Booth #2414 for the filming and signing throughout the day, and the legendary Executive Producer Kevin Smith will even stop by to help celebrate the launch.
Cryptozoic Man follows Alan Ostman, a middle-aged husband/father, who sees his life quickly unravel when his daughter goes missing on a camping trip in the Pacific Northwest…Bigfoot country. After Gray aliens abduct him from a roadside bar, he learns that the fate of the world is dependent on trapping the world’s most legendary cryptids…not to mention defeating a psychopath in a pig-shaped leather bondage mask. Alan knows he has his work cut out for him.
AMC’s Comic Book Men, a half-hour unscripted series, captures the world of comic book store, Jay and Silent Bob’s Secret Stash, and its fanboy staff and customers. The Secret Stash comic book and novelty store in Red Bank, New Jersey serves not only as a place for people to buy, sell, or trade cool stuff; but also to hang out and be part of a community that loves comics. “Comic Book Men” documents the daily banter of The Secret Stash and its employees and devoted customers, as well as the emotion of buying and selling collectibles and comic memorabilia. Season three will step back into the lives of these hilarious Stashers and follow them as they celebrate the 75th Anniversary of Superman, re-visit the devastation of Hurricane Sandy a year later, and even explore the festivities of the launch of their own comic book!
