This Saturday we'd like to share four pieces of news for you....

As Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter takes over NYC's Comic Con, we have a few fun goodies we'd like to share with you :)

First off, I'll tell you that the blu-ray version of the film will be coming out on October 23rd (what a difference between covers, huh?!)

To promote the films upcoming release, the Comic Con panel (made up of the film's Content Director/Producer, Key Concept Artist and Animation Director) previewed and discussed the animated novel, The Great Calamity - which will be exclusive to the upcoming blu-ray release! 
They ALSO revealed two new poster images at Comic Con as well! Hand-drawn by their Concept Artist, Nimit Malavia - I mean...can we say talented, or what?!

During a webcast on October 11 that was hosted by Scholastic, J.K. Rowling said that her next project will likely be a book for young readers. The webcast was aimed at promoting a new website called The Harry Potter Reading Club, which features author interviews, and fan discussions of the books. 

Will Anything Ever Compare to Harry?

  1. JK Rowling to write another YA book?! WOOOHOOO! :D

  2. Nothing will compare to Harry, but hey, she's a great writer, so if she invents another imaginative fictional world, then I don't see why it shouldn't be a great book.

  3. I love the vampire panels!!!! Also, so excited for JK Rowling. Love her stuff even if it's for the littlies.

  4. I heard about the YA novel coming from Rowling. I am really curious about what she will be doing.
