The San Diego Comic Con, held over last weekend, served as the launchpad for THE LOST TALES. There was a Lost Tales panel Friday, with JMS, Bruce Boxleitner, Tracy Scoggins, Peter Woodward, producers Samm Barnes and Doug Netter in attendance. JMS had a solo panel on Saturday, covering the many projects the Great Maker has cooking.
There were B5 signing sessions throughout the weekend, with even Doug Netter, who usually prefers staying behind the scenes, sitting in on the Lost Tales signing! Claudia Christian and Pat Tallman were also at the Con. For the B5-centric, there is a full report on the proceedings at the Comic Con thread, over at the JMSnews forums.
Great work by Jan (moderator and queen of the B5 script collectors), Jon (SmileOfTheShadow) and Joe Nazzaro, who moderated the Lost Tales panel. Additional reports can be found at Beyond The Rim and The Futon Critic.
Best Buy is including a big bonus with the Lost Tales DVD, a small comic memorializing Andrea Katsulas and Richard Biggs. It was given out at Comic Con and is only available in limited quantities. If you haven’t pre-ordered (or if your pre-order was delayed), dash right out and get your copy, while they last. Sales will determine whether we get more Lost Tales. JMS and Doug Netter again made that clear this weekend.
Meanwhile, interviews have been appearing in the leadup to the launch. As Tim mentioned, SciFi Weekly interviewed Bruce, Tracy, and Peter. SyFyPortal talked to Bruce, and both Dreamwatch and TV Zone talked with Tracy.
That’s all, folks! (for now.)
Happy launch day, everyone!
