Thunderbirds at San Diego Comic Con

As some of you may have seen on the San Diego Comic Con website – Jamie Anderson will be joining a panel at the event celebrating 50 years of Thunderbirds. As Gerry Anderson’s iconic Thunderbirds series turns 50 next year, Jamie and the executive producers of the new Thunderbirds Are Go series Richard Taylor (Jane and the Dragon, The Wot Wots, LOTR), and Giles Ridge (Harry Potter: Behind the Magic, The Illustrated Mum) talk about Thunderbirds’ incredible history and continuing impact on the world of entertainment, and the importance of remaining true to the ethos that made the show so successful first time around.

The Thunderbirds Q&A will be moderated by head writer of the new series Rob Hoegee (Slugterra, Generator Rex, Teen Titans), and takes place on Thursday July 24, 2014 4:30pm – 5:30pm.

Over it’s four-decade-plus history, Comic-Con International has continually presented comic books and comic art to a growing audience.
