Celebrating 50 years of Thunderbirds at San Diego Comic Con

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.

About Comic Con

Comic-Con has presented literally thousands of special guests at its conventions over the years, bringing comics creators, science fiction and fantasy authors, film and television directors, producers, and writers, and creators from all aspects of the popular arts together with their fans for a fun and often times candid discussion of various art forms. The event has seen an amazing array of comics and book publishers in its Exhibit Hall over the years. Over it’s four-decade-plus history, Comic-Con International has continually presented comic books and comic art to a growing audience. That love of the comics medium continues to be its guiding factor as the event moves toward its second half-century as the premier comic book and popular arts style convention in the world.
