San Diego Comic Con is a mecca for talent across the entertainment industry. It’s no different this year with the news that Alexa Vega, talented actress from the Spy Kids franchise and many other roles, and Jesse McCartney, platinum selling recording artist, actor, and voice talent will both make a special appearance during the Arcana Comics Panel from 6:00 – 7:00 PM, Thursday, July 21st in room 23ABC.
Alexa Vega and Jesse McCartney are two of the stars in the upcoming 3-D luximation animated film, THE CLOCKWORK GIRL, based on the Arcana Comics graphic novel by Sean Patrick O’Reilly and Kevin Hanna.
In the timeless land of Haraway, a robot girl, Tesla (ALEXA VEGA), is given the gift of life from her creator, Wilhelm the Tinkerer. Tesla meets Huxley (JESSE MCCARTNEY), the monster boy, who happens to be the son of her creator’s chief rival. Together the two break into – and out of – ancient fortresses, fight robots, and travel from the depths of the ocean to the skies above as they attempt to solve the mystery of the plague that has stricken their town.
The 3-D luximation animated film also features the voice talents of Carrie-Anne Moss (THE MATRIX), Jeffrey Tambor (ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT), Brad Garrett (EVERYBODY LOVES RAYMOND), and Adrian Hough (MORTAL KOMBAT: LEGACY) amongst others.
THE CLOCKWORK GIRL (ISBN:9780062080394) was recently re-released by Harper Collins with a new forward by creators Sean Patrick O’Reilly and Kevin Hanna, along with playful, full-page pin-ups of the characters.
Also appearing at the Arcana Comics panel are Arcana founder Sean Patrick O’Reailly (KADE, THE CLOCKWORK GIRL), Erik Hendrix (SIDESHOWS), Brooke Burgess (BECOMING), Mike Kalvoda (STRAW/BANSHEE), Matt Wilson (SCROOGE & SANTA), and Ryan Colucci (HARBOR MOON).
