CBR's last two years at Comic-Con International have been very fun and very unusual, working and living on a 42-foot yacht in San Diego Harbor. Can you think of a better place to spend an evening after a busy of the convention? Throughout the Comic-Con weekends, CBR TV conducted interviews with a variety of comics creators, film actors and other industry professionals for what we like to call the CBR BOAT SHOW, with guests including "Smallville's" Justin Hartley and Sam Witwer, Stan Lee; "Umbrella Academy" and My Chemical Romance frontman Gerard Way; Mike Mignola; Grant Morrison; Method Man; and Joe Quesada, just to name a small few.
The experience has been a huge hit with fans and guests and we're bringing back the CBR Boat show for a third year, but with one change -- we got a bigger boat!
For 2009, the CBR Boat Show takes place on a newer, bigger yacht than we've used before. Once again, the CBR TV presentation will be filmed in high definition, with multiple video interviews to be pubished daily over the course of the Comic-Con weekend.
CBR TV has already setup interviews with a number of top talents, including some surprise guests from Hollywood, but we’re still booking guests. If you’re a publicist who’d like to pitch a visit from your client, or a comics writer or artist with a big announcement you’d like to push in a unique way during Comic-Con, drop us an email or call 323-306-0636 ext. 101.
The CBR Boat Show will be a very exciting component of CBR’s full coverage of Comic-Con International, taking place July 23 - 26 in San Diego. Look for more news about CBR’s coverage of Comic-Con International in the coming weeks!
Hope to see you there!
