You may be asking, what is SuperMansion? I was in the same boat last year. Somehow, the show had skipped my radar. But last year, when planning to attend New York Comic Con (NYCC), I accidently selected SuperMansion in the autograph lottery and won. I feel lucky anytime I win something, so how could I say no? I headed to the signing, through the pouring rain, at Hammerstein Ballroom. It turned out that the show was promoting the SuperMansion: War On Christmas program and the cast was delightful! In fact, I enjoyed meeting them so much, especially receiving the creepy elf that Gary Anthony Williams gave to me, that I decided to stay for the panel. When I got home, I caught up on the series and now I am a fan.
From the creators of Robot Chicken, SuperMansion is an emmy-nominated stop-motion animation show that takes a look at superheroes in a more human aspect. Not only are these characters fighting for justice and liberty but they are fighting to stay relevant to society. It is a delightfully funny and entertaining program.
This year’s holiday special is SuperMansion: Drag Me to Halloween which is premiering on October 5th on Crackle. The SuperMansion NYCC panel will occur on the same day, at 6:45 PM, on the main stage at the Javits Center. I was lucky enough to get a sneak peek at the special and found the episode to be a lot of fun. Cooch (voiced by Heidi Gardner) is by far my favorite storyline and it brings me back to being a child.
Need to catch up on SuperMansion before the panel? Both seasons 1 and 2 are available to stream on Crackle.
This is one panel you don’t want to miss! If you plan to attend, tell us about it on the FoCC forum!
