Last night the first launch party for Daniel (heretofore referred to as “Danny”) Boyd’s graphic novel reinvention of his classic movie, “Chillers,” took place at Lost Legion Games & Comics The Rifleman in South Charleston. The place was packed. It ws a rousing success, and our PopCult cameras were there to record part of the action.

Writer and Director Daniel Boyd, Author William (Bill) Bitner, Author Jason Pell, Bus Driver Peterr Jesus (Norman Jordan), Chillers Graphic Novel Cover Girl Erica Martin and collaborators,  Betsy Rayvenn Allen and Jason Pell were on hand, as your PopCulteer popped in with his sidekick for the evening, the world-famous Kitty Killton.

This evening, Danny and the Chillers crew will be at  Lost Legion Games & Comics, The Keep, in Princeton, 5:30 PM to 8. Friday the tour hits Lost Legion Games & Comics, The Castle, in Beckkley, also at 5:30, and Saturday the book tour heads North to Lost Legion Games & Comics, The Vault, in Parkersburg, at 2 PM.

On to the ;photos!

Meeting the fans...

Meeting of the minds: Danny greets Kitty

Somebody alert the media!

Signing aaway for the fans. It's all about the fans.

More intense media scrutiny

Part of the fun of covering a book signing is hijacking other people's photo ops


A warm greeting for contributing author, Bill Bitner...

...who is immediately put to work signing books.

Under the watchful eye of Danny.

Almost too much coolness for one photo, Kitty Killton and Peterr Jesus.

As we leave, Danny was still pimping that book. You really should go pick up a copy. Signed copies are still available at Lost Legion!

Once more, in ominous painting style.
