Showtime's Penny Dreadful to make its San Diego Comic-Con debut

We’ve been up to our necks in San Diego Comic-Con news over the last couple of weeks and it’s not even here yet! Along with “The Walking Dead”, “iZombie”, “Bates Motel”, and so much more, you can also expect to see Showtime’s new horror series “Penny Dreadful” make its San Diego Comic-Con debut as the opening day headliner on Thursday, July 24th, from 6:00-7:00 PM with a panel session in Ballroom 20.

Featured panelists will include series stars Josh Hartnett, Reeve Carney, and Harry Treadaway and series creator, writer, and executive producer John Logan. The panel will be moderated by Emmy Award-nominated actress (and major "Penny Dreadful" fan) Aisha Tyler.

Furthermore, the over 150,000 lanyards worn by all Comic-Con attendees will be branded by "PENNY DREADFUL" (taking over for prior Showtime hit series "Dexter").

Additionally, there will be talent signings, exclusive merchandise offers, and more throughout the weekend. Fans can visit the Entertainment Earth booth (#2343) to purchase a deluxe deck of tarot cards inspired by the ones used throughout the series along with character action figures, including Ethan Chandler and Vanessa Ives. They can also visit the Titan Books booth (#5537) to purchase special "PENNY DREADFUL" deluxe hardcover editions of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, Bram Stoker’s Dracula, and Oscar Wilde’s A Picture of Dorian Gray, which each contain original black and white illustrations by Martin Stiff, Louie de Martinis, and Ian Bass.
