Amazon Prime Video is sure to stir up excitement at this year’s New York Comic Con with two of their newest shows hitting the floor of the Javits Center. Enter The Tick and Lore – two cult favorites that will be brought to life in the epicenter of sci-fi fandom in a completely immersive way.
Amazon Prime Video made its first foray into the hero universe with The Tick this past summer, which subsequently took San Diego Comic-Con fans by storm. The Tick will be back in a big blue way for this year’s NYCC and is bringing his companion, Dangerboat, along for the ride.
Beginning on October 5th and running through October 8th, NYCC attendees will have the chance to immerse themselves in a completely explorable, larger-than-life cigarette vessel that will be built out on the convention’s main floor. Dangerboat, the opinionated sidekick and headquarters of The Tick’s Overkill, becomes a prominent meeting destination and character throughout the series storyline in both Season 1 and 2 of the popular original series. Guests will be delighted by hidden surprises within the experience, such as its ability to speak to the occupants themselves, customized promotional items that can be unlocked using their RFID wristbands, lighting affects, emergency alarms, and more. Attendees will depart Dangerboat feeling as if they’ve just stepped into the world of The Tick itself.
NYCC attendees and horror buffs seeking the ultimate Instagram photo will be thrilled by Amazon Prime Video’s Museum of Lore. In promotion of the new anthology series Lore, this unsettling, picture-perfect experience will take place in the North Concourse of the Javits Center. Inspired by one of the fastest-growing podcasts in the United States, Amazon Prime Video’s Lore activation will uncover some of the most haunting myths of all-time in the most “shareable” way. Guests will be taken through three rooms – “Gene’s Bedroom,” “The Unveiled,” and “The Beast Inside,” each of which will tell a different, blood curdling tale from Lore all while providing attendees with must-share photo opportunities.
The Beast Inside
Based on the podcast created by Aaron Mahnke and from Gale Anne Hurd, an Executive Producer of The Walking Dead and Glen Morgan, an Executive Producer of The X-Files, comes Lore, launching worldwide exclusively for Prime members on Amazon Prime Video on Friday the 13th of October.
Amazon Prime Video’s panel lineup for New York Comic Con features the highly-anticipated upcoming Prime member exclusive series Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan, Lore and Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams, as well as returning favorites The Man in the High Castle and The Tick.
To top off their NYCC involvement, Amazon Prime Video will also be featuring the world’s first voice activated Echo Escape room powered by Intel, inspired by Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan.
