(Joshua Gilmore-Staff Writer)

Stan Lee’s Los Angeles Comic Con for 2017 has entered the books and the time has come for Nowhere California to share our adventures at this most excellent event. In the next few weeks, we will be unleashing our favorite moments and conversations for the world to enjoy. In the first installment, the guys from Nowhere have one hoot of a conversation and talk with Carlos Alazraqui.

     Carlos is the multi talented performer from in front of the camera and behind the microphone. The list of characters he has created and voiced can stretch for a decent length, but for one member of the Nowhere California team (namely me) the top of the list will always be held by a certain wallaby named Rocko. Luckily, that wallaby will be returning to thee small screen and to the advanced modern world in 2018 with a new “Rocko’s Modern Life” movie entitled “Static Cling.”

    The entire Nowhere California team would like to send our thanks to Carlos for taking the time to talk to us at the convention. It was a great pleasure and we hope everyone has enjoyed this edition of our LA Comic Con coverage.

 Beware the stars, there is an invasion looming and we have Nickelodeon to blame for this. The nostalgia trend continues to pick up steam at the kid’s cable network and they have announced that “Invader Zim” will be returning in a special television movie.

“As a network that prides itself on a 25-year history of creating groundbreaking, hilarious animation for kids, Invader Zim is one of our great loves. It’s been so exciting to see its popularity grow over the last decade through social media, consumer products, and the Zim comic books,” comments Nick’s senior VP, Content Development and Production, Animation, Chris Viscardi (via VARIETY)

The “Invader Zim” movie has jumped into the current mix of Nickelodeon’s blasts from the pasts, as several other classic NICKtoons are preparing for the television movie treatment.

The details of this production are still developing, but here are a few piece of information that is known. The creator of “Invader Zim”, Jhonen Vasquez, will be returning to lead this new era of Zim. Also, the original voice cast will be returning to give the proper touch to this event.

As details develop, we will pass that information on to you through this site and the Nowhere California Podcast, but for now there is no set air date.

 

Two Paths Cross At Last..

This installment of Nowhere California’s coverage of the 2016 Stan Lee Los Angeles Comic Convention has a short back story and that will lead us into the conversation with the multi-talented, Joe Ochman.

In the early days of Nowhere, the team would never have imagined that we would conduct interviews with people from the entertainment world and gain actual connections with this talented world, but that changed with the chance meeting with Satu and Steve J. Palmer from “Queen Gorya”. After that meeting, Steve J. Palmer started to line up interviews for the guys from Nowhere and one of those interviews was going to be with Joe Ochman.

Ochman is a multi-talented performer that has delved into many aspects of the entertainment world, he has taken his talented from the stage to the screen and behind the scenes. The chance to talk with Joe was an opportunity that the Nowhere California team couldn’t wait to talk with him, but a few speed bumps appeared in the way (so goes the life of the independent podcaster) It took a little time, but good things come to those who wait and we jumped to the chance to talk with Joe at the 2016 Stan Lee Comic Con.

It might have taken some time to get this conversation with Joe, but it was a pleasure to talk with this man. You should take the time to check out his credits and I wouldn’t be surprised if you see some very familiar titles.

The entire Nowhere California team would like to thank Joe for taking the time to talk with us at the convention. We hope it won’t be too long before we get the opportunity to delve deeper into your career and talk again.

 

NowhereCalifornia.com Reaches Its First Year..

(Joshua Gilmore- Staff Writer)

It started one year ago today, this site was launched and took the concept of Nowhere California to a whole new level.

Nowhere California started in 2011 and it was just another conversation between two friends, but these conversation started taking place in front of a microphone and unleashed on the internet. It was as simple as that, but as Nowhere California evolved, the team grew and new accomplishments were reach.

The episodes started to grow and the team ventured out of the Nowhere city limits, as they dove into the world of conventions and conducting interviews. It was with each accomplishment, the Nowhere California family stuck to their ideals of what they wanted to produce and not to become just another podcast.

It was that mindset that grew into this website and, as we mark our first year on the net, we want to simply say THANK YOU.

Thank you for following the journey of Nowhere California.

Thank you for listening to the original podcast and all of the other podcast that have sprung from this little idea.

Thank you for checking out this site

And thank you for continuing this adventure with us.

One bad day. It just takes one bad day to turn the sanest mortal into the darkest of souls and just one bad day is the lynch pin behind one of most infamous DC graphic novels, “The Killing Joke”. This graphic novel is held in high regards in most comic book circles and will be making its animated film debut in a few short weeks.

“The Killing Joke” will be released digitally on July 23,2016 and Blu-Ray/Dvd on August 2. This film will break new ground for the popular DC animated movie series, as “The Killing Joke” will be rated R. That rating is a relief to many, as any lower rating would be a disservice to the legacy of this story.

As you can tell quickly from the trailer, the legacy of this story is well protect in many ways and two of those reasons come in the form of the voice talents. The men that are synonymous with this classic rivalry, Kevin Conroy and Mark Hamill will headline this film.

A reminder, if you’re a fan of the original graphic novel or you’re a fan of the DC animated universe, this is an entry that should not be miss digitally on July 23 and on August 2 in the Blu-Ray/Dvd formats. Also, in the Blu-Ray/Dvd format, watch for a special deluxe edition and the limited edition Joker figure that will be included.

The Days of the Dead coverage take an animated turn and the guys from Nowhere talk with Angus Oblong.

There might be a rare few that might be clueless on who this man is or it might be the other way around, so here is a quick refresher to jog your memory.

After a short return to normal Nowhere California business, it is time to finish up our coverage from the 2016 Long Beach Comic Expo and release our final 3 interviews from this event.

In this installment, the guys from Nowhere talk with the talented Katie Leigh. The career of Katie Leigh can easily be summed up as the voices from your childhood. Leigh’s list of credits can be looked at like a roadmap of iconic children’s programming and you can sample some of this work through her animation demo..

Katie Leigh was a delight to talk with and our excitement shows in this conversation, some excitement shows more than others, but we would like to thank Katie for this opportunity.

A New Chapter Is Added To Ducktales..

(Joshua Gilmore- Staff Writer)

Life has been like a hurricane, but it’s time to return to an easier time and a world of rich ducks swimming in gold coins.

The news broke in 2015 that the “Disney Afternoon” classic Ducktales would be returning to the small screen in 2017 and would find a new home on the Disney X D channel.

Today, Disney revealed the first image of the relaunched series..
DUCKTALES

As you can quickly see from the image, all of the classic characters will be returning and Disney has decided to run with the classic form of animation, then the CG animation that saturates today’s animation world.

The Ducktales relaunch does not have a set start date, but stay tuned to this website for updates… woo oo.

It has been an amazing journey, but it’s time to finish our coverage from the 2015 Comikaze. This adventure was something that the entire Nowhere California Team could never imagine and we cannot wait to make this trip in 2016.

Now, with all of that said, we have planned to finish our coverage with blast from our childhood past and talk with Bill Kopp. Kopp has worked in every position in Hollywood and developed a career that has spanned several decades, but his work in animation has been Kopp’s long lasting legacy.

Kopp has had his hands in some of the greatest franchises and cult classics, one of those cult classics being Eek The Cat and that cat is one of the many reason Nowhere California wanted to sit down with this creative mind.
