Pinocchio sequel gets punchy with Punchinello


And finally, the entire cast stands revealed … above is the last teaser image before Comic-Con for Pinocchio, Vampire Slayer and the Great Puppet Theater by Van Jensen and Dusty Higgins, introducing Punchinello to the team of undead-fighting puppets.

The first preview of Pinocchio, Vampire Slayer and the Great Puppet Theater will be revealed at Comic-Con during a spotlight panel on Higgins and Jensen. The duo will show off pages and the cover of the sequel to their 2009 graphic novel on Thursday, July 22 at 1:30 p.m. in Room 3. Higgins and Jensen (and Pinocchio himself) also will be set up at the SLG Publishing booth throughout the show to do signings and sketches. And on Friday, July 23, at 4:50 p.m., Jensen will be on the Indy Writers Unite! panel (also featuring Larry Marder, Terry Moore, Carla Speed McNeil and James Sturm) in Room 3.

And a big thanks to Van and Dusty for letting us roll these out!

I’ve said it before, but if you are going to name your cast of characters after the commedia dell’arte characters (who were often the subjects of puppet shows) at least make them somewhat recognizable to aficionadoes of commedia.

Seriously, I love commedia and comics so I should be the target audience here, but right now, I’m annoyed because looking at these illustrations, I would not have matched the character designs with the centuries-old characters without the name-tags.
