SVENGOOLIE Heads To THE DC UNIVERSE THIS OCTOBER

OK, we all know the DC Universe, but you may not all know who SVENGOOLIE is. SVENGOOLIE is ME.TV’s the late-night Horror show host, think, Elvira’s movie macabre. He has that classic feel you want from a horror show host, and now he is heading to the DC universe.

Press Release:


SVENGOOLIE MEETS THE DC UNIVERSE THIS OCTOBER
MeTV’s Late-Night Horror Show Icon Rubs Elbows with the World’s Greatest Super-Heroes
in 8-Page Comic Book Story
 
BURBANK, CA and CHICAGO, IL – (September 19, 2019) – DC and MeTV are bringing fans one of the quirkiest pop-culture mashups of all time when SVENGOOLIE MEETS THE DC UNIVERSE, a series of custom inserts featured in DC comic books on sale throughout the month of October. Each two page “chapter” will be written by DC Publisher and Svengoolie super fan Dan DiDio , with an assist from Svengoolie himself, plus art by Chris Jones.


Svengoolie has been a beloved TV staple since the 1970’s, putting a humorous spin on classic science fiction and horror films from Hollywood history. Since 1979, Rich Koz, a.k.a. Svengoolie has entertained legions of sci-fi and horror fans with comedy sketches, jokes and song parodies; the show has become a highlight of MeTV’s line-up, airing Saturday nights at 8PM/7C.


“This is a dream come true for someone who’s been a life-long fan of DC super-heroes since I first got into comics as a kid,” says Koz. “I couldn’t be prouder to have Svengoolie standing side by side with these iconic characters.  I definitely identify with them, too; after all, I have to put on my costume before I can do my job, too!”


On the run from (what else?) an army of homicidal rubber chickens, Svengoolie gets some unexpected help from Wonder Woman and John Stewart, who urge him to get to the Hall of Justice. But before he can make it to safety, he has to survive a showdown against the one responsible for these perilous pullets, The Joker! 


“I’m a huge fan of classic sci-fi and horror movies and I grew up with Svengoolie,” said DiDio. As a fan and a publisher, I never thought I’d have a chance to have Svengoolie in our books, let alone write the story. This is a fantastic opportunity and I couldn’t be more excited.”


Fans attending New York Comic Con will get a chance to learn more about this comic and celebrate Svengoolie’s 40th anniversary during a special tribute panel hosted by Dan DiDio on Friday, October 4 from 2:45-3:45pmET at the Jacob Javits Convention Center, room 1A24.
