CONTEST: Win a ‘Musical Anatomy of a Superhero’ Superhero Super Pack

Musical Anatomy of a SuperheroThe annual Musical Anatomy of a Superhero Comic-Con panel is getting a big upgrade for 2014, and to celebrate the panel organizers are throwing together a cool prize pack to give away to one of our readers. The panel’s been a favorite of ours – it even made our ‘dark horse’ list for Thursday’s schedule  – so we’re excited to help get the word out and fill the room.

What is Musical Anatomy of a Superhero, you ask? It’s a panel where composers from Hollywood’s biggest movies and television shows talk about “the process of creating the musical voice behind the superhero, explain the challenges when bringing a comic book character or story to life and writing music to reflect the story line”. Audience members will be able to hear the composers’ work over film and television clips, some from projects which have never been shown to audiences.
