The Filipino American action comedy, Lumpia with a Vengeance, will not only have a panel and exclusive screening at Comic-Con Special Edition — but also exclusives, a giveaway, and more.
The film, a crowdfunded sequel to the 2003 cult classic Lumpia, continues the story of Fogtown, where a lumpia-wielding avenger named Kuya is here to take on a crime syndicate selling drugs disguised as food. With the help of some friends both old and new, can they save the town?
Attendees of Comic-Con Special Edition will be treated to a screening on Friday, November 26 at 6:30PM PT in Room 26AB and a Q&A with writer/director Patricio Ginelsa, producer Lawrence Iriarte, executive producer Varinder Singh, associate producer Justin Quizon, and actors April Absynth, Earl Baylon, and Francis Custodio.
Additionally, the film has been turned into a comic — and illustrator Gerald Pilare and concept artist Patrick Ballesteros will also be on hand to discuss the indie comic book series.
Following the screening, everyone who attends will be given an exclusive print by Ballesteros to mark the first time a Filipino-made film about Filipino super heroes has aired at a CCI event. Attendees can bring it by Ballesteros’ booth in Artists Alley CC-30 the next day in order to have it signed.
Attendees will also be able to stop by Kids Heroes Productions in Small Press L-2 to pick up Comic-Con Special Edition exclusive variant covers of Lumpia with a Vengeance. Here’s a look at those:
