LA Premier! Captured Aural Phantasy Theater, the only group authorized by the legendary 50’s publisher EC to perform their comics, will present their new show WEIRD SCI-FI 3D, a performance of the lost 1954 EC 3D sci-fi comic for the first time ever in Los Angeles –2 Nights Only, Friday and Saturday, March 25 and 26! We debuted the newly discovered comic at San Diego Comic-con International last summer and now bring it to our hometown audiences in conjunction with WonderCon in downtown LA.
Working with members of the EC family and Los Angeles’ 3-D SPACE, the lost sci-fi comic, in the vein of titles like “Weird Science,” was converted into three dimensions for this premier, in the format as intended over 60 years ago, but never completed. As part of the show, Captured Aural Phantasy Theater will be dramatically reading stories from the unpublished comic, while the images are shown to the audience in 3D. But don’t worry! Special 3D glasses will be provided to enjoy the projected artwork! The stories will be filled out with live music, sound effects and original bits rounding out an evening of Captured Aural Phantasy Theater’s unique storytelling style.
In 1953 and 54, EC planned three 3D comics, but only two were published. The third, focused on sci-fi and fantasy stories, was dropped amid the fizzling of the fad and the comic industry’s run-ins with the Senate and censors. Captured Aural Phantasy Theater has partnered with EC to premier the unpublished 3D issue at this event. The comic will be performed LIVE at the historic Bob Baker Marionette Theater and part of the shows’ procedes will go to help the theater.
