"War of the Worlds: Goliath".
28 December 2012 | by See all my reviews

I had the chance to see a special preview screening of the film during the 2012 San Diego Comic-Con. I had been privy to concept art and preview footage since 2007. Joe Pearson and Leon Tan did a great job of bringing this story to life and I sincerely hope they continue to bring us great entertainment like this. My first exposure was to Joe Pearson's anime film, "Highlander: Search for Vengeance" through the Official Highlander Message Board. I have been a fan of all types of animation since my early child hood when I would watch the short subject cartoons in the dark of my local movie houses. Those childhood memories inspired me later on in life to pursue a career as am amateur artist and join the San Diego Comic Con in 1977.

I also wrote an article on this film for Impact Online Magazine which you can read at; www.impactonline.co/news/851-sdcc-wotw-goliath-stands- tall
