Following the cancellation of San Diego Comic-Con 2020 many online events and activities have been announced as part of the ‘Comic-Con@Home’ program. Among these will an ‘An Evening With Kevin Smith‘ panel on Saturday, July 25th at 6PM PDT.
According to the event listing the writer/director will discuss a number of topics:
Killroy Was Here ‘First Look’
Killroy Was Here is an upcoming comedy horror anthology film directed by and written by Smith and Andrew McElfresh. The film stars Azita Ghanizada, Ryan O’Nan, Harley Quinn Smith, Chris Jericho and Justin Kucsulain and was made in association with students of the Ringling College of Art and Design.The movie will feature a long-nosed monster designed by Robert Kurtzman and inspired by the “KilRoy Was Here” graffiti that popped up during World War II. Not much has been heard about the project since filming began in 2017 but the event listing says Kevin will be giving a ‘First look’ at the film during his ComicCon@Home Panel,
The event listing mentions that Kevin will be unveiling a new Funko Pop related to one of his movies – we are not sure if this will be the recently announced Iron Bob pop from Jay & Silent Bob Reboot or an as yet un-announced new figure; either way it will be something to look out for!
Kevin is expected to talk about his short web sit-com ‘Son In Lockdown’ that ha has been making as part of the TBS reality show ‘Celebrity Show-Off’; each episode features five stars creating online content that must attract the highest number of views to stay in the competition and continue to raise money for the celebs chosen charities.Son-in-Lockdown is a short sit-com based around his Family’s time in lockdown and also produced during the lockdown and features his family and friends such as daughter Harley Quinn Smith & long-time collaborator Jason Mewes.
MOOBY’S, the fictional restaurant from Kevin Smith’s movies, finally comes to life! The restaurant was trialed earlier in the year as a delivery/pick-up only service due to Covid-19 however the organisers have now opened as a physical pop-up experience from next week.Kevin is expected to talk about a special ‘Meal-at-home’ service (perhaps similar to ‘Blue Apron’) which will allow fans to make their own Mooby’s meal at home. Details to be confirmed.
Vegan Abbatoir Podcast
Kevin is expected to discuss the new Podcast ‘Vegan Abbatoir’ which he co-hosts with his daughter Harley Quinn Smith; where they will discuss all things vegan and lifestyle with each other and special guests. Smith became vegan as part of a new healthier lifestyle (and with encouragement from daughter Harley who was already vegan) after a heart-attack in 2018 nearly cost him his life.

HAPPY 21st BIRTHDAY, @harleyquinnsmith! Now that you’re an adult, I can finally tell you that while you’ve been a wonderful daughter, I’ve always thought of you as a friend first. I still remember the moment you were born, when I got to see your squishy l’il face for the first time. Those alien eyes which saw straight through me that day in 1999 (as brown as my own) made me always wanna give you lots to look forward to in this world – and maybe even someone to look up to as well. Being your Dad was a million to one shot (like literally: you once lived in my balls), but being your friend and fan has always been a no-brainer. You’re good people, Kiddo, and ever day, you gift me with the joy that comes from talking with you, or laughing together, or listening to music while we drive, or sharing a smoke. Speaking of greens, you saved my life when you asked me to go Vegan. So two and a half years later, when you asked me to co-host a plant-based podcast with you, you may have also mended my cholesterol-busted heart! As a guy who has been recording podcasts since 2007 when you were just 8 years old, I’m glad I lived long enough to enjoy one of my favorite pastimes (podcasting) with one of my favorite people in the world (you)! So if anyone out there is looking to get Harley something for her 21st birthday, may I suggest simply subscribing to our brand new podcast, VEGAN ABATTOIR! It sounds metal as Hell, but the Kid and I intend to slaughter misinformation and butcher bullshit about bein’ Vegan in the least triggering, non-preachy way: by having the audience ask us questions about going green that we, in turn, can ask smarter people than us to answer! Join me and the Birthday Girl in the Vegan Abattoir by clicking the link in my bio above! Happy Birthday, Harley! I love you and everything you stand for! #KevinSmith #HarleyQuinnSmith #VeganAbattoir #vegan #podcast #birthday #birthdaygirl #prouddad (Vegan Abattoir art by @thedarknatereturns!)
