Keanu and Gerard and Ogre…

Several music-themed events will take place at downtown’s Comic-Con International, beginning July 24.

Rapper Method Man will promote his upcoming eponymous comic book from the Hachette Book Group. The former Wu-Tang Clan member will do a Thursday autograph-signing as well as appear on “The Black Panel” alongside BET/Black Entertainment Television president (and comic-book writer) Reggie Hudlin.

The goth-rock musical Repo! The Genetic Opera will be the subject of a preview panel with Saw director Darren Lynn Bousman. Performers from the film will also appear, including Alexa Vega (Spy Kids) and Ogre, of the band Skinny Puppy (Thursday, 9:00 to 10:00 p.m., room 6B).

Also on Thursday, Madonna’s (outgoing?) hubby Guy Ritchie will promote his upcoming film RocknRolla, scheduled for an October release.

Thursday afternoon, Keanu Reeves will appear on a panel promoting his upcoming remake of The Day the Earth Stood Still. Rumors are rife that Reeves will perform in the evening with several local musicians at a private party for a locally connected comic publisher.

Tori Amos will discuss her graphic novel Comic Book Tattoo, published by locally based Image Comics (Saturday, 11:30 a.m.). Amos will also do an autograph-signing at 2:00 p.m., though only for 200 selected fans who purchase the comic at the Image booth (#2729).

Shocker Toys will introduce action figures from the cartoon heavy metal band Dethklok, from the Cartoon Network’s Metalocalypse. Available only at the Shocker booth (#3948), the action figures are limited to 500 sets and priced at $80 each. The company’s vinyl action figures also include MC Chris, the band Gwar, and the central character from MTV’s show The Maxx. Members of the Suicide Girls will also appear at the Shocker booth.

On Saturday, My Chemical Romance front man Gerard Way will plug his Dark Horse comic The Umbrella Academy on a panel named “Born under a Black Sun.” At the Dark Horse booth, artist Stainboy Reinel will sign copies of his new book Vicious Intent: The Rock ’N’ Roll Art and Exploitation of Stainboy Reinel.
