Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 17, 2012
Tim Burton brought his latest addition to his hallowed filmography to Comic-Con this year. Frankenweenie is the loving tale of a boy and his dog.Of course, this is a reanimated Frankenstein patchwork dog, but a dog non the less. Shot in stop motion (and all in black and white), Frankenweenie started out as a short film created by Burton in 1984, but for Comic Con, he brought the original puppets, set pieces, and props from the film to a mini exhibit available for the public to see.

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 17, 2012
Needless to say, Comic-Con brings out a unique group of people.

But, we love it.
