They will then be released weekly online by the entertainment site IGN beginning March 29, before being added to and the @AlienAnthology social media channels alongside exclusive behind-the-scenes content starting May 5. However, the official debut of the project comes at this week’s Emerald City Comic-Con in Seattle, where a selection of material from the project will be screened on Friday, with an additional screening set for March 23 at C2E2 in Chicago and March 30 at WonderCon in Anaheim.
