Francis Manapul’s BEAST LEGENDS Trailer

You may or may not know, but iFanboy favorite artist Francis Manapul pulls double duty as a TV personality. He's hosting a show called Beast Legends and it premeries on the Sci-Fi SyFy Channel on September 9th at 10pm EST/9pm CST.

Check out the trailer:

If you're one of our shifty, hockey-loving Canadian readers, you can find the show on History Television. The first six episodes are already available to watch on their website.


  1. I’ve seen all 6 and it’s a lot of fun. Francis is far and away the star of the show though.  Everyone else takes it a little too seriously (especially in the first few episodes), while Francis is just clearly having an awesome time the entire time.

    It’s definitely a little cheesy, but I enjoyed the 6 eps and I’ll watch more if they ever make more.

  2. One way he finds the time is doing 20 page comics.

  3. Canadian for the win! Gonna check this out immediately. (I heard him talk about it at FanExpo during his Sketch Off, but I couldn’t remember it specifically, so thanks for the reminder!)

  4. If you havent already you should listen to part 2 of Word Balloon w/ Francis its damn fine and it sounded like he had a blast doing the show.

  5. i actually just listened to that word balloon podcast today which made seeing this post a bit weird for me. lol

    Can’t wait for the show…i’ll be sure to check it out.  

  6. I just listened to the second half of the Word Balloon interview and this series sounds like great fun.  I’m definitely going to make an effort to check this one out.

  7. I love hockey! I love hockey!


    Oh wait, it takes more than that to be a Canadian. Like not living in Connecticut….. 

  8. and there is my thursday viewing line up right there!

  9. Definitely a great multi-tasker.  Heard about all of the crazy stunts and how much fun he was having WHILE he painted a stunning Flash piece for me at SDCC!  Can’t wait to see it!

  10. Watching the first show and it’s not bad actually. Interesting mostly for the locales visited and adventures had therein. 🙂
