The OC star Adam Brody will be showing off his comic book art skills this weekend (22/23JUL06) at the annual Comic-Con convention in San Diego, California, after creating a new cartoon strip with his future father-in-law. The TV hunk and his co-star girlfriend Rachel Bilson's dad Danny Bilson have created new comic book series RED MENACE, loosely based on US Senator JOE MCCARTHY's communist witch hunt, which had a stranglehold on Hollywood in the 1950s. Bilson and Brody partnered with comic book guru PAUL DeMEO on the project, which the trio will launch at America's biggest comic book convention this weekend (22JUL06).
