I had a very fun full day at Comic-Con! I was able to make it to most of the panels that I wanted to except for the first one, on Escapist Fantasy because the line to pick up badges was massive. So I was bummed to miss a few authors, but I slipped into the Astroboy panel instead. This was cool for two reasons. One, I used to live in Japan where Astroboy was all kinds of popular. (well it's where he came from!) and two--Kristen Bell was on the panel. Sadly, Kristen didn't have any fresh original ideas for getting that Veronica Mars movie made, but she is more than willing to do it --I hope we get to see it made! They showed us some clips and the trailer and it looks like a cool movie. If you like that kind of stuff. :)
I sat in on three other panels...one to make sure I had a seat for the next panel which I was really interested in. Entertainment Weekly: Wonder Women: Female Power Icons in Pop Culture I was really interested in this panel because I loved the topic and also because I love the character of Juliet on LOST and Elizabeth Mitchell was on the panel! It was an excellent excellent panel and I hope to write more thoughts about it later. But who knows.
The fourth panel I attended was the Evolution of Fantasy with several of today's fantasy authors, including the very popular Patrick Rothfuss and Jacqueline Carey. This panel was very interesting and I jotted down quite a few notes...I feel it will be the inspiration for a few opinion posts in the future.
Anyway, just wanted to check in...hope you are all having great weeks!!
