030 Jennifer Drake bought a weekend pass to Comic Con and only went to two panels, and didn’t take any photos like I asked her to.
The following entry was written by Battlestar Galactica fan and friend of the blog Jennifer Drake.
The New York City Through Its Authors panel: “Hey. We wrote some books you’ve never heard of. New York is, like, awesome. It used to be totally way awesomer before 9/11 and Guiliani and shit. You should really read Time and Again by Jack Finney and yo! Wasn’t it cool that the Fantastic Four lived in New York? Thanks and enjoy the Con!”
The Battlestar: The Comic panel was, to put it succinctly, underwhelming. The five panelists honestly looked more eager to grab a post-Con beer than to discuss BSG for the ten or eleven rabid fans in the audience. During Q&A, it was I who asked the questions. Two of them, actually. (This is surprising on two levels: 1) I usually despise those pushy jerks who ask inevitably self-important questions and 2) it highlights the fact that I was, strangely, the nerdiest audience member at the BSG panel at NY Comic Con. I mean, I wear Christian Dior perfume and watch Jon & Kate Plus 8.) I thought Seamus Kevin Fahey was a hot piece of ass, but his answer to my question about the mythos of the Final Five was vague at best. Blah blah blah. I think the panel started late, ended early, and I was gone.
Like the Flash.
Chelsea says the Representation of Women in Comics panel was a big letdown. That’s a shame because it was one of the panels I was most looking forward to hearing about. She’s on her way to the Asian Americans and Super Heroes panel right now; hopefully that makes up for it.
Just got word from Jen; she’s gonna be on hand today with a camera, so we’re gonna get some pictures of people looking silly.
