Comic Con has always been on my list of events to experience, at least once in my lifetime. This year the opportunity presented itself plus the added bonus of experiencing it with my son. If you are a lover of comedy (Family Guy, Bob’s Burgers, American Dad, Archer), comics, cartoons, sci-fi, mysteries, drama or anything reminiscent of your childhood, you will love to attend Comic Con. The event which last 4 days, takes over San Diego and New York once a year in these two cities respectively.
Comic Con is filled with everyone’s favorite comic book characters, actors, authors, illustrators, editors, video game creators, celebrities and of course avid fans. How could you come to this event and be disappointed?
To top it off, while at Comic Con we got the opportunity to interview Actor, Author, Producer Amber Benson. Many of you may know her from as Tara on Buffy The Vampire Slayer (TV series), but she truly is a jack of all trades. Amber Benson is what we call ‘a maker of things’. A prolific writer, she is the author of the five-book Calliope Reaper-Jones urban fantasy series for Penguin and the middle grade book Among The Ghosts for Simon and Schuster. Behind the camera, she co-directed the Slamdance feature film Drones and (co-wrote) and directed the BBC animated series The Ghosts of Albion. Amber’s acting career is making a come back as later this year she will appear as head vamp ‘Amelie’ in Morganville: The Series for Geek & Sundry. For those of you looking for a good sci-fi novel, her new book The Witches of Echo Park comes out in early January 2015. Be sure to check out our video interview with Amber.
Now anyone who knows me knows I’m a huge fan of Game of Thrones…Well while at Comic Con we had the honor of meeting Kristian Nairn & Daniel Portman from the cast. They hosted a Q&A with the Game of Throne fans, all questions were answered and boy were they hilarious! Check out some of the footage on our Youtube channel.
