Part 2: The Mary Sue Discusses Women In Comics With Dark Horse Comics’ Editor In Chief

Yesterday we brought you the first part in our two-part conversation with Dark Horse Comics’ Editor in Chief Scott Allie. We discussed their Buffy the Vampire Slayer universe, Tomb Raider, and just some of the phenomenal talent they’ve got behind them. Today we focus on Greg Rucka, Hellboy, diversity in the industry, and literally judging a book by its cover.

8 Things We’re Thankful For

Bear with us, non-American readers: Thanksgiving is tomorrow, at least in the U.S., and it’s made us at The Mary Sue contemplate the variety of things from this year we’re thankful for.

From comics to movies to cosplay and other con-related fun, here’s just a sample of what has made us happy to be geeks in 2012. Getting a bit sappy for a moment, this list is dedicated to the thing we’re most thankful for: Our readers. Well, second most thankful. There’s Batman, after all.

My First Trip To Dragon*Con Or, That Time I Fell Into Cosplay Quicksand

As a person who attends several pop-culture conventions a year, it’s been my yearly goal to try and attend at least one show I haven’t been to before. I already did that twice this year with Emerald City Comicon and GeekGirlCon but I figured, what the heck, why not make it a trilogy? So I went to Dragon*Con in Atlanta, Georgia. I’d heard it was crazy. I’d heard it was cosplay central. I wasn’t prepared for either. Read on for details about the trip as well as tons of photos!

Things We Saw Today: A Nerdy Proposal at GeekGirlCon

We’re major sucker for con proposals. This weekend at Geek Girl Con (which our own Susana and Jill attended), it was Cierra, who proposed to her boyfriend (now fiancé) Gahan. She proposed with a custom Magic: The Gathering “Rings Of Brightearth” card, the bottom of which said “Will you Marry Me?” (When Geeks Wed)

This Exists... Because of A Lady

Teal Sherer And Felicia Day Discuss Vaginas In The Latest Episode Of My Gimpy Life [VIDEO]

I finally got the opportunity to meet (and actually hang out with) actress Teal Sherer at GeekGirlCon this past weekend in Seattle and was delighted to find we got along just as well in person as online. Most of you probably know Sherer from her role as Venom on The Guild but she’s recently branched out into her own comedic web series titled My Gimpy Life. It’s loosely based on her own experiences as a disabled actress living in Los Angeles, and while I may be biased, it’s pretty hilarious so far. The latest episode features her Guild co-star and real-life pal, Felicia Day, as they both audition for the same role. Having been on one disability panel with Sherer at GGC and watching her on another I can tell you she’s got a great handle on how to educate while being funny and is unapologetic about showing what those of us hear from other people on a daily basis. There’s some adult language in this episode, just as a warning.

Hit the jump to watch episodes one and two if you haven’t already.

Things We Saw Today: Hanie Mohd’s Wonder Woman Gown

I admit, I’m terribly biased because Hanie Mohd is my Womanthology artist but I have a pie ready to hit the face of anyone who says this isn’t gorgeous. She previously illustrated a stylish, but more casual Wonder Woman dress but decided to draw something more “mature and glamourous” this time around. Please, someone pay her to do an officially licensed clothing and accessories line. We will buy it all. (via Hanie Mohd) Now, let’s take a look at what else we saw today…

This weekend marks the first-ever GeekGirlCon! The new pop-culture even will be taking place October 8 & 9 at the Seattle Center Northwest Rooms and EMP Museum in Washington State. None of us here at The Mary Sue could attend this year (and for that we are inconsolable) but we wanted to give you the scoop on what and who you could see the show.
