I wasn't able to attend DC Comics' "Women of DC" Panel at New York Comic Con but I'm so glad they brought together Babs Tarr, Gail Simone, Marguerite Bennett, Caitlin Kittredge, Meredith Finch, Amanda Conner, Becky Cloonan, and Amanda Salmons for a talk. Here's a few more words they added after the fact.Read More
Awesome tech-savvy gal vs. internet asshole. Relatable.
Batgirl issue #36, the second issue since the much-talked-about creative reboot on the title, comes out tomorrow, and we're pretty stoked about it. We had the chance to sit down with the creative team behind the comic at NYCC, and talk about the reception to their first issue, their new approach to Babs, and where she's going next.Read More
Or should I say Flame KING.
Adventure Time's been on a bit of a hiatus lately, but the series is back on Cartoon Network, starting with "Ghost Fly." We though that was certainly enough of a timely event to share the fruits of our New York Comic Con roundtable interview with Kent Osborne, AT's head of story, and Jessica DiCicco, the voice of Flame Princess.Read More
We Talked To The Cast And Crew Of Bob’s Burgers About Gender-Bending, A Potential Movie, And “If Looks Could Kale”

The Bob's Burgers team was gracious enough to answer questions on everything from the recent Bob's Burgers porn parody to their musical abilities (or lack thereof), and dropped lots of juicy hints about what to expect from this season. Read on, girl.Read More
Dance your Con cares away!
As a Henson nerd, one of the highlights of New York City Comic Con for me was attending the "Jim Henson Company: Upcoming Comics With Archaia" panel. Unfortunately, it also gave me some pretty unrealistic career goals. How exactly does one become a Henson historian? Just asking for a friend.Read More

We Talked to the Cast and Crew of Sleepy Hollow About Season Two, Female Representation, and Orphan Black
"Well, Ben Franklin's pissed."
Don’t lose your heads or anything (pause for me uproariously laughing at my own joke), but I got the chance to talk with some of the cast and crew of Sleepy Hollow—including Orlando Jones (Captain Irving) and Lyndie Greenwood (Jenny Mills) at NYCC. Among the topics of conversation: Sheriff Reyes' backstory, the show's treatment of female characters, and how Jones isn't the only one ass over elbow in love with Orphan Black. Here. Let me fill you in.Read More
Three guesses for #1
The internet found itself positively in conniptions lately when the long-awaited first name of Star Wars' Emperor Palpatine was revealed. Well, some corners of the Internet. The nerdy, vaguely bored bits. Others of you were more focused on, like, current events and shit. I can respect that.Read More

All aboard the train to Harmontown
Reasons I loved this year's New York Comic Con: I got to see great cosplay. I was able to buy five amazing posters in ten minutes. (My bank account's not happy, but I am.) I had the chance to meet some of you guys at Geek Girl Headquarters. Oh, and I got to interview Community and Rick & Morty creator Dan Harmon. That's kind of a big one.Read More
Interviews are the quenchiest!
This past Thursday at New York Comic Con we got the rare opportunity to sit down with Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko, and pepper them with questions about Korra and Aang, the upcoming themes of Book Four, and writing their characters as young adults rather than older teens. We even got our own scoop: Bryan's favorite weird animal hybrid from the upcoming season. Okay, so it's a little scoop, but now you're definitely going to read the article, aren't you?Read More
