Comic-Con: The BSG Legacy, Still Alive and Kicking

We’re still a day removed from the annual Star Wars celebration here at Comic-Con, but already I’m feeling some big love for the other franchises that have been brought back and dusted off at this year’s event.

Comic-Con Opening Day: The TRON Buzz Starts Now

We and an ever-changing lineup of invited guests perform geek-related material for people who are just like us, in an environment we hope feels like the This …

Television Shows Flood San Diego Comic-Con

Over the last few years, it’s become increasingly obvious that the San Diego Comic-Con needs a new name, given the amount of non-comic-related guests, panels and material to be found there (Not that I’m complaining; it isn’t every day that you get to walk into Castle Grayskull, unless you’re He-Man).
