Comic-Con 2014

Comic Con 2014

Once again, Eclipse Magazine returned to Comic-Con this year along with GeekScholars who once again did their amazing movie podcasts.  For myself, it was quite an adventure.  Having never been to Comic before, I initially envisioned a magical land where the streets are lined with comic books and it is a Trekkie nirvana.  Well, nothing could have prepared me for approximately 130,000 diehard fans brimming around the San Diego convention center! From never-ending press panels to fan autograph signings to colorful booths advertising TV’s hottest shows, movies, comic books, and video games, it wasn’t just an event– it was an experience!

I had the exciting opportunity to chat with cast and crew for some of tv’s hottest shows this year – HBO’s Game Of Thrones, FX’s The Strain and Archer, CBS’s Persons of Interest, BBC’s Orphan Black and the upcoming Intruders!  Stay tuned for upcoming video footage of some of your favorite stars, producers, writers, and directors . . .
