While at the 2010 San Diego Comic Con, Eclipse Magazine had the pleasure of catching up with actor Christopher Judge as he was signing autographs for fans at the Holzheimer’s booth in the exhibit hall.
Talking to Christopher Judge is like talking to an old friend and indeed he has been one of Eclipse Magazine’s favorite interview subjects during our coverage of Stargate SG1 during it’s ten year run as a hit series in which he played the noble Jaffa warrior Teal’c .
Check out the exclusive video interview as Eclipse Magazine catches up with this versatile and talented actor/writer and photographer as he tells us about his upcoming projects including one with Bond actor, Roger Moore.
While Eclipsemagazine still has plenty more goodies to share with readers from our adventures at the 2010 San Diego Comic Con, I think it’s only fitting that we take a nostalgic look back at all the wonders the 4 day event had to share with us while we were there.
The San Diego Comic Con has a multitude of things to offer that cater to many different interests, be it comic books which were the original focus of the event when it first began, to action/adventure/Scifi movies, TV shows, collectibles, gaming, costuming or just getting to meet a favorite actor/writer/producer/artist.
“I got my picture taken with Bruce Greenwood!!!!!”
Oh sorry, I digressed there for a moment. Now that I’m back on track again, let’s take a look at some of the things that Comic Con had to offer a roving reporter wandering down the hallways and through the exhibit hall.
Hello readers of Eclipse Magazine. For those of you that are fans of the NBC network, they will be bringing us a new show called “The Event”.

Hello True Blood fans! Comic-Con 2010 has been busy with all kinds of announcements. This particular announcement came on Friday the 23rd.

According to the HBO store, the story for True Blood #1 is outlined like this: “when Sookie and her friends are trapped by a vengeful spirit who feeds on shame.

If you’re a hard-core fan, you may be interested in collecting all four covers. If you still wish to know more, here’s CNN talking with Alan Ball to discuss more about True Blood #1. Enjoy!
Personally, I don’t watch the series True Blood but I am looking forward to checking out the comic series. That’s only my thoughts. But to you hard-core True Blood fans, I want to know what your take is on this comic series? Do you think it’ll be just as good as the television series on HBO? Are you interested in picking up a copy? Please comment and let me know. Thanks
Long before there was Twilight or The Vampire Dairies with their handsome young vampire guys, there was the sexy blond Spike from Buffy the Vampire Slayer played by the talented James Marsters.
James Marsters has moved on from vampires to spaceships and out of this world political drama in the new Syfy series, Caprica where he plays Barnabas Greeley. At this past weekend’s San Diego Comic Con, Marsters talked to members of the press about his role in Caprica.
EM will have more coverage of Caprica in the days to come.
Reports are sketchy but during Hollywood day in Hall H at Comic Con yesterday, two people got into a fight over a seat at the show. Someone pulled a knife and stabbed someone. According to the police the injuries were non-life threatening.”The Hall was shut down for a couple of hours while the police came in to investigate. Robert Downey, Jr. made a joke about the incident during the big Avengers Assembled photo opp later in the day. Hey, I understand it’s tough to get in, but people need to learn to chill and people wonder why I no longer go to these big events myself. I was going to joke and tell one of the EM Writers to find the dark side of Comic Con, but guess you don’t have to look too far these days.
Eclipse Magazine’s coverage of Comic Con 2010 continues as we sat in on the The Syfy channel’s double billed press roundtable of Eureka and Warehouse 13.
We’ll have lots of goodies to share with Eclipse Magazine readers from this very informative combo, but right now we leave you with a video treat: Colin Ferguson talking about working on season 4 of Eureka and the drawbacks to wearing period piece costumes.
If, like me, you were left wondering what happened after the series finale of TV’s Buffy, the Vampire Slayer, you were probably thrilled to discover the Dark Horse comic in which series creator Joss Whedon and his hand-picked gang of writers and artists explored those very events.
Now, Buffy, the Vampire Slayer: Season Eight is a motion comic – and the season premiere [as it were] is now available on iTunes. When the season has been translated completely to motion comics, all nineteen episodes will be collected on DVD and Blu-ray for release on January 4th, 2011. Details follow the jump [c’mon Joss, give a couple commentaries!].
Dollhouse – Joss Whedon’s boldest, if not most successful – experiment comes to home video on October 12th. Details from the press release follow the jump [personally, I can’t wait for the audio commentaries – but that’s just me…].
