Emerald City ComiCon Has Announced Programming!

Conventions

The wait is over! If you’re heading to ECCC they have finally announced programming. Here’s a few panels that caught my eye.

Friday March 1st:

FELICIA DAY – WARRIOR QUEEN GODDESS OF ALL NERDS

Room: MAIN HALL (6ABC)

Time: 3:00PM – 4:00PM

She’s been the love interest of a horrible doctor, leads one of the fiercest (and funniest) guilds in all the world (of Warcraft), and holds the honor of being called the “Warrior Queen Goddess of All Nerds” (Gawker) She’s Felicia Day! Join her for an hour as she talks about her career and let you know what the future holds for the woman Joss Whedon says will someday “rule Asia and invent a new color!” Moderated by Melanie McFarland (TV Editor, IMDB.Com)

STILL TRAVELING IN THE TARDIS: 50 YEARS OF DOCTOR WHO

Room: HALL A (611-614)

Time: 3:30PM – 4:25PM

“Doctor Who” is the world’s most successful science fiction television series. Debuting on the BBC in 1963, it ran for twenty-six years. In 2005, it was revived and became the worldwide phenomenon it is now, due in some small part to a new following in America.

Seattle is home to one of the few broadcasters of classic “Doctor Who” in the world. Find out more about this show, where it started, where it is now, and why it can run for at least another fifty years! Hosted by Eric Gjovaag, (The Emerald City Androgums) Ryan K. Johnson, (Founder, Society of the Rusting TARDIS) and Dan Murphy, (Emerald City Androgums).

I CAN BE A GEEK AND FEMININE

Room: 2AB

Do you love Star Wars AND the color pink? Spend equal amounts of time shopping for clothes AND comics? There’s no shame in being geeky and feminine! Join panelists Bonnie Burton (author of The Star Wars Craft Book), Kristina Horner (YouTube vlogger “italktosnakes”), Molly McIsaac (geek fashion blogger and cosplayer), and Tara Theoharis (geek lifestyle blogger at Geekyhostess.com) as they celebrate the people and things that make being geeky and feminine fantastic! Men and women are welcome to participate in this lively discussion on what it means to be a geeky woman in the 21st Century.

Writer/actor Wil Wheaton and comedy/music duo Paul and Storm share a morning of stories, music, and a really, really long song about pirates. Both individually and in collaboration, Wheaton and Paul and Storm will endeavor not just to entertain, but to solve the majority of the world’s problems over the span of 90 minutes.
