    I’ve been lucky enough to take part in many Game of Thrones panels at Dragon Con throughout the years – every year since 2012, in fact – but this year, the new High Fantasy track really went above and beyond with their Song of Ice and Fire/Game of Thrones offerings, including an awesome panel called […]


  • Ngozi Ukazu on Tumblr, Kickstarter, and Sports

    If you’ve been around a while, you guys know I’m a fan of Check, Please!, the webcomic about a gay southern baker who navigates life and love on his college hockey team.

    Dragon Con is one of my favorite times of the year, and this year one of the highlights was attending a press conference with Sean Gunn of Guardians of the Galaxy and Gilmore Girls fame.

    Michael Dante DiMartino is probably best known for being one half of the creative team that gave the world Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra – two series which have continued in comics and graphic novels. The first volume of The Legend of Korra: Turf Wars, released this month, with volume two set to hit stands in […]


  • Tomi Adeyemi on Epic Adventures and Representation

    If you’re not familiar with the name Tomi Adeyemi, you soon will be. Her debut novel, Children of Blood and Bone, hasn’t even hit shelves yet and has already been optioned for a movie, in a seven-figure deal that is almost unheard of for a new author, let alone one who is just 23. - **Read […]
