The BBC’s global broadcast of The Day of the Doctor 50th Anniversary special hit the U.S. West Coast around lunchtime so Pacific Northwest Whovians had plenty of time to get their best scarf, bow-tie, fez or stone makeup and journey to the pop culture showcase in Seattle. Continue reading →

What really goes at your comic book shop after you’ve got your weekly stash?
A brand new web series explores the adventures of comic shop regulars in a heightened, hilarious reality.
Mongrel Studios’ original new web series Infinite Issues follows comic shop clerk Becca Hererra (Rebecca Teran) and her misfit regulars, a band of oddballs strewn across the spectrum of geekery, as they awkwardly navigate relationships, sex and identity crises.
The three-episode pilot arc beginning November 18 chronicles the lead-up to an ill-fated booster draft that entangles the regulars in a bizarre affair doomed to end in catastrophe. Continue reading →
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire opens this week. Jennifer Lawrence reprises her role as Katniss Everdeen, who is forced to compete in deadly new games of former champions (including Josh Hutcherson back at Peeta.)
Before global success of The Hunger Games, before winning an Oscar for Best Actress for her role in Silver Linings Playbook, Lawrence and her leading men (Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth) came to Seattle on The Hunger Games Tour. I remember young fans erupting into a frenzy like tributes arriving in the Capitol.
I wanted to share part of that interview again. Most of the young fans were on Team Gale or Team Peeta. I asked Lawrence about the relationship between Katniss and Cinna, the stylist who becomes her mentor. While filming X-Men: First Class Lawrence (who played Raven/Mystique) became friends with co-star Zoe Kravitz (who played Angel) and developed a friendship with her dad, rock star Lenny Kravitz. She explained that helped their on-screen rapport:
Kravitz returns as Cinna to prepare Katniss and Peeta for the Hunger Games Quarter Quell as the new District 12 champions must fight for their lives again against former winners.
Friday Flashback is a cosplay showcase in honor of the Young Avengers series coming to an end.
Fan favorite gay teens in love Wiccan and Hulkling are split up and now the series is ending in January 2014.
I was so surprised two years ago at Fan Expo Vancouver by this Avenging duo. You can always see cosplayers dressed in honor of famous marquee superheroes but I love when you see some costumed fans and you have to think for a bit and then you get it…and they’re so happy you recognize them as the characters you love!
Here’s to the Wiccan and Hulkling fans out there. Here’s hoping we’ll have news on a new creative team for the Young Avcengers or a maybe a new role for the super teens in 2014.

The special Captain Marvel Carol Corps issue is out today. To celebrate the arrival of Captain Marvel #17 I wanted to share the final part of my one on one with writer Kelly Sue DeConnick at GeekGirlCon.
The Carol Corps would love to see Carol Danvers make the leap from comic books to television or a movie. Could we see Carol on an episode of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. or an Avengers sequel or possibly her own series or solo movie?
I asked DeConnick what’s the most important for filmmakers to get right about Carol in transitioning the fan-favorite Avenger from comic book to other mediums.
