There are planets so far away from ours that no scientist will ever guess that they exist, let alone know the stories of their civilizations, their beginnings and ends. They’re not being kept secret from us, but they’re secret all the same.

This is glorious. The Drunk History principle of humor works for pretty much any shaggy-dog story, I think.
So I spent last weekend running all over the Javits Center like a madwoman to put this together, and had a blast. Read on for the Dread Pirate Roberts! The Walking Dead! Broad City! Badass Marvel Comics ladies! A guy whose face is puppies!
Well, I got to see the Dread Pirate Roberts and the Karate Kid (and his nemesis) this weekend, plus the Broad City ladies, and also women-in-comics groundbreakers Kelly Sue DeConnick and G. Willow Wilson. Also, that one woman from Star Trek who is a pistol, the hot dude who’s playing Constantine, and a parade of shrieking Deadpools. Also, I am bloody exhausted. But hey—not bad, Comic Con.
Ugh, damnit. Now I really like Gilmore Girls. Lorelai is like an alternate-history version of Nancy Botwin and it’s wonderful.
