We met up with the always lovely Amber Benson (who played Tara on Buffy of course.) Look out for our mini-interview with her in a day or two where we discuss her new book, The Witches of Echo Park and Buffy.
Dark Horse's Booth is all decked out in the usual Whedon fare:
I actually saw Seth Green outside when I was getting off the bus. He swizzled into the celebrity side door at the Javits. The panel he did later that day was pretty cool, though. He's doing a Vimeo channel with his Stoopid Buddy Stoodios that will offer a two-hour animation class exclusively on Vimeo's pay-for-view on-demand channel on December 15.
Finally, some food fun! This year there are definitely a few cool extras at NYCC. For instance, Did you know that New York Comic Con has an official cookie? Einhorn’s Epic Cookies at booth #130! Einhorn’s Epic Cookies is an extra-cool cookie company -- each cookie comes with a free comic book, like the “Prize Inside” snacks of our youth but better (because it’s a comic, of course!)
And check out the Wikia Food Truck - line up early! It's so awesome, they did a tournament focusing on “Fantasy Foods” like Harry Potter’s Butterbeer, Fallout’s Nuka Cola, Glee’s Slushie and Doctor Who’s Fish Fingers & Custard. And you can sample some of the discussed treats for free at Wikia’s Fantasy Food Truck at the show from 2:00-3:00pm TODAY!
