Every con we go to, we like to make Star Wars connections. I usually am meticulous with my research for this kind of blog, but this week my real job is taking most of my time, so I’m kind of doing this one on the fly.
- Jessica Henwick: The star of Iron Fist was also Jess Testor in The Force Awakens
- James Robinson and Tony Harris: This comic team brought us the one off for C3PO. But don’t be fooled by the one-off. This is one of the best single issue comics in the new Marvel line of Star Wars comics. It brings up serious issues about artificial intelligence in a moving and thought-provoking way. It is simply fantastic.
- Ben Templesmith did work in the previous Marvel Star Wars runs.
- On Friday at 10 am, there will be a panel on the Storytelling of Story Wars in 370D.
- Later at 4 that same day, there will be a Star Wars improv show in room 362A. On Saturday, at 2:30 this will be repeated.
- At 4:30 on Friday in room 361C, a local theater troop will put on a reading of William Shakespeare’s Star Wars. At 4:30 on Saturday, the reading will do the second half of it.
- On Saturday at 1, there will be a Star Wars Enthusiasts of Huston Mega Cosplay Photo Shoot in Hall B3 if you want to see some great Star Wars costumes.
- Saturday evening at 9 pm, there will be a discussion as to what is better Star Wars or Star Trek. Personally, that’s comparing apples and oranges to me, but I love both equally!
May the force be with you!
