Comic Con Post #2 - Notable Panels

Because one post is not enough to capture the awesomeness of Comic Con 2013, I'm back with more pics and fun. I have a running tradition I hope always continues at Comic Con - that tradition is George R R Martin. I am a huge Game of Thrones fan and freaked out online with everyone else the night of the Red Wedding. *whispers* I watch the show and sadly have not read the books.

Game of Thrones was one of my MUST-SEE panels this year. My camera and phone camera made everything look further away, so I took pics of the screens too that I'm sharing here. In other words, Things Appear Further Away Than They Were.

I swooned over Robb Stark (Richard Madden) - he was charming and funny on stage, smiley and adorbs... and from what I saw in person too.

Jon Snow aka Kit Harrington was also fun to watch. I loved his chemistry with Rose Leslie who plays Ygritte at the panel. I might have freaked out when I saw him in person, but I kept my excitement contained.

IMG_1929Let's not forget the beautiful Emilia Clarke. She's stunning with her brown hair and when Jason Momoa ran out on stage and kissed her.... *flatline* I miss Drogo and Khaleesi.

And wouldn't these two beautiful people make a great onscreen couple? Just sayin' - I think they need to do something together.

My Game of Thrones story- My friends and I saw GRRM eating at the same restaurant as us at breakfast. I decided I was going to send this note over via the waiter, but chickened out. When I met GRRM that night, I handed it to him:

I was at Comic Con for several panels including The Worlds End:

Hunger Games was my other MUST-SEE panel: It did not disappoint. The actors were in great moods, Jennifer was funny, Josh charming, and Liam gorgeous. The trailer was great. I was so excited to see it.

A HUGE bonus panel that was really great to be in the audience for was the Divergent panel: After seeing this panel and the trailer for the movie, I really need to read these books.

Other notable panels I saw were:

The Visionary Panel with Directors: Edgar Wright, Marc Webb, and Alfonso Cuaron.

Ender's Game because I got to see Harrison Ford

Gravity panel with Sandra Bullock and Alfonso Cuaron

Veronica Mars panel had an amazing energy and excitement in the audience.

I don't even watch The Walking Dead because it seems way too scary for me, but I really dug the panel and preview trailer. Maybe I can watch between my fingers. I'm intrigued.

And the KickAss 2 panel was totally KickAss!

Next time I'll post about parties, signings, and sightings.
