I’m back PA nerds! It’s great to return to Philly Comic-Con for my third year in the row. I can’t believe how much bigger this show gets every year and this year won’t disappoint. I’m grateful to participate in hosting a few awesome panels- hopefully I’ll post some as podcasts. Here’s the line up!

DOCTOR WHO FAN PANEL (3:30p Rm 105)
Join us for a wibbly wobbly time as ‘Whovians’ gather to discuss the latest adventures with our favorite Time Lord and companion. What do you think of Peter Capaldi? What were your thoughts on Season 8? What might we expect from the next season? A panel of Philly Whovian experts (Deb Stanish, Ken Deep, Erik Stadnik) will explore the significance of the past 5 decades, thoughts on the 12th Doctor, and how Whovians can get more Doctor Who during the hiatus.
STAR WARS FAN PANEL: FANDOM STRIKES BACK (4:30p Rm 111)
No story has captured more of our imagination for the past 4 decades than Star Wars. As a result, our fandom is like an energy field; it surrounds us, penetrates us, and binds our galaxy together. Now that we are on the eve of a Episode VII The Force Awakens, it’s time for fans to gather to discuss the potential of the continuing stories of Star Wars. Join our panel of Philly geek experts (Christopher Mannix, Ben Beck, Craig Liggeons) as we discuss the past 4 decades of Star Wars, the cultural impact, and speculate on the future… which still happened a long time ago.
GEEK WARS EPISODE VIII: THE NERDS AWAKEN (1:00p Rm 107)
Philly Geek experts compete in an epic game of nerd trivia while debating the latest culture topics like race-bending, objectification, film casting, cosplay is not consent, and more. This hilarious, energetic, and outrageous panel will not only be entertaining but might challenge your view of the pop culture world. Joining us will be Christopher Mannix, Ben Beck, Craig Liggeons, Sarah Harley, EJ O’Neil, and Cait Pringle.
