I went to Supanova today. It was a lot better organised this year and the crowding around the main entrance was vastly reduced which made for a much more pleasant experience.

I got autographs from Nathan Fillion and Adam Baldwin - both in my copy of Serenity: Those Left Behind HC, which already has signatures from Summer Glau, Sean Maher, Jewel Staite and Alan Tudyk. Nathan joked that it would be worth a lot of money after he died and when I told him about the other signatures (and the fact that that I intended to get the last three as well), he said it would be worth a really big lot of money. Considering that he had been signing for about 2 hours without a break by this time, it was impressive that he could still make any kind of joke. Adam Baldwin seemed impressed that I had come from 100km away on the train - quite routine for me but he seemed to think it was cool.

It was a long time in the queues - even though Nathan's moved quickly, there were a hell of a lot of people in front of me. Adam's moved more slowly because he was taking some time to talk to each person and personalise their autographs but it was a little shorter so it didn't take as long.

Cosmic Comics had a stand so I went over to have a look and got The Walking Dead Book 11 HC - I thought I usually got these in September each year (and usually from Cosmic Comics as it is my "local store" - it's about 35 kms away) but obviously this one came out way earlier.

Overall, a much more pleasant experience than last year - my only disappointment was that Morena Baccarain had to cancel. If she had come, that would have left only 2 signatures to get but as it is, I still have three to go. Here's to next year!

Firefly meets The Avengers )

Just noticed the Firefly A Celebration Anniversary Ed . Looks lovely but I'm not sure that I'd buy it, given that I've already got all three books that make up its contnets.

'The Big Bang Theory' reimagined as 'Firefly' crew - I think the casting is about right although Penny and Amy might be better swapped over?

I like it

I knew they made the occasional Firefly reference but this is just cool - and again, I ask how I missed this at the time?

Awesomeness )

Just saw Firefly Les Femmes Saffron Poster - impressive work, I have to say!

I will always watch Serenity when it is on TV. It's on even as I type - Mal just shot the Operative on Mr Universe's backup rig.

As always, Supanova was heaps of fun

and here's why. )

Joss Whedon: Conversations - I think I might have a look for this one.

No matter how many times I see it, I still love Serenity - so much so, in fact that I'm watching it on Eleven even as I type this - and recording it too!

Even I wonder about me sometimes .....

Coolest thing ever - you be the judge!
She Don't Like Firefly. )

Just looked on the Supanova Perth guest list - James Marsters, Morena Baccarin and Sean Maher!


If I can get signatures from Morena Baccarin and Sean Maher, that means that my Serenity Those Left Behind HC will only need 5 more signatures for a full set! I can dream on, I know!

I wonder if I should get James Marsters to sign my Spike: After the Fall HC?

The second half of this story is now up at USAToday - "It's easy for you too". Hmmmm .....

The first 5 pages of this story are at USAToday - "That image ain't gonna shake easy" is a classic line!

Sexual Rhetoric in the Works of Joss Whedon - due out on 26th January 2011. Not sure how I didn't see the original announcement for it but it certainly sounds interesting from the blurb:
Topics covered include the role of virginity, lesbianism and homoeroticism in the shows and the comics, the nature of masculinity and femininity and gender stereotypes, an exploration of sexual binaries, and a ranking of the Buffy characters on the Kinsey scale of sexuality.

There are eight preview pages for this issue at Wired

and they are here too. )
