San Diego Comic-Con is so vast and intense that one needs to make a very careful game plan: panels, programs, signings, and events are scheduled every instant, and there are tough choices to be made each step of the way if you're going to get to see half of what you'd like to.  And while there's lots of complaining every year about the lack of actual comic content in a convention named for comics, that's simply absurd; there's so much of EVERYTHING going on that you just need to make sure you're in the right room at the right time.  I spent most of the four days of Comic-Con attending comic-centric panels and learning more about the history of this artform.

her universe

By Karen Yossman

Actors in popular franchises rarely have the opportunity to give back to their fans beyond stopping for the occasional photograph or signing merchandise. Which is what makes Ashley Eckstein, who shot to fame voicing Ahsoka Tano in "Star Wars: The Clone Wars," unique. After noticing the lack of "Star Wars" apparel available for women, she founded Her Universe, a company dedicated to producing fashion for fangirls. During San Diego Comic-Con, I sat down with Ashley to find out how Her Universe started and where it’s going.
