Cherry (or strawberry to make Kaylee happy) on the cake, graphic artist Mute-Art created a shiny custom poster especially for the 10th anniversary screening.
Check out the absolute beaut of a poster featuring prominently Summer Glau as River Tam, Nathan Fillion as Captain Mal, Chiwetel Ejiofor as The Operative and Jewel Staite as Kaylee below.

Check out this lovely candid picture of Summer posted on Instagram by live action Captain Jack and Johnny Depp celebrity impersonator @captainjacklive (not in costume unfortunately). It was taken back in 2013 at a Blockbuster video.

[...]this was about 2 years ago. I was at the last Blockbuster video and she was in there with her boyfriend renting movies. We started talking and I got the photo... with River. :)

Graphic designer Alex (@nevermind_419) had a great time at MegaCon 2015 meeting the Firefly alumni Adam Baldwin, Alan Tudyk and Summer Glau. She was kind enough to send us her high quality photos of the Big Damn Heroes at the Firefly panel Q&A panel and of Summer signing autographs at her booth. It seems Summer, Alan and Adam had a great time and Alex really captured the highlights of the panel.
Check out below a sample of the awesome 104 UHQ pictures and follow the link to the gallery to see the rest.

Summer was very sweet and nice, but a little bit shy. Alan Tudyk did most of the talking. It was an amazing feeling to meet some of the Firefly cast :)

Again, a huge thank you to Alex for the pictures. 

UPDATE: YouTube user cowgrl1447 has posted a couple videos from the panel itself. We put them in a playlist so you can enjoy this hilarious panel.

 







Come on in for the pictures of Summer's last day at this year’s MegaCon, Florida (see images from Summer's first day in Orlando), as they are starting to pop up online. Summer and her Firefly co-stars Alan Tudyk and Adam Baldwin started the day with a Q&A panel scheduled at 11am. Hopefully, we will be able to post a few impressions and the video of the panel soon.
Anyway, here are a few pictures of Summer's second day at the convention and follow the link to the gallery for more. We’ll be updating this news with the latest MegaCon photos as we have them so make sure to check back for more!

Here are a few impressions from the Firefly panel.

From @melissagibbo
Things tou are surprised became a cult thing from the show. "Everyone wearing a Jayne hat stand up". Lot of orange and yellow in the room
"On Terminator I loved smashing things" #SummerGlau great bit of the answer. Wishing I had audio equipment to record this #panel #firefly

We hope everyone is having a great time at the convention and meeting Summer in person. We would love to hear some of your stories, so don’t hesitate to post them in the comments below or send them over by mail. 

More information on Summer Glau's appearance at the convention, as well as photos and reports from fans will be posted in the MegaCon 2015 forum thread (check it regularly).







Summer looks beautiful and radiant of happiness at this year's MegaCon as she makes her first public appearance since she and her husband Val welcomed a baby girl named Milena in January 2015. The first images of Summer and Val - who assists her at her booth as usual - from their trip to Florida are starting to arrive and fans who came to Orlando to see Summer might very well have the chance to meet the new member of the family, the little angel itself, who is in Florida with her parents. Summer also posed for a Firefly group photo with her co-stars Adam Baldwin and Alan Tudyk.
We will be updating this news with the latest MegaCon photos as we have them so make sure to check back regularly for more! Check out some photos below and follow the link to the gallery for more.

Here are a few impressions from fans who have met Summer.

From Savannah Hughes:
Can someone please tell me why Summer Glau is so much more popular than Adam Baldwin? I love them both…

From @miniswcallies:
When I told summer let's take a selfie she was like "okay cool but how do people even do this". SHES SO CUTE
I waited over 4 hours to meet summer and I told her she was so worth the wait she is so sincere and sweet omg

Don't forget that a Firefly panel with Summer Glau, Alan Tudyk and Adam Baldwin is scheduled tomorrow from 11AM to 12PM in room Valencia A-C.

We hope everyone is having a wonderful time at the convention and meeting Summer in person. We would love to hear some of your stories, so don’t hesitate to post them in the comments below or send them over by mail.

I’m gonna let you in on a secret … Summer Glau had a baby. Listen … No, Listen, I know, right? Isn’t she still seventeen? And machines don’t have babies! But it’s true.

So as the Glau changes diapers, stays up long into the night, and generally wishes death upon the man who forced life to grow inside her, all the while secretly loving every minute of it. On our side of things there are problems that one really thinks of. When you have a fan site dedicated to one actress, and that actress is on maternity leave for however long she wishes, what exactly is the editor to do?

Well don’t worry guys, because your buddy chrisdvanne came to the least qualified person on the internet to entertain you with his one man show of encyclopedic knowledge of “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles”, “Game of Thrones”, Lucas Film,  DC Universe, and a thousand other things that nobody in the real world cares about.  If I were brash, I’d say that at Comic-Con, I could get laid. But come on, I’m a TSCC fan; we’re the most hated fans in Sci-Fi. My own mother is ashamed of me. She tells everyone I volunteer at Slayerfest.

So for the next several months, I, your unhumbled mercenary will attempt to make you think, make you swoon, make you nostalgic, and if we’re still being honest, will probably make you mad. It’s a trial run for you, the people, in your Glauless lives.

So to quote Eddie Wilson from “Eddie and the Cruisers”

“Let’s get on with the music.”

The Lost Art of Writing Science Fiction Women

From Prince Leia to Cameron: The Lost Art of Writing Science Fiction Women

In their latest attempt to corner the growing superhero market and whet the appetites of fanboys and fangirls everywhere, Marvel Studios released the eight episode miniseries “Agent Carter” on ABC in January 2015. It came with much fanfare and strong opening reviews. It was a sprawling period piece with stellar actors, flawless direction, and expert set design (special mention to the costume design work by Giovanna Ottore-Melton). It was truly a unique experience … visually. Where Agent Carter fell was in the viewership. From week to week ratings continued to fall as the show continued on.

Now being a TSCC fan, I’ve heard the stories before. “The Networks aren’t looking at online numbers.” Or “The Networks are stuck in the ancient days of Nielsen.” They are complaints long echoed in the nightmare of any fan of a show on the bubble. There were even a few editorials online that accused a vast sexist agenda of people not being attracted to a female protagonist. There were many excuses and theories thrown around how this female led show was doing so poorly in the ratings. No one ever stopped to ask the simplest, most fundamental question in Television.

How’s the writing?

Hayley Atwell in Marvel's Agent Carter

To describe the Agent Carter experience is to simply equate it to Cereal. Imagine, if you will, you buy a delicious cereal for breakfast. You lay in bed all night thinking about it, how you can’t wait to have a bowl. Tomorrow comes, so you open the box, you pour a good helping … and everything taste’s sour to the point of near spit take. That’s because you’ve been so focused on the cereal you forgot that your milk was expired.  

Agent Carter and the Marvel Studio reputation was that box of cereal. The hope for a female led superhero based show. The poor writing of the character and the settings was all spoiled milk. For any television show to be successful you must have character and Peggy Carter was, sadly, a two-dimensional female protagonist. Yes, she kicked butt, brooded over Steve Rogers, and took the barbs of her male coworkers with grace. But that was all she did. The simple fact was that Peggy Carter was a Mary-Sue character without flaws or a backstory, meant to be an empowering figure for girls everywhere. But the problem remained that to have a good bowl of cereal, it’s not just the Cornpops … it’s the Cornpops and the milk.
