Posted By on Tue, Jul 21, 2009 at 3:35 PM

San Diego's Comic-Con has easily become the pop culture lodestar of this generation and 2009's panel line up will not disappoint the nerd pilgrims who've made the long journey to Southern California's geek mecca.

Below you'll find our list of 10 panels that should not be missed by any self-respecting  Comic-Con attendee. And no, Jerky McJerkpants, "self respecting Comic Con attendee" is not an oxymoron.

1. Meet the Cast of the Guild
Basically- just what the title says. Be sure to ask Guild creator Felicia Day to brush or stroke your hair. Trust us, this will go over well. 

2. Stargate Universe
Once you're done being groomed by Felicia Day, allow yourself to be escorted by security to the Stargate Universe panel going on across the hall. Another Stargate spin off, you say? SyFy, have you been reading our diary?

3. Geoff Johns!
The writer behind Flash: Rebirth and DC comics' most anticipated book of the year Green Lantern: Blackest Night. (Also, for the geeky gals out there, Geoff is REALLY HOT.)

4. Brian Herbert!
The son of science fiction God Frank Herbert (Dune), Brian Herbert, while not wholly embraced by the Dune fanbase, is still amazing because he basically IS Paul Atreides.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
