We featured The Sidekick as one of the five panels that should not be missed at this year’s Comic-Con, but were we right? The Sidekick follows super hero sidekick Max McCabe on a journey of self discovery after his disastrous final mission with Captain Wonder (played by a wonderfully dry Ron Livingston). Created as a way to cope with turning forty, actor-writer Rob Benedict successfully assembled a team of super-talented friends to help out with the film including Martin Starr, Lizzy Caplan, Richard Speight Jr., Jordan Peele, Jason Ritter, and Josh Meyers.
With Comic-Con 2012 lurking on the horizon, we’re still in the process of figuring out where we’re going to be and exactly what panels and events we’re going to cover. This year is going to be pure grade-A madness. It turns out Katrina “Action Chick” Hill, who is known for her kick-ass SDCC panels, will once again be bringing the fire to this year’s SDCC. Katrina’s panel this year will feature tons of creative ladies from the industry, including some of the fine folks we’ve featured here at NA: Abbie Heppe, Milynn Sarley, and Holly Conrad. Heck, it was an inspirational pep-talk from Abbie that pushed us to start this very site… true story. Nerd Appropriate will be there for sure! Will you?
