Jessica Merizan stops by to talk about community management at BioWare, Crabcat Industries, Try This At Home on Nerdist, and… tomahawks?! We also discuss the latest from the Marvel movie circuit and the announcement that JJ Abrams is directing Star Wars VII. Finally, you talk community events with us in our NAQOTW. So throw your keys in the bowl, sit back, and relax.
We’ve been covering the creative folks at Crabcat Industries for ages now and are stoked to share with you the very first episode of their Nerdist series Try This at Home With Crabcat Industries. If you’re curious about Crabcat and what they do, you should check out Morgan Spurlock’s beautiful documentary Comic-Con Episode IV: a Fan’s Hope. Try this at Home aims to help viewers with a wide variety of projects from prop building to power suits. I can’t wait to see the freaking power suits!
Katrina Hill’s “The Most Dangerous Women at Comic-Con” panel was sort of like one of those awesome Marvel Team Up comics you probably read when you were a wee kid. If for some reason you were deprived of said comic, Marvel Team Up would take a few heroes from different books and send them on a mission they could only accomplish by working together. While no crime fighting actually occurred during the panel, it did manage to showcase some of the most creative, fun, and entertaining women in their respective industries.
So you’re thinking of going to San Diego Comic Con this year but have no idea what the heck is going on with ticketing and lodging? You’re not alone!

Last evening I made my way into the Unicorn theatre here at PAX (complete with Robot Unicorn attack music on.. loop) to relax a bit and check out Crabcat Industries costume non-contest.
