Tim Minear is coming to @WhedonCon 2017!

WhedonCon is proud to announce that the incomparable Tim Minear will be appearing at our 2017 convention alongside fellow Mutant Enemy scribe David Fury.

Possessing a true talent for words, Tim Minear won the hearts of fans by penning some of the Whedonverse’s most memorable lines, such as Firefly‘s most famous advice that“When you can’t run, you crawl, and when you can’t crawl – when you can’t do that . . . You find someone to carry you.” Though fourteen years have passed, these words still resonate with and beyond the Browncoat community, appearing frequently as the subject of memes, tattoos, and artwork.

Fresh from the Belly of the Sunnydale Mayor, Armin Shimerman Coming to WhedonCon 2017

Read Full Article at WhedonCon.com – Armin Shimermin

 This Spring, Armin Shimerman  will be spellbinding fans with tales of his adventures on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Star Trek: Deep Space 9, and a long list of other amazing projects.

Famous for portraying Sunnydale High’s weaselly Principal Snyder on Buffy, Shimerman is also known for a variety of theatrical, television, and film roles. To Buffy fans he is best known for making the Scoobie Gang’s life rough, having “Walk Like An Egyptian” stuck in his head (name that episode!) and for being eaten according to Sunnydale principal tradition (and yes–there’s a story behind that too).

Speaking to WhedonCon, Armin took the opportunity “to thank Joss for some of the best lines [I’ve] ever had” and most importantly for “not killing [me] off as early as he promised.”

Get Involved with Juliet Landau’s Vampire Documentary

Juliet-Landau-APATU-w-Joss

It’s been talked about for months, and now it begins.

Juliet Landau has officially started the Indiegogo campaign for her documentary A Place Among The Undead this morning. The documentary takes a look at vampires in popular culture, from Dracula to Buffy the Vampire Slayer and beyond.  A Place Among The Undead  is a “first of its kind” in many ways. It gathers the Who’s Who of the genre, never seen before together in one film. It provides a rare perspective…  an insiders’ view into the vampire phenomenon.

Juliet Landau and Gary Oldman 2015Juliet Landau and Anne RiceThe list of people interviewed is very impressive; from Gary Oldman (Dracula), Tim Burton (Dark Shadows, Ed Wood), Willem Dafoe (Shadow of the Vampire), Anne Rice (Interview With the Vampire) and Caroline Munro (Dracula 1972 AD) to David Greenwalt (Angel), Charlaine Harris (True Blood) and Joss Whedon.
