Comic-Con@Home 2020: Day 2 schedule and events revealed

A full day of virtual events!

Today, San Diego Comic-Con released a schedule and descriptions for the panels on the second day (and first full day) of their Comic-Con@Home event on Thursday, July 23.

Just like the events announced yesterday, the times are Pacific (PDT), meaning American east coast folks like me will need to do some math and add three hours. The YouTube and ‘Watch When Available’ links are not live yet, but will be once we get within a few hours of the event.

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly comics podcast!

Hollyweird Science: Creativity, Correctness, and Collaboration

Watch When Available!

YouTube: https://youtu.be/DpVK5T0G5hI

In addition to a constructive examination of the depiction of science and scientists in TV and film, the Hollyweird Science books explore how onscreen depictions compare to real life: when it’s right, when it’s wrong, and when it’s wrong for the right reasons. The books have also noted parallels in the careers of both working scientists and Hollywood storytellers: in both instances, few who begin the journey find successful careers, and both are very demanding and highly competitive. The common wisdom might be that the comparison ends there–that storytelling is highly creative, or “right-brained”, while the life of the scientist is dominated by “left-brained” analytical thinking and reasoning. Our panelists of scientists and Hollywood creatives explore the thought processes, motivations, and inspirations that drive their own careers, and explore the idea that these careers that seem diametrically opposed superficially have much more in common than you might think, and that creativity and analytical thought are complementary, not end members of a spectrum. Featuring Ashley E. Miller (Lore, Black Sails), Nicole Perlman (Guardians of the Galaxy, Captain Marvel), Deric A. Hughes (Warehouse 13, The Flash), Helen Stringer (Spellbinder, Paradigm), Stephen Cass (senior editor, IEEE Spectrum), Jessica Cail, Ph.D. (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Zootopia), and Kevin Grazier, Ph.D. (Gravity, Escape Room 2).

Growing up, many of us had to contend with the Smurfette principle: stories where there was only one girl in the whole gang–the token, the love interest, and the character who had to stand in for all girls everywhere. But times have changed, and many creators are writing their dream girl gangs, squads, and inclusive ensembles. So how do you build your modern squad from the ground up? How do you decide what kinds of characters will best complement, conflict, and have chemistry with each other? And why is writing and/or drawing a girl gang just so gosh darn fun? Join creators Cecil Castellucci (The Plain Janes), Sarah Kuhn (Heroine Complex), Sam Maggs (The Unstoppable Wasp: Built on Hope), Afua Richardson (Black Panther: World of Wakanda), Steenz (Heart of the City), and Rebekah Weatherspoon (A Cowboy to Remember) as they discuss the challenges and joys of squad goals and building the modern girl gang.

This dynamic panel will explore the connections between Afrofuturism and Black Religion and the way in which comics, graphic novels, and animation are capturing the rich dynamic that spawns new ways in which popular culture is being impacted by these forces.

Join executive producer Eric Kripke, along with series stars Karl Urban, Jack Quaid, Antony Starr, Erin Moriarty, Jessie T. Usher, Laz Alonso, Chace Crawford, Tomer Capon, Karen Fukuhara, and Aya Cash, with moderator Aisha Tyler, for a behind-the-scenes look at the upcoming second season of The Boys. Executive producers Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg will also make a special appearance. Based on The New York Times best-selling comic by Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson, The Boys is a fun and irreverent take on what happens when superheroes – who are as popular as celebrities – abuse their superpowers rather than use them for good. The even more intense, more insane season two finds The Boys on the run from the law, hunted by the Supes, and desperately trying to regroup and fight back against Vought.
