Autostraddle was at Comic Con in force this year—Heather, Valerie Anne and I all spent the last four days wandering around this wonderful fairyland.
And you know we spread out and saw all of it, because I didn’t see either one of them! It was my first ever Comic Con, New York or otherwise!
It's way better than I thought and geting a TON of buzz.
And EA has tweeted that next week gets "fairly gay", whatever that means. If you liked her seasons of LG you should check it out.
[laughs] Coming back to a job that I’m so proud of, excited about and that makes me laugh is one thousand times better.
This season I think everyone on all sides of the camera really hit their stride.
If you haven’t seen it, in brief the show is about the great-great-granddaughter of legendary deputy sheriff/gunslinger Wyatt Earp, who returns to her hometown of Purgatory and must kill “Revanants”–77 outlaws that Wyatt killed turned demons who rise from Hell to wreak havoc in Purgatory during the lifetimes of Wyatt’s heirs.
It should return in April, so you have just enough time to binge watch all thirteen episodes of season one and obsessively read through the massive amount of fandom material online before then.
It’s impossible to feel wildly passionate or even meh about all of it! The real crown jewel reason I went to NYCC was to bask in the glory that was the Steven Universe panel.
Wynonna, a modern anti-hero, comes with baggage: the town rebel with a penchant for sleeping with…um, well, most of the males in Purgatory, beset by lingering feelings of guilt and anger over her past.
If you squint, the show looks a lot like “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” with its witty dialogue, messianic feminist overtones (both Buffy and Wynonna are “chosen” by fate to wield their power), demon villains, and “Scooby gangs” (for example, Waverly shares a lot of Dawn’s enthusiasm and naivety, Dolls is like a Watcher, and Doc Holliday is broody like a vampire).
I think if youre going to rec it to friends who know about LG maybe dont say that if you love S3 & 4 youll love this show. And EA has tweeted that next week gets "fairly gay", whatever that means. If you liked her seasons of LG you should check it out.
EA whether it was her fault or not has ground to make up as far as rep is concerned. It's way better than I thought and geting a TON of buzz.
