The Most Dangerous Women at Comic-Con: More than Just Cookies
The doting girlfriend. The damsel in distress. The evil seductress. The tough girl who dies. Why are so many female characters such cookie-cutter archetypes? Why do so many fictional women lack the depth and variety of character of their male counterparts? How can fans and writers work together to create richer stories with more well-rounded characters, female and otherwise? Here to discuss the many archetypes of women in fiction are a group of women dangerous in their own rights: Tamara Brooks (Comic Book Resources, Seat 42F), Dr. Janina Scarlet (Superhero Therapy), Jennifer K. Stuller (Ink-Stained Amazons and Cinematic Warriors, GeekGirlCon), Jessica Tseang (Little Geek Girls, comic book historian), Tamara Robertson (MythBusters: The Search), and Alex Langley (The Geek Handbook, Kill the Freshman). Moderated by Katrina Hill (Action Movie Freak, 100 Greatest Graphic Novels).

10 Points to Slytherin: Why Good Fans Love Evil Characters
UPDATED: Tue, Jul 18, 11:04PM

This interactive panel will explore fan fascination with fictional antagonists with TV writer Jane Espenson (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Battlestar Galactica), New York Times bestselling author Rebecca Zanetti (Blood Brothers series, The Dark Protectors series), writer and producer Christine Boylan (Once Upon a Time, Castle), author Tomi Adeyemi (Children of Blood and Bone), comics writer Erica Schultz (Charmed, Swords of Sorrow), and writer and editor Kendall Ashley (Nerdist, Geek & Sundry).
