Did you guys hear that there’s a little thing called Comic-Con happening this weekend?
No? Don’t care? Well, then…carry on.
If you’ve chosen to keep reading, let me take this moment to once again lament my not being able to attend this year. I will make an appearance in the near future. I will dress myself, and my girls, in adorably geeky costumes. (They began practicing long ago!)
As per my usual fashion, I have been closely following my favorite sites for Comic-Con coverage…and while this year’s convention seems unsurprisingly kickass, the most anticipated panels do not seem to have revealed much. (See: How ‘Star Wars’ won Comic-Con 2015 — while revealing nearly nothing) However, I did read about one little proceeding which I believed warranted a mention on this blog…
Yesterday, when a fan asked Joss Whedon — probably my favorite writer/producer/director — who his favorite character creation is, he replied, “My answer would change daily. It could never stop changing.”
But if he had to make a choice?
“How can I not say Buffy? She is the very distilled essence of everything I’m not, and want desperately to be or be around.”
Then he took it a step further by adding that Buffy is “sort of the nexus, the beating heart, of everything that I have done — or will. She gets the nod.”
Oh, the feels!
I ♥ you, Buffy! And I ♥ you too, Joss!
And if you’ve never watched Buffy, take a look at this 5-min video to see why you totally should:
