Just a quick post as I get ready to head off the Los Angeles to attend Comikaze this weekend. There are a couple of Bond related panels at the con that I wanted to share if you are going:
At 6 PM this evening in Room 408AB, there's the The Battle of the Bonds...James Bond.
Here's the description from the program:
Following the Success of Battle of the Robins and Battles of the Doctors, Battle of returns with the world's greatest secret agent. But which one is truly the greatest Bond ever? Participants include: Jessica Tseang, Vito Lappicola, Zack Beseda, Steven Jay Rubin - yay! the author of The James Bond Films: A Behind the Scenes History and The Complete James Bond Encyclopedia - Dr. Travis Langley, and George Almond (American illustrator of Ian Fleming art).
And, tomorrow at 12:30 PM in Room 306AB, there's 50 Years of James Bond - How Did He Become a Legend?
Program description: Although 50 years has passed, our favorite British secret service agent has still remained relevant in our times. Join us in a spirited panel discussion with scholars Ian Fleming society leaders, authors, and professors on their perception on why James Bond is just as popular today as he was over 50 years ago. Participants include: Jessica Tseang, George Almond, Steven Jay Rubin, and Dr. Travis Langley.
I'll be attending or both, so perhaps I'll see you there...
