Look at this panel that's happening on Saturday at Seattle's Emerald City Comicon!

12:00pm THE GUILD
This award-winning independent sitcom web series about a group of online gamers has grown into a phenomenon. Join creator/writer/star Felicia Day (Codex), Amy Okuda (Tinkerballa) and Wil Wheaton (Fawkes) as they discuss the current season and much more! Moderated by Erik Henriksen.

Hey, that's me! Pressure aside—I think there are gonna be like a billion hardcore Guild fans in the audience?—I'm looking forward to talking with those guys, as I'm a fan of The Guild, and the Guild comics that Day's been writing for Dark Horse are nothing short of excellent. (Preview the first issue here.) So it should be a fun discussion about the web series and the comics, not to mention a fascinating real-time experiment to see if I'll fuck it all up. (Maybe I'll accidentally call Wheaton "Wesley"? Maybe I'll loudly demand to know where my teleprompter is, only to realize, with a look of terrified panic, that there is no teleprompter? Maybe I'll pull a Chris Farley Show? Who knows? Wheeee!) If you're planning on going to Emerald City, swing by; if you're not, well, make some plans to go to Emerald City, and then swing by. I'll even let you buy me a beer after the panel!

Also, got any Guild-related questions for Day, Okuda, and/or Wheaton? Well, that works out great for me! Put your questions in the comments; if they're good, I'll happily steal them in order to make myself look smarter ask them for you.

Stay tuned to the Mercury and Blogtown for more stuff on Emerald City in the next week, too—we'll have a preview of the show in this week's paper, as well as a blog post or two this weekend, written at the show itself.
