Dragon Con 2014: An Hour with Sam Witwer

Greetings all! Bethany Blanton of the Star Wars Report here to give you more coverage of Dragon Con! What follows is a recap of the Sam Witwer panel at Dragon Con this year, but first I’ll quickly tell you how my brother and I met Sam.

Riley and I first met Sam Witwer at Dragon Con a few years ago, where he was kind enough to take the time to do an interview with us. He’s an awesome Star Wars fan who is passionate about the franchise. One of Riley’s highlights of this year’s convention was when, while in conversation with him later, Sam mentioned listening to the Star Wars Report. Yes, Riley’s face at that moment did make me laugh. :)

This year saw me, Teresa, Riley, and Aaron all together again for Dragon Con! While the convention is over, we are still releasing coverage of it including photos, event coverage, and panel recaps like this one. Dragon Con has so much wonderful content from Marvel panels to parties, from Doctor Who to My Little Pony, and of course the Star Wars track, which had panels, parties, a costume contest, a trivia contest, and more. Riley and I attended the Sam Witwer panel on Sunday morning. Moderated by Bryan Young, this panel was more like a conversation with Sam, Bryan, and the audience than a panel. Sam was cool and entertaining as usual.

Purge (comic volume)
Agent of the Empire: Hard Targets (comic volume)

Bookworms is back with your hosts Teresa and Aaron. On this episode they bring in Mark Hurliman of the Star Wars Beyond the Films podcast to talk some comics.

Before they tackled the reviews though, they had some feedback from a listener to share. Listener shazbazzar sent in an email with his thoughts on Crucible, Mortis, the Expanded Universe, and Episode VII which led to some fun discussion on all topics.

Then our hosts jumped right into their review of the Purge comics, covering each of the 4 storylines individually. Aaron, Teresa, and Mark had varying opinions on which stories they enjoyed and which ones didn’t work for them.

And why doesn’t this guy have a mouth?
