Over the years, the San Diego Comic-Con has become one of the key destinations for fans of certain movies and tv shows to gather and learn more about the various types of media, with individuals often getting sneak peeks at forthcoming projects and being able to interact with stars and creators. One of the highlights of the San Diego Comic-Con has been the ‘Women who kick ass’ panel, which allows a group of women from both movies and television to share their experiences in the industry and offer tips from a female perspective on how to improve things, and what aspiring filmmakers and content creators can do. The 2014 incarnation of the panel featured Katey Sagal, Sarah Paulson, Tatiana Maslany, Nicole Beharie, Maisie Williams, and Natalie Dormer, and it can now be seen below.

Comic-Con was plagued by a strange set of voodoo dolls, which popped up around the main convention center by 'A.' The string dolls were found in random hotel bedroms and lobbies filled with Comic-Con attendees. They were also spotted near The Walking Dead booth on the convention floor and hanging from the popular pedestrian bridge, and sidewalks down Fifth Street, leading to Comic-Con.
Mystery Voodoo Dolls Found At Comic-Con
The dolls came with a small thumb drive and had “Malum Est” written on their bodies. When connected, the drive directs the lucky recipient to a choppy video, where the same “Malum Est” phrase is clearly seen. It is unclear where, exactly, these dolls were found. Journalist Emma Loggins posted a photo of a voodoo doll she found at the convention, writing, “Found a creepy #voodoo doll today at #sdcc.”
The video does not, however, say what exactly it is promoting. »

San Diego - What does it mean to be a lady who kicks ass at Comic-Con?

Sarah Paulson of "American Horror Story," Nicole Beharie of "Sleepy Hollow," Maisie Williams and Natalie Dormer of "Game of Thrones," Katey Sagal of "Sons of Anarchy" and Tatiana Maslany of "Orphan Black" took on questions from fans and the moderator during the now-annual Women Who Kick Ass discussion at Sdcc. They talked on topics from makeup and beauty standards to stunt coordination advice to what pisses them off. Below are some of the highlights from the varied panelists. Will the plutonic relationship between Nicole Beharie's "Sleepy Hollow" character Abbie and co-lead Ichabod Crane "stick," try not to take it down the romantic path as shows tend to do?
