Emily S. Whitten: Making Lunch Breaks Everywhere More Fun Since…Now?

Emily S. Whitten

Emily S. Whitten writes everything from news, reviews, and interviews to how-tos, con round-ups, and opinion pieces for ComicMix and others; as well as comics featured on ComicMix, MTV.com, and Reelz.com; and occasionally even award-winning poetry and fiction. When she's not writing for fun or profit, she’s sharing geeky thoughts on the Fantastic Forum radio show and podcast Made of Fail. Emily is a convention organizer and consultant, and co-chair of the fourth North American Discworld Convention, which she co-founded. She has been Program Coordinator for Awesome Con and staff for several genre cons. Emily is a program moderator for Awesome Con and Fan2Sea; and you might also recognize her from her days of answering questions online as her alter-ego, Ask Deadpool. In her copious spare time, Emily enjoys crafting and cosplay, and looking after the cutest three-legged dwarf hamster in the world, ElliePuff. Oh, and when she's not doing all that, Emily is an active member of The National Press Club and holds down a 9-to-5 as a senior attorney for the federal government - although that may just be her superheroine cover identity.

    You should really check out Darths & Droids (www.darthsanddroids.net) – an Aussie version of the basic concept behind DM of the Rings, except in this case it’s in a world where the Star Wars movies never existed, and they’re playing this sci-fi game… Notable chiefly (in my opinion, anyway) for getting a better, more nuanced performance out of screen shots of Hayden Christensen than Lucas got from the actual actor, and for being the only place in all the multiverses where you will hear someone non-ironically declare, “Jar-Jar, you’re a genius!”

      *much delayed reply*

      Ooh, I used to love Wapsi Square. Then, if I recall correctly, it went on some sort of hiatus? I think? Has it come back again? Anyway, yes, that’s a great comic!

      Thanks for the other recommendations; I haven’t looked at those before. Will do!
