Comic-Con is always full of surprises and über geeky moments and I think Stephen Hawing introducing the Big Bang Theory panel is one of those moments. Not only does he do the theme song, which is awesome, but he does mention his book, A Brief History of Time, and an upcoming movie about his life titled Hawking which is set to be released on September 20th, 2013 in the UK.
Yes, it’s that wonderful time of year when the world gets a little geekier. It’s Comic-Con!
The international convention started in 1970 and it is now the most recognized convention of it’s type with over 100,000 joining the party. It’s an awesome celebration of what we love including not only comics but films, science fiction/fantasy literature and much more.
Special guests make appearances, often by surprise, including those behind the creation of our beloved comics. Actors/Directors will show up to discuss projects and roles in films as well as sharing interesting stories and in-depth discussions on lore. The action is already underway as things kick off with preview night.

I am a HUGE Legend of Zelda fan. When I saw this book was translated to English and released in the U.S, I had to have it immediately!
From beginning to end, this book is perfect. I love all the concept art, designs of every character you can imagine and seeing all the different versions and ideas the artists came up with.
Another thing that I found to be very interesting, was the chronology. Seeing the official timeline of all the stories, that is something Zelda fans have always wanted to know officially.
At the end of the book, there is a special manga comic based off Skyward Sword.
There are so many things I want to share, but I wouldn’t want to spoil it!
I highly recommend this book! If you would like to find out how to purchase your copy visit DarkHorse.com
