Felicia Day has done such an amazing job with The Guild and it’s characters that from the very first page they are captured with such precision, such that if there were no accompanying art you would know exactly which character was saying what. As each of the characters speaks you hear the actors saying the lines. This one-shot focuses on everyone’s favorite self-absorbed, oblivious but likable Clara.
We begin this issue with Clara having made false promises to her understanding and patient husband, George. Without giving too much away George takes away the computer until Clara does what she promised. We see Clara at her finest, shes a bad parent, shes narcissistic and shes selfish, yet somehow shes charming and you love her! We get to see flashbacks of Clara from baby to high school which are all over the top scenarios and are hilarious. As the flashbacks are unfolding she is also doling out motherly advice in a way that only Clara can. Her husband appears in the flashbacks and his story is unexpected and entertaining.
This comic is DEFINITELY recommended, it was funny, charming and endearing just like Clara!
While the first part of the event name makes one think of scantily clad young women, the panel isn’t about that. Girls Gone Genre brings out women who are integral parts of the entertainment industry, focusing on questions for newcomers to the field and how it feels to swim with the sharks.
The Panel will take place in room 24ABC on Friday July 23rd from 5-6pm, the panelists include:
– Felicia Day – Writer/Producer “The Guild” (web series and comic), Actress “The Guild,” “Buffy The Vampire Slayer,” “Dollhouse,” “Dr. Horrible’s Sing Along Blog.”
