During the packed panel at San Diego Comic-Con, the Saga writer noted that while today, Joss Whedon and George R.R. Martin are considered cultural monsters for killing off beloved characters, death used to be a more common feature of popular fiction. One problem, he believes, is that too many characters live in the hands of corporations and are therefore considered too precious to kill. Vaughn feels that takes away one of the things that makes fiction so valuable.

This is Lucy-Bear! She was found alone near a trading post on the Navajo Reservation by one of our neighbors and they brought her home once they learned she didn’t have an owner (they’ve rescued tons of cats and dogs).  She was scampering near our house and we instantly fell in love.  Lucy was a bit of a terror as a puppy (she ate through a wall), but she has turned into the most loyal, loving, fantastic companion.  I seriously could not have asked for a better dog!

I fold some jeans and put them into my suitcase and think to myself, “this is weird. I don’t feel panicky about Comic-Con at all.”
