I was fortunate enough to snag a post-Comic Con interview with Katrina Hill, Action Chick. We talked about who she was, what she does, and her favorite parts of the San Diego Comic Con.
Katrina Hill, Action Chick
So, tell me a little about yourself. What is an action chick?
I would describe myself as someone obsessed with action. If a film has 98% action in it, that’s still not enough! I’m a geek and a gamer and an advocate for kick-ass females.
I am the creator and lead writer at http://www.actionchick.com, where I discuss all things action! I am currently working on a new webseries called “Geeks and Gamers Anonymous (GAGA)” at http://www.geekanon.com.
Where are you from?
The jungles of ‘Nam.
Have you been to the San Diego Comic Con before?
This was my fourth year at SDCC. I feel like a pro by now!
What do you love about SDCC?
Everything nerdy! I love catching first glimpses of action/superhero films. The panels in general are a big draw for me. Also, the floor is always amazing and gives me a nerdgasm every time I step foot on it. These past few years, another big draw to SDCC is meeting up with people I’ve become friends with over the internet.
What was your favorite part?
The floor was great, and I had a blast co-hosting my own party this year as well as organizing my own panel; however, my favorite part would have to be hanging out with my fellow nerdy twitter pals. It’s nice to hang out with people who have common interests and who will also understand and get excited when you say you met Stan Lee or Nathan Fillion. Believe it or not, there are people in the world who don’t know who these people are! Gasp!
Did you have a favorite panel?
I didn’t get to attend many panels this year – I was pressed for time, and the lines seemed even more epic than usual. I would arrive to a panel two hours early and still not be able to find the end of the line because it was sooo crowded. I went to my own Oh You Sexy Geek panel, of course, since I was the moderator :). I went to the Quick Draw panel with Sergio Aragones and then the Superhero Battlefield panel with Dr. Andrea Letamendi. That’s it! There were so many others I wanted to go to, but other obligations and lines kept getting in the way.
That’s all we had time for, but check out her website to learn more about this awesome girl gamer!
