Preview for the premiere issue of Archaia's 'Hacktivist' and my own story of not getting to meet Alyssa Milano at SDCC.
There was a tramatic event that happened to me at SDCC. To this day it's still hard to talk about, but I need to share it.
You see, my better half (Angela) and I usually tackle SDCC together. At SDCC '13 she had a chance to interview creators at Archaia about their upcoming title: Hacktivist, now about to hit shelves January 22nd. The thing about Hacktivist is that Alyssa Milano is the creator.
Now, I'm not normally a star struck type person, we run into people all the time at things like this and I'm like, 'hey, what's up,' and move on. But I grew up with Alyssa Milano, I may have even had a child-hood crush on Sam from Who's the Boss. Angela may be aware of this.
Did she shoot me a text to tell me to get over to the Archaia booth? No. Her reasoning is that Alyssa had just finished up a signing and was leaving shortly and as large as SDCC is, there is no way I could have gotten there in time. Had that text come through, we might have seen something not seen at comic-con at San Deigo in years, someone getting from one end of the convention to the other in a matter of seconds.
Then I probably would have met her, all sweaty and out of breath, and then shook her hand and said, 'hey, what's up?'
So, maybe not that traumatic. I'm glad I talked it out with all of you.
There was a point to this article though... AH! -- The first issue of Hacktivist hits shelves this Wednesday, January 22nd. Archaia has posted the preview, and if you want to find out more behind its creation, check out our interview from SDCC.
Hacktivist #1 will be available January 22, 2014.
Writers: Alyssa Milano, Jackson Lanzing, and Collin Kelly
