For the first time foodies are getting their own panel at San Diego Comic-Con. A Feast For Your Eyes: Creativity In Comics and Cuisine will bring together 5 panelists to discuss the similarities in the creative processes of artists and chefs.
The panel's official description reads, "Cooking is creativity. Food is art. In so many ways, the connections between food and comics on a creative level are everywhere. A chef's knife is the equivalent of an artist's pencil or brush. Their kitchens are their canvases. Both chefs and artists are only limited by their own imaginations; they both use their tools to take what is in their minds and create masterpieces in different mediums. But the processes are the same, and that's what panelists will be exploring in this open discussion."

If you lost out on getting San Diego Comic-Con Badges when they first went on sale back in February, you have one more shot.
Four-day badges are still completely sold out, but a few thousand single-day badges are available now via a resale lottery.

HBO is gearing up for the season 3 premiere of Game of Thrones with a new interactive exhibition, opening today in midtown Manhattan.

George Lucas might have sold Lucasfilm to Disney, but that doesn't mean he's ready to ride off into the sunset.
The Star Wars Guru recently submitted a proposal to The Presidio Trust to build an art museum on a commissary site at Crissy Field in San Francisco.
Lucas is an avid art collector who currently owns more than 1,000 works of art, enough to rotate a gallery collection every six months for six years.
Marvel’s superheroes are about to descend on Hong Kong. Disney has just announced they will soon begin building the first ever Marvel “Themed Area” within their Hong Kong Disneyland Park.
The plan isn't a total surprise to comic fans. Disney has been open about the fact that they've planned to introduce more Marvel elements into their theme parks since they acquired the company in 2009. It also makes sense to launch the new enterprise in Hong Kong since it will be a big draw to tourists visiting from the mainland.
