Emerald City Comic Con is currently in full swing, with us entering Day Three of the geeky celebrations. While fellow fans can live stream our Live Stage and more of our selected panels, we created a little video where we chose some of favorite highlights plucked from Day One of SYFY WIRE's Live Stage.

First up is Rockstars artist Megan Hutchison who was the first to play the SYFY WIRE Fangrrls Infinity Wheel hosted by our managing editor Cher Martinetti. The best part of the game was when the Infinity Wheel landed on the "Frak, Marry, Kill," category where Hutchison had to choose between Edward Scissorhands, Jack Skellington and Beetlejuice.

Our second highlight of the day was definitely our interview with Marvel legend Chris Claremont, where the comic book writer discussed the decision to kill off Jean Grey at the end of the epic Dark Phoenix Saga (you can check it in full here). Then we had artists Jason Shawn Alexander and Jim mahfood joining forces for one incredible comic book art piece done live.

Another of our highlights from the Seattle convention’s first day was Samurai Jack voice actor Phil LaMarr revealing how he (ahem) belatedly found out he was coming back to voice the character for the long-awaited Season 5. Last, but not least, is our interview with the cast and creators of Netflix’s Voltron: Legendary Defender, where they had to answer some fan questions, including one about Black Paladin Lance.

As always, check out our video above for more.
