San Diego Comic-Con is flooded with costumes, but Felicia Day does not need a cape or cowl to show she’s superheroine in her own right, pioneering original content for the web with the musical Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog, The Guild and Dragon Age. She is also writing the third season of TableTop, a series in which a panel of guests play board games. Her company Geek and Sundry worked with Legendary Entertainment, Amy Poehler’s Smart Girls and the Nerdist to provide a separate interactive experience at Petco Park during San Diego Comic-Con. Speaking of conventions, Day appears in Alan Tudyk’s upcoming web comedy Con Man.

We spoke to the darling of geek culture about the convention experience, the evolution of original web content, women in geek culture fandom and her upcoming memoir, You’re Never Weird on the Internet. Watch the interview below where we asked Felicia about her most surreal con experience.
