Pop X-travaganza


What would David Duchovny’s sex-addicted character in Californication do if he ran into his flame-haired co-star, Gillian Anderson, from back in her X-Files days? Go ahead and ask them both during the X-Files panel this Sunday, at the eighth iteration of the ever-more-mega New York Comic Con. Hundreds of pop-cult personalities will be there in the flesh, including Laura Haddock of Da Vinci’s Demons, both starship Enterprise captains (Patrick Stewart and William Shatner), and the creators of the upcoming movie and graphic novel The Fifth Beatle, about Brian Epstein, the band’s doomed manager. Plus, you can put the “comic” back in Comic Con by chatting with the pencilers and inkers in Artist Alley who draw everything from superheroes to emo girls.
