gr star wars clone wars comic-conLionel Lum's awesome Bumblebee costume was one of the many cool things I saw at last year's San Diego Comic-Con. The giant show floor was packed with sweaty costumed fans, big geek friendly displays, and a few not-so incognito celebs. Folks at home got a small taste of all the corporate sponsored nerdery thanks to G4's daily coverage. This year, G4 will air the first televised panel in the convention's history.

Attack of the Show
hosts Olivia Munn and Kevin Pereira will host "The Star Wars Spectacular." The taped panel will feature special guests, a table read and new footage from Cartoon Network's Star Wars: The Clone Wars. The panel will take place July 24 and air July 25 at 2 p.m. on G4. After the panel broadcast, G4 will air three live hours (on the East Coast) of Comic-Con coverage with celeb interviews and more.

G4 has set up a Web site where people can submit their Star Wars fan stories, in typed or video form, to be part of Lucasfilm's historical archive. The network is also asking fans to submit Clone Wars-related questions for Lucasfilm exec Steve Sansweet and supervising director Dave Filoni. Here's mine: "Hey, guys. Love your work. So can you please buy my Clone Wars spec script where Chewbacca strangles Jar Jar Binks and Obi-Wan 'accidentally' shoves his lightsaber through Ashoka's chest? Thanks, Mike."
