This is Why Year of the Fangirl is Awesome – Trek versus Wars

I’m continuing to highlight fangirls I have discovered through Her Universe’s Year of the Fangirl.

Fangirl of the Day Andrea Letamendi appeared on the San Diego Comic-Con panel “The Psychology of Star Trek versus Star Wars.” On Ali Mattu’s Brain Knows Better there is a great rundown of the panelists’ answers topic by topic. Drea’s fellow champion of Star Wars, Bryan Young, has uploaded the audio at Full of Sith.

Bryan Young’s daughter Scout was also a Fangirl of the Day. Recently she inspired her father to create an illustrated book, which is now a Kickstarter.  You can hear the whole story of how her curiosity sparked the idea for A Children’s Illustrated History of Presidential Assassination at the Kickstarter page.

Oh, and one more thing, Jaina Solo shirts are back in stock at Her Universe!
