On related news, Summer Glau, as well as Jewel Staite, Adam Baldwin and Gina Torres will join Philadelphia Comic Con 2013 at the end of May 2013. Ottawa ComicCon organizers have also invited Summer Glau to their Montreal ComicCon, to be held on September 13-15, 2013.
Here's an exclusive trailer for the Peter Panzerfaust motion comic featuring the voice talent of Elijah Wood as Peter, Ron Perlman as Kapitan Haken and Summer Glau as Wendy, adapted from the comic book series by Kurtis Wiebe (story) and Tyler Jenkins (art and cover).
Published by Image Comics/Shadowline, Peter Panzerfaust reimagines J. M. Barrie's original Peter Pan story as a World War II-era adventure, and follows the adventures of an American freedom fighter Peter (voiced by Elijah Wood) in Nazi-occupied Europe, who teams up with a group of French orphans called the Lost Boys, soon joined by the indomitable Wendy (voiced by Summer Glau), to defeat SS Kapitan Haken (voiced by Ron Perlman).
The motion comic trailer shows a glimpse of the artwork coming to life as well as what the actors sound like in their roles. Summer Glau's character Wendy has only one line of dialogue here but obviously she has more lines in the upcoming motion comic.
If the publication schedule announced at the Peter Panzerfaust panel at C2E2 on April 27, 2013 is maintained (the trailer was one day late compared to the initial schedule, though), the release of the full lenght motion comic should follow soon.
Philadelphia Comic Con attendees will be able to meet Summer Glau, Jewel Staite, Adam Baldwin and also Gina Torres (who has been added to the guest list as a replacement for Nathan Fillion who cancelled his participation a few days ago). The programming of the convention with all events/panels dates is now known, including the Firefly panel with Summer Glau, Jewel Staite and Adam Baldwin, and presumably Gina Torres.
To all Wizard World Philly atendees, please note that the Firefly panel will take place from 5:00 – 5:45PM at TERRACE BALLROOM 4 on Saturday June 1st.
You can also get VIP tickets for the Firefly guests (no VIP ticket for Jewel), as well as a special Firefly QUAD VIP Experience ticket:
I hope those of you who can join Wizard World Philly will have fun and feel free to share with us your anecdotes and photos from the convention, in the dedicated forum thread for example.
Some good news: even though Summer Glau lost her passport and was not able to make it to 2013 Ottawa Comic Con (Watch the video inwhich Summer apologizes to her fans and supporters), she was still able to join the Firefly panel via Skype.
Apparently catburglars - burglars who enter buildings by climbing through upper windows, skylights - are to blame for the missing passport but it's still unclear wether it was a joke or not.
Here are reports from con-goers:

There was no stream of Nathan Fillion/Jewel Staite's panel and fans were not allowed to take pics of the guests outside the photo ops (or had to do it discreetly).
Speaking about catburglars, Julie Newmar, who played Catwoman in the 60's Batman television series, was at the convention, just sayin'
Summer Glau had to cancel her appearance at the Ottawa Comiccon this weekend 11-12 May due to "a personal emergency" in the words of the convention organizers, which turned out to be a simple passport loss.
Summer Glau apologizes to her fans and supporters for not being able to make it to Ottawa Comiccon 2013 in a heartfelt video.
The good news is that Ottawa ComicCon organizers have invited her to their Montreal ComicCon, to be held on September 13-15, 2013. We will keep you informed as soon as Summer is added to the guest line-up for Montreal ComicCon.
UPDATE: Summer lost her passport and was not able to make it to 2013 Ottawa Comic Con, she was still able to join the Firefly panel via skype.
