Re: B5 Hashtag ( #freeBabylon5 ) on Twitter

For anybody attending San Diego Comic-Con, here's the B5 related items:

#FreeBabylon5 - A Fan Campaign
Jan Schroeder ( and Jon Del Arroz ( discuss a growing fan campaign that sprang up after J. Michael Straczynski tweeted the hashtag #FreeBabylon5 and urged fans to "get organized and loud" if Babylon 5 fandom is to grow. See what has been accomplished so far and help brainstorm what can be done in the future to promote this seminal science fiction show and bring it to new viewers.

The Art of Babylon 5
Members of the iconic show's art department, under production designer John Iacovelli, with art director Mark-Louis Walters, art director Roland Rosenkranz, graphic artist Alan Kobayashi, and concept artist and set designer Timothy Earls, reunite to discuss how they were able to design 110 episodes over five years and six TV movies while keeping the sets fresh, exciting and, well, out of this world.

Spotlight on J. Michael Straczynski:
Comic-Con special guest JMS is having a Renaissance (much as the European Renaissance followed the Black Plague, but you didn't hear that from us). His Image-based imprint Joe's Comics has produced such titles as Dream Police, Sidekick, Ten Grand, and The Adventures of Apocalypse Al, alongside writing a Terminator maxiseries for Dark Horse and a Twilight Zone maxiseries for Dynamite. His new TV series Sense8 (written and produced with the Wachowskis) began filming this past June for Netflix via Studio JMS, and he has four new TV series in development, in addition to writing the new Shadowman movie for Valiant. Get the latest news on secret upcoming projects, a sneak peek into the production of Sense8, and other surprises.

Even if you can't go, please help spread the word about the #FreeBabylon5 panel as widely as you can. SDCC pays close attention to attendance and ours is the first one on the first day when a lot of people will still be picking up their badges.

"You know, I used to think that life was terribly unfair. Then I thought, wouldn't it be much worse if life were fair? If all the terrible things that happen to us come because we actually deserve them? So now I take great comfort in the general hostility and unfairness of the universe." ~~Marcus Cole
