We are prepping a much longer Comic-Con round up post for you fans who are going to San Diego this week, but I had to share this right frakkin' now. Cuz it makes me so darned happy.
I just noticed that Spike TV's Scream Awards Comic-Con panel "Scream Like a Girl" this weekend will feature Lucy Lawless onstage talking with Kevin Smith. Oh joy of joys.
Here are all the deets:

"SCREAM" Like a Girl
Spike loves women. And the coolest women on the planet are the ones who destroy aliens, defeat serial killers and battle evil villains with their superpowers! In honor of Spike's ScreamAwards 2008—the first and most important televised event that celebrates the genius creative talent behind the powerhouse Hollywood genres of comic books, science fiction, fantasy and horror—Spike brings you a candid discussion of these genres from the women they love, who are poised to rule the fanboy's universe! Moderator Kevin Smith (Clerks), the brilliant writer, director, and comic book genius hosts an all-female panel of actresses, artists, writers, directors, and producers, including Gale Ann Hurd (Terminator, Terminator 2), Lucy Lawless (Xena, Battlestar Galactica), Jaime King (The Spirit, Sin City), and Pia Guerra (Y: The Last Man), in a discussion about working in these genres from their unique point of view. Twenty lucky panel attendees will win tickets to the 2008 Scream Awards.
Meanwhile, speaking of Kevin Smith: EW's Marc Bernardin is moderating the "Visionary Filmmakers" panel with Smith, Zack Snyder, Judd Apatow and Frank Miller -- and is seeking fandom questions for the panel over here.
