Meet the Cast of “The Guild” Tonight at Barnes and Noble

February 22, 2011 by  
Filed under Multimedia

One of the most talked about web series, The Guild, has landed in the world of comic books! This internet sensation is a story about a group of online gamers who eventually meet in real life. “The Knights of Good”, as they called themselves, found that although meeting in real life was awkward, they were still a strong team in game. This hilarious comedy series won numerous awards and has become a huge hit, gaining fans from all over the world.

Felicia Day, creator, writer, and star of “The Guild” now graces us with a graphic-novel prequel to the web series. The comic takes us back to the days before the “Knights of Good” and shows us how Cyd’s life was like before gaming, how she became Codex, and how her friendships with the guild members came to be.

In addition to the new graphic novel, the latest season of The Guild is now available on DVD and planning for Season 5 is in the works!

Purchase either The Guild graphic novel or Season 4 DVD (or both) at Barnes and Noble in LA at the Grove Mall and have them signed by the cast. Actors Felicia Day, Vincent Caso, Amy Okuda, Robin Thorsen will be at the event.

Be sure to get to Barnes and Noble early. Wristbands will be distributed today (Feb. 22, 2011) at 9am with purchase of ‘The Guild’ graphic novel or The Guild Season Four DVD. For more information on the event, see BarnesAndNoble.com.

On October 24, 2010, Frank proposed to his girlfriend Kasey. He asked his geeky friends to help him pull off an elaborate surprise proposal in New York City’s Central Park. Hidden cameras were synced with special iPhone apps so the entire event could be watched from a safe distance. Kasey was lured to a specific location by a friend, who was in on the whole surprise.

If Hollywood can make an overly dramatic film about the early years of Facebook, why can’t we make an overly dramatic movie about Twitter? Or at least the trailer to that movie! Check out the exclusive (parody) trailer for “The Twit Network” right here on Rated Awesome!

The Streamy Awards is the first and most prestigious awards ceremony devoted to honoring excellence in original web television programming and those who create it. The annual ceremony, and its live online broadcast, brings together top talent, decision-makers and influencers shaping the online entertainment industry.
