Mary Anne Butler
Mary Anne Butler (Mab) has been part of the fast-paced world of journalism since she was 15, getting her start in album reviews and live concert coverage for a nationally published (print) music magazine. She eventually transitioned to online media, writing for such sites as UGO/IGN, ComicsOnline, Geek Magazine, Ace of Geeks, Aggressive Comix (where she is still Editor-in-Chief), Bleeding Cool (where she was News Editor), and now NerdBot as News Editor. Over the past 10 years, she’s built a reputation at conventions across the globe as a cosplayer (occasionally), photographer (constantly), panelist and moderator (mostly), and reporter (always). Interviews, reviews, observations, breaking news, and objective reporting are the name of the game for the founder of Harkonnen Knife Fight, a Dune-themed band with an international presence. Though she be but little, she is fierce.

We are heartbroken to type the words “last raid” for one of our absolute favorite shows, HISTORY’s “Vikings.” Such a staple and mainstay of our convention life for the last several years, saying goodbye won’t be easy, but we’re so happy we’ll have the chance.

Announced as part of Friday, July 24th’s San Diego Comic Con 2020 At Home virtual panel schedule, “Vikings: A Look Back with The Lothbroks” panel sounds perfect.

Showrunner and sole writer for the entire series Michael Hirst will join fan favorites Travis Fimmel (Ragnar Lothbrok), Katheryn Winnick (Lagertha), Alex Ludwig (Bjorn Ironside), Clive Standen (Rollo) and Jordan Patrick Smith (Ubbe) to discuss their favorite moments from the past six and a half seasons, favorite fan interactions during Comic-con and what makes Vikings so extraordinary.  

You’ll be able to watch the panel here when it goes live at 11am PST.
