Polish Your Armor, Felicia Day is Coming to the Phoenix Comicon

Phoenix, AZ – Felicia Day, the multi-talented actress, director, writer and producer best known for her online sitcom, The Guild, is going to be attending the 2010 Phoenix Comicon. The Guild is a wildly popular series, created and written by Day, about characters who are immersed in an online multiplayer game, such as World of Warcraft, but generic enough for anybody familiar with gaming to find humor in.

“Felicia Day tapped into of a generation of gamers,” said Convention Director Matt Solberg, “and found comedy everyone can relate to.” Cyd Sherman, known online as Codex, is Day’s Character on The Guild. She is a member of a socially awkward online gaming group that spends many hours a day playing the World of Warcraft-esque game.

In an instance of life imitating art imitating life, The Guild has been touted as one of the web TV world’s best shows.

“Felicia Day is the embodiment of what new media has to offer someone with real talent,” said Convention Communications Manager Kate Davids.

Although The Guild is her most popular project, Day has an impressive list of sci-fi credentials. On the hit television series Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Day played the role of Violet, a reoccurring character who is an ally of Buffy’s. She also has a part in the critically acclaimed internet musical, Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog, playing opposite Neil Patrick Harris as Penny, his love interest.
