As the uncool cool among you already know, "Firefly" will be celebrating its 10th Anniversary today with a Comic Con panel that will feature the likes of Joss Whedon, plus, of course, Nathan Fillion, Alan Tudyk, Adam Baldwin, Sean Maher and Summer Glau. The panel, along with some other interviews, will be edited together and aired on the Science Channel this November as Browncoats Unite.

Meanwhile, lots of folks started lining up in the wee hours of the morning -- including a friend of the site, the spectacular Harmalicious -- and who should show up and greet them all during their line-waiting experience but Joss Whedon himself. The Summer Glau Wiki has actually assembled a lot of the images being tweeted, should you all want to see what looks like when Joss Whedon congregates with real-life geeks in their natural habitat (SPOILER: Adorable). For those of you who can't attend Comic Con, this is a taste of what it looks like, minus the Twilight fans.

    I think the only thing that we can glean from this is that Joss Whedon is the greatest living human.

  • no one

    Joss Whedon is awesome.

  • BierceAmbrose

    Gorramit. Now I'm all verklempt.

    This is how it's supposed to be. You make something awesome, put your best out there. People respond to it. Everybody's enriched & thinks better of their trading partner for what they got and gave.

    You can't necessarily make a living doing what you love. That depends on talent, somewhat on luck, and sometimes on what you are willing to give up. Yet, there's some kind of balance, like a slider you set between impulse and calculation; between the art and audience, and the commerce that supports it. On one end there are soulless gnomes calculating 'splody robots & boobs only in terms of cash-y money extracted by the puppet theater. On the other end, there's the truth of the signal, which may or may not get you payed. Not everyone can get by doing what they love.

    Sometimes, only sometimes you get to see people of great talent & some luck, who are way beyond comfortable from doing what they love.

    See, now this, THIS is an example where it's OK and WORTHWHILE to get a fan picture with a celebrity.

  • laylaness

    *That's* Joss Whedon? I've never seen a picture of him before. I was wondering why Jesse Tyler Ferguson was waking up those poor, unsuspecting people in sleeping bags.

  • monkeysparkets

    Was it possible for me to be more smitten with this man? I would not have thought so...

  • anon

    Imagine if Joss Whedon suddenly burst upon you while you were camping out at comic-con. You'd have to assume you were dreaming.

  • Alyson McManus

    i would totally try to sleepmakeout with him too.

  • lowercase_see

    A friend of mine posted a picture with him on facebook this morning. I have never gotten so jealous so fast.

  • lowercase_ryan

    I just love him. I absolutely love that man.

    Why no Gina Torres on the panel?

  • Alyson McManus

    I believe Gina and Jewel had prior engagements they needed to attend to. Jewel is at London Comic Con but i dont remember where Gina is. She might be filming something currently.

  • teec

    I think Gina's shooting "Suits" and Jewel's doing "L.A. Complex"?

  • lowercase_ryan

    cool, thanks.

  • ShagEaredVillain

    Tell me he's sneaking up on the sleeping fans...

  • BobbFrapples

    Is he waking up the ones in the sleeping bags? After I recovered from the first wave of-good-god-someone-is-attacking-me-in-my-sleep panic, I'd be so smitten!

  • zyzzyva

    My friend is the one in the light colored sleeping bag. He said Joss was going down the line of sleeping fans, throwing out his hands and jokingly exclaiming, "Lazy!......Lazy!......Lazy!"

  • competitivenonfiction

    As adorable as waking people up is in theory, there is no one in the world who can wake me up like that peacefully and leave me with any affection for them. Joss would test this theory, but I'm pretty sure he'd wind up with a gauged out eye, while shocked onlookers watched me curl up and happily go back to sleep, before they all mauled me.

    I've just made an important decision: I will only sleep outside when camping, and never near Joss Whedon.
