Hey everyone, I’m Entertainment Weekly’s senior writer Anthony Breznican. This week’s double issue is one of our biggest of the year—our annual San Diego Comic-Con preview—and my cover story this week is an exclusive first look from the set of “Black Panther.” It’s on newsstands now and you can check some of it out on EW.com here: http://ew.com/movies/2017/07/12/black-panther-ew-cover/.

I cover a wide range of books, movies, and TV shows — plus, I will be at SDCC next week. I also write fiction (I’m part of a YA short-story collection called "Behind the Song" that’s out in September, featuring tales inspired by famous songs.) Ask me anything about Black Panther, what it’s like to cover Comic-Con, and whatever else you can think of. That’s why they call this AMA.

You can also find me elsewhere on Twitter at @breznican.

JournalistI’m Bill Hudson, a reporter for WCCO-TV in Minneapolis. I was in the courtroom when the Officer Yanez was found not guilty of manslaughter after he shot Philando Castile during a traffic stop. AMA. http://www.topiama.com/r/6159/im-bill-hudson-a-reporter-for-wccotv-in The shooting of Philando Castille gained national attention when the aftermath was streamed live on Facebook – promoting protests in the Twin Cities and across the county. After days of deliberations, the jury found the officer involved in the shooting not guilty on all counts. I’ve been a reporter with WCCO-TV since 1989, and covered this trial since it started. Ask me all of your questions about the trial, testimonies and verdict reactions. For background, here’s WCCO’s full story on the trial: http://cbsloc.al/2s3kz2f as well as a timeline from the shooting to the trial: http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/14/timeline-philando-castile-jeronimo-yanez/

Update - Thank you everyone for your very thoughtful questions. Very engaging discussion and one I am sure will continue for a long time. I have to be honest and tell you this was among the most difficult trials I have covered in my career. Nobody feels good about the situation! Thank you all.

JournalistI am an Alabama-based Weird News Reporter who writes about seriously weird stuff, like haunted asylums and Bigfoot. AMA http://www.topiama.com/r/6058/i-am-an-alabamabased-weird-news-reporter-who I’m Kelly Kazek (Kay-zick). My title is Weird News Reporter and humor columnist for AL.com. That means I actually get paid to write about things like World’s Largest roadside attractions, car-part art, Bigfoot, haunted mental asylums and more.

I am also the author of 8 books and have a blog at KellyKazek.com. You can follow me on Twitter at @kellykazek.

I was a single mom for 20 years after my Baby Girl’s father died, and I remarried in October 2016. Sweetums is a 6-foot-7 Bigfoot enthusiast and we had a Weird Road Trip-themed wedding with a roadside attractions cake.

JournalistWe’re the Florida reporters who looked into 827 state police shootings and tried to explain WHY COPS SHOOT. We created an online database for you to explore. Ask us anything http://www.topiama.com/r/5951/were-the-florida-reporters-who-looked-into-827 Our short bio: We’re Ben Montgomery and Neil Bedi, reporters at the Tampa Bay Times. We just published a project studying six years of Florida police shootings. Our main story looked into the different circumstances that led to the 827 shootings and ways to avoid the violence. A separate interactive story looked at the least violent people shot and the racial breakdowns of specific questionable circumstances. We have videos looking at specific cases the main story dives into. And, for PROOF, we published a database of every case, and built it so each one is treated as its own story.

Handles:

  • /u/BenjiMontgomery - Reporter
  • /u/NeilBedi - Reporter/Web developer (Connie Humburg, our database expert will also be available to answer though one of us)
