The following was posted on the Chicago Now site about Lucy and Andy's appearances at Comic Con

Lucy Lawless of "Spartacus" will be at Comic-Con on Friday.

Starz is doing a big push for its January series "Spartacus: Blood and Sand" at Comic-Con. The series stars Lucy Lawless of "Xena" and "Battlestar Galactica" fame and newcomer Andy Whitfield as Spartacus, the soldier who becomes a slave, then a gladiator in Roman times.

Everywhere I looked during preview night I saw Spartacus stuff, and before the Friday panel, Starz will be giving away fan packs with tons of goodies inside. They are planning a Spartacus iPhone game, a motion comic and already have created a companion comic book with Chicago publishing company Devil's Due.

I stopped by the Devil's Due booth Thursday and talked the company president Josh Blaylock. He showed me the first issue of the Spartacus comic, which is filled with some amazing artwork of some very gruesome gladiator fighting. If the show is that action-packed, it's going to be amazing. I just hope I don't pass out from all the gore.

I'll be attending the "Spartacus" panel and press interview time. So if you have any questions for Lucy Lawless or the creators, Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert among them, shoot me a note in the comments section.
