Whoopi Goldberg Makes Her Comic Pitch To DiDio And Quesada [Video] [NYCC 2013]

Anyway you look at it, Whoopi Goldberg has had an incredibly successful and varied career in entertainment (homegirl EGOTed, ya’ll). But for some folks, her most recognizable role will forever be as Guinan from Star Trek: The Next Generation, so it seemed perfectly natural that she’d attend last weekend’s New York Comic Con. But Goldberg wasn’t there to bask in Next Gen fan love. Rather, the award winning actress, and co-host on The View, was on the con floor pitching her idea for a comic.

She got advice from a few celebrities in attendance — Ronald D. Moore, Seth Green, Clare Grant, Kevin Smith, and Kristin Baur van Straten, among others — and made her pitch to DC Comics Co-Publisher Dan DiDio and Marvel Chief Creative Office Joe Quesada.

 

 

The ending of the video at least seemed somewhat promising for Goldberg. Maybe she’ll become the first black woman to write a comic for Marvel. It turns out all it takes is to be a wealthy celebrity. Who knew?
