Rosario Dawson, the gorgeous ass-kicker from Sin City and now star of newly released Clerks II, is a big ol’ geek, if you ask her.
Dawson made an appearance at Comic-Con, the country's largest comic book convention, to discuss her roles that have ventured into toonland.
Entrepreneur, actor and producer Dawson is one of the brains behind "The Occult Crimes Taskforce," a new comic book series that tells the story of the supernatural gone wild in New York City.
Dawson was the muse that inspired character Sophia Ortiz, a detective who "deals with crimes of the magical context," she said to press at Comic-Con.
During a Q&A session with fans, Dawson told fans her work with comics was in ways more fulfilling for her.
"This really is the most exciting thing I've been doing, as an actor; you're only a third of the production. With this I get to be so much a part of all of it." Dawson told the fans at Comic-Con.
Comic reviewers offer "very intelligent criticism, which is really sorely lacking in film reviews right now," Dawson said to the press.
The made in America mix of Puerto Rican, Cuban, African American, Irish and Native American New York babe has a slew of upcoming projects include Quentin Tarantino's Death Proof and Sin City 2.
