Galt Museum brings us “Nerd Fest”

From March 21-23, The Galt Museum & Archives is holding "Nerd Fest," featuring all sorts of comic book, gaming, trivia, space geekery…and even socialization (with possible dancing/touching)!

Nerd Fest kicks off with the history of comic books, followed by a 2-day workshop with leading comic book artist Scott McCloud, a pop culture movie trivia night, and an all night games tourney. Also on the calendar during the Festival are a talk by Canada's first female austronaut Dr. Roberta Bondar, and a Superheroes Dinner!

If I hadn't given up my super powers to save the Earth and live among mortals, I would consider the dinner & dance…however that might trigger me. The games night sounds awesome, as I've been meaning to learn to play Dungeons & Dragons for, like, forever.

Check out my guest strip for Team Jetpack 104!

Zac Erickson, who’s from Raymond (I’ll forgive him), is the creator of a web comic called Team Jetpack 104. Now I’ve never met him in real life, but follow him on Twitter alongside a few other Lethbridge peeps.

He’s been striving to improve his art skills and it inspired me to make a strip for him. He hasn’t taken me up on that offer yet, but did gleefully accept the guest comic I drew! Here it is:

Also, watch for an upcoming interview with Zac!
