Yo, it's Free Comic Book Day, so head over to your local comic book shoppe! There may or may not be a cute girl cosplaying at Showcase Comics. I have yet to see this, but will ensure to give my best hoverhand if my mom will let me go.
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.

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:
