Die-hard fans know comics are no trivial matter. They aren’t just picture books for children and geeky adults. Comics have a long history of addressing complex issues, from science lab accidents to ethics, moral issues, and social justice. Join IDW Publishing and the Fleet Science Center for a four-part event series for adults and young adults (15+) that will look at the art, science, and technology featured in some of our favorite comics. In this series, comic book artists, writers, and local scientists will give short talks, followed by open discussion, addressing the creative and scientific sides of comics. Enjoy local brews and stimulating discussion with comic book creators and fans.
