"The Science Fiction genre is known for tackling important social issues and examining the human condition, as well as things exploding or being on fire. Alex DeCampi (Smoke, Grindhouse), Adam Rakunas (Windswept), Margaret Trauth (Decrypting Rita), Douglas Wolk (Judge Dredd: Mega City 2) and Arthur Wyatt (2000AD) take a look at the tropes and themes of modern SF and the intersection of flashy eye-candy and deeper meaning." That's right - an ECCC panel with not one, not two, but three Mefites! If you are at ECCC, swing on by!
FREE and open to all ages. The 2015 Massachusetts Independent Comics Expo (MICE) is this weekend in Porter Square! Speakers and guests this year will include Dustin Harbin, Jennifer Hayden, Lucy Knisley, Ryan North, and Gene Luen Yang! [more inside]
I will be giving a talk on Batman villains and the insanity defense as part of a Super Heroines, Etc. event. Super Heroines, Etc. (aka SHE) is a St. Louis-based 501c3 nonprofit focused on empowering women through educational events, classes, and workshops. If that sounds like your kind of thing, then you should come!
ECCC attending Mefites might want to check out my panel on Judge Dredd: Arthur Wyatt (writer of Dredd: Underbelly and Dredd: Uprise), Douglas Wolk, Ryan Hill (creators of Judge Dredd: Mega-City Two, City of Courts) and artist Chris Burnham talk about the future lawman, his strange world, the Dredd movie and Pug Dredd.
If the event title appeals to you perhaps we can chat and get to know one another :) I am a Canadian woman in my early 30s with vacation time from January onwards, and no idea how to spend it. Rather than throw a dart at a map (while I chant unspeakable abominations) maybe this will help me refine my plan. I am just looking to make friends who share my interests. More inside...

I'll be signing copies of Dredd: Underbelly at Zanadu Comics in downtown Seattle on the 29th, that's the comic-based follow up to 2012 Dredd movie I wrote and Henry Flint drew. Hope to see some of you there!

I can't be the only MeFite going to Comic Con this year. What about the rest of y'all?
Heads Up, an exhibition that brings together diverse artists from across the county, all hand picked for being outstanding in their own fields. Exhibition runs from Saturday 19th until Sunday 27th May, open 10.30am-6pm (closed Monday 21st). [more inside]
Anyone else attending Professional's Thursdays at the New York City Comic-Con? We should meet and look at things and drink.
Anyone interested in seeing the Will Eisner New York exhibition at MoCCA? After some discussion, I figured Saturday, April 16 might be an auspicious date. I've been to the space before, and though the place isn't huge, this one looks fun. It's $5. Could do lunch before in Chinatown/SoHo also or just meet up at museum at 2:30.
On the last Sunday of each month, LAVA welcomes interested individuals to gather on the third floor of the historic Clifton's Cafeteria in Downtown Los Angeles (noon-2pm), for a loosely structured conversational Salon featuring short presentations and opportunities to meet and connect with one another. If you're interested in joining LAVA as a creative contributor or an attendee, we recommend Salon attendance as an introduction to this growing community. We also recommend the shortbread.
