Femme Night with Some Special Guests
And a Wicked & Divine Skype with Kieron Gillen
THIS WEEK’S EVENTS
Thursday, February 1 (6:30pm – 8:30pm) – Drink and Draw at Fantom Comics – From hosts DC Drink and Draw: “Fantom is a great hangout space for comic book fans and nerds of all stripes. Now that they can host happy hours, too, I thought it would be fun to team up! Drinks + drawing + comics = happiness.”
Friday, February 2 (6:30pm – 10:00pm) – Friday Night Magic – Booster draft and casual play! Everyone’s invited.
Saturday, February 3 (2:00pm – 4:00pm) – Wicked + Divine vol. 6 book club Skype with Kieron Gillen – You know the drill! We’ll be Skyping with series writer and Fantom Friend Kieron Gillen once again, this time for vol. 6 (which hit stands on January 10)! If you’re reading in single issues, that’s issues #29-33.
Saturday, February 3 (7:00pm – 10:00pm) – Femme Night: Galentine’s Day with Dirty Diamonds – A couple years ago we had Kelly and Claire, the co-creators of the Philadelphia-based all-girl comic anthology DIRTY DIAMONDS, here for a crazy Femme Night and it was amazing, so we’re doing it again for our annual Galentine’s Day party! Each volume has a theme, and the newest DD theme is “SEX,” in whatever context that means to the creators. And it features some local artists too! PLUS: Claire and Kelly will be talking about the open call for submissions for the next Dirty Diamonds volume!
Sunday, February 4 (2:00 – 3:00pm) – 90s Superboy Book Club – The 90s Superboy run is being collected in volumes so we’re going to have a book club to talk about it. Superboy, who is now living in Hawaii, tries to balance being a superhero and going to school for the first time! Will he be 2 kool 4 school?
Monday, February 5 (6:30pm – 9:30pm) – Comics & Cocktails – NOTE: We’re back at The Board Room just north of Dupont Circle once again.
