If you missed the announcement, GeekCLE is teaming up with Ohio City Writers for 24 Hour Comics Day. This day long party starts October 4th at 7pm, and ends, as you may have guessed, after 24 hours. Registration is now open and spaces are limited, so make sure to sign up!
We’re also working with OCW to bring kids a D&D for Beginners series to teach 5th – 9th graders the basics of Dungeons and Dragons. September 18th at 7p we will help attendees create their first character and on September 25th at 7p we will introduce game play.
We have a couple events this week, so come hangout! Here is your list of geeky events in Cleveland this week.
We will be at the Happy Dog tonight for author Brad Ricca’s reading, discussion, and signing of his book Super Boys: The Amazing Adventures of Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster — The Creators of Superman. Starts at 7:30 in the Underdog.
Also starting at 7:30 at the Happy Dog, The Life, the Universe and Hot Dogs series brings in Dr. Joseph LaManna of CWRU to talk about about brain metabolism.
POP! The Comic Culture Club, a club open to everyone who is interested in a friendly discussion meets tonight to chat about “The Comics Code Authority”.
Fans that have been patiently awaiting for Secret #3 for the past year, it’s finally going to be available this Wednesday. Also available, the Sandman Omnibus Vol. 1 Hardcover collects #1 – #37, the first half of the series. If you are the type to wait for a TPB to come out to begin a series AND you haven’t read any Sandman, this is something you should really consider picking up.
The Capitol Theater will be showing Adjust Your Tracking, a documentary funded through Kickstarter about the rise in VHS collectors and the surrounding culture. This movie was whittled down from 1,000 hours of footage including interviews with Lloyd Kaufman of Troma fame and Tony Timpone, editor of Fangoria Magazine.
The GeekCLE Book Club, Cleveland’s premiere non-pretentious geek book club, has its first meeting Friday. We will be discussing Chuck Klosterman’s I Wear the Black Hat, which is fairly short at 200 pages, so get out and pick up a copy so you can join in discussing villains!
Grandmaster, a drama based on the life story of Wing Chun master and trainer of Bruce Lee, Ip Man, is released Friday.
We leave you this week with this piece of the internet:
