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 21+ that will look at the art, science and technology featured in some of our favorite comics.

How do artists create the artwork? How do writers develop the stories?

Are they communicating realistic scientific concepts?

Could they even be predicting what's to come in science and technology?

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! Events will be held at the San Diego Comic Art Gallery in Liberty Station on select Friday nights. Come to one or all!

Location: San Diego Comic Art Gallery, 2765 Truxtun Road, Barracks 3, Liberty Station, San Diego, CA 92106

Cost: $15 per event. Tickets include two beers from a local brewery and one comic book from IDW. NOTE: 21+ ONLY! IDs will be checked at the door.

Very cool. I have to admit I am curious to hear how My Little Pony intersects with Neuroscience.

I found a book once: "The science of the X-Men" where it goes into detail on how their powers work.  It's pretty darn cool.  :)

I have a "Science of the X-Men" book that I found years ago.  It's pretty interesting how they go in depth how Kitty's phasing, etc works.
