We have some exciting and interesting news to share with you today regarding Crossover, a 4 Part event held in San Diego where Comic Books and Science crash head on into each other!

Crossover has been a 4 part event that has run from March to November of this year, with the previous 3 parts including Star Trek, GI Joe Vs. Six Million Dollar Man, and Sonic the Hedgehog. And now, the 4th and final part is to include Transformers. During these sessions, the comic book writers who bring these stories to life sit down with real life scientists to discuss their work, if there are real science applications in the comics they write, and if those comics are speaking to a wider audience and with a wider message than we may think.

The Transformers section of the program is being held November 16 from 6:30 to 8:00 PM at the San Diego Comic Art Gallery, and featured guests will include John Barber, Livio Ramondelli, and Brandon Easton. Tickets are on sale between $7 and $25, and you can find the link to those tickets HERE.

So what do you make of this Crossover? Will you be going? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below!

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.

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!

The second event in the series discusses Transformers and the science of robotics. Could future cars rearrange themselves into robots? What are robots today that already help protect the inhabitants of earth? And where do writers get their inspiration from?

Time: 6:30–8 p.m.

Tickets:

Guests 21+ $15, includes 2 beer from Pariah Brewing Co. and one comic book

VIP Tickets 21+ $25, includes 2 beers from a local brewery, reserved seating and a swag bag

Designated Driver and Guests under 21 ticket, $7, includes a comic book

VIP Tickets guest 21 and under $15, includes reserved seating and a swag bag

They should put "quantum" in the event name to make it cooler.
