I ventured out to Sun City Scifi this morning and got re-united with my inner geek.  Actually, that’s a lie, me and my inner geek were never really separated.  The convention was a great experience and you don’t necessarily need to be a “geek” to enjoy it.  Here are some highlights from my experience.

Sun City Scifi will continue on Sunday, March 16th.

Black Sheep Comics - located on the Eastside, the shop is owned and operated by women.  Every 3rd Saturday, female customers save 15% on NEW comics.

Spiralmind – Ben Perez and Matt Rothblatt, both local and co-creaters of the Spiralman Comic Book series have some pretty exciting things in store for their title.  Spiralmind will actually be featured in the new Johnny Depp Movie, “Transcendence.”  They also have a live action Spiralmind movie that was screened at Sun CityScifi.
