You can't have a summer-long geeky convention without comic books.
Dean Hodge, a comic book artist, visited campus to give inspiration for developing comic book characters as part of Roberts Library's LibraryCon.
He told participants to start with a silhouette and add a few defining details, maybe a bow and arrow, maybe a funky hat, maybe curled shoes. Let the character start taking shape before adding facial features or clothes.
He even helped people draw a few panels, the beginnings of developing a storyline.
The rough draft storyboards were full of action, like a pizza delivery man and a turtle working together.
Comic books aren't the only part of LibraryCon. Earlier this summer the library hosted an event to make a magic wand, a book talk on the females of the Authorian legend, and a chance to make potions.
The summer of geeky fun continues with Harry Potter themed book talks and events, in-depth discussions on Lord of the Rings, and a game night.
