About Crossover:

Diehard 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 Reuben H. 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!
