group

Holy cow did we have a turnout on Monday at G-Mart! I could never have predicted that based on attendance of the last one. I guess it helps to have the combined forces of the meetup group and Alex’s social media prowess. People were working on some fantastic stuff and we had some conversations about the proper rankings of the Indiana Jones films (in terms of quality not chronologically), many people were astounded by Alex’s lack of 80’s pop culture knowledge, we perused a Go-Bots kids book illustrated by Jack Kirby, and Ed suggested that knowledge of who John Wayne Bobbitt is turns out to be a good litmus test of whether or not a person is under 25 years of age.

As is tradition, near the end, we took part in a comic exercise that we do from time to time (need to think of a name for this one). Everyone gets a blank six panel piece of paper with a random word in the top corner. They have five minutes to draw a panel based on the word and then pass it to the right. 30 minutes later you have finished comics! Here are some of the results:
