Crossover: Where Comics and Science Meet!


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 some fun events that will look at the stories, science and technology featured in some of our favorite comics.

  • 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 writers and local scientists will give short talks, followed by open discussion, addressing the creative and scientific sides of comics. Enjoy stimulating discussions with comic book creators and fans! 

Stay tuned as we dream up more fun ways to cross popculture with science!
