The Science of Transformers explained with “Crossover: Where Comics & Science Meet” at San Diego Comic Art Gallery
Tomorrow on Friday November 16th, IDW Publishing will be working with the Fleet Science Center for “Crossover: Where Comics & Science Meet”, bringing together IDW Transformers creators with engineering professor Dr. Sonia Martinez Diaz from UC San Diego, for a look into how the Transformers comics relate to real life.
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 a four-part event series for adults and young adults 15+ that will look at the art, science and technology featured in some of our favorite comics.
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!
The second event in the series discusses Transformers and the science of robotics. Could future cars rearrange themselves into robots? What are robots today that already help protect the inhabitants of earth? And where do writers get their inspiration from?
Time: 6:30–8 p.m.
Location: San Diego Comic Art Gallery, 2765 Truxtun Rd., Barracks 3, Liberty Station,
NOTE: 15+ ONLY! IDs will be checked for drink tickets.
We thank our generous beer sponsor Pariah Brewing Co. for supporting Crossover: Where Comics & Science meet this year!
