Comic Con has become a phenomenon that has changed the face of not just popular culture but all aspects of life. With the push to include graphic novels, film, and even cosplay into the 21st Century classroom, these events have started to cater to educators through programming, author events, and classroom-friendly content. This panel will offer educators new to Comic Con tips and tricks from seasoned educators who can show them the ropes on how to get the most out of their fan fest weekend!

Where Ideas Begin

Today’s Jane’s World comic:

jw180815

I just had to share a small bit of backstory on this one. We haven’t been having flooding in California lately. Unfortunately, just the opposite. It is extremely dry here. So that part of the comic isn’t based in reality, but the disaster element, and the DMV are. My wife was away one week in May, so of course I promptly went out with a pal of mine to see a science fiction movie and then for BBQ afterward. It was only a short time later that I realized something was horribly wrong with that bit of pulled pork I’d eaten. I suffered twenty-four hours of food poisoning and was just beginning to feel better when my tiny dog, Buddy Barker, cornered a skunk in the yard and got sprayed. Having only just recovered from being deathly ill, skunk smell was not helping with my recovering. The next morning, as I was getting packed to travel the following day I realized my driver’s license had expired. Gah! I had no choice but to cold call the DMV for a replacement because I needed a rental car when I arrived at my destination. (It only took five hours in line.) Are you keeping count? I suffered food poisoning, getting skunked, AND the Department of Motor Vehicles all in one week.

I’m not sure which is more zany sometimes, Jane’s World, or mine.

Happy Friday.
