The Batman Movie Massacre

I don’t live in Aurora, but I do live close to there and know the theater that this all took place at. My thoughts go out to everyone who has been affected by this tragedy, and I’m sickened to hear that another small bit of humanity has been chipped away.

I mean, a six-year-old girl was killed. At the movies.

It’s just not fair.

If you’re not aware of what happened, here’s a link.

For everyone going to see The Dark Knight Rises or any other film this weekend, I hope you stay safe and are able to enjoy the experience.

Denver Comic Con 2012!

So I live in Colorado, and it was brought to my attention by a friend that there will be a Comic Con in Denver this year! I’ve always wanted to go to a con (specifically the Comic Con), so to hear about this is extremely exciting!

From June 15th-17th at the Colorado Convention Center, the Rocky Mountain region is getting its first major comic con in beautiful downtown Denver, Colorado! Come join our many wonderful guests and help support a great cause!

Guests that have been confirmed include Gail Simone, Jason Aaron, Bob Layton, Sean Gordon Murphy, James O’Barr, Zach Howard, Rebekah Isaacs, Katie Cook, Noah Van Sciver and probably more to come as June approaches.

There isn’t an actual listing of events up yet, but as with the guests appearing, more details will probably pop up as the event date draws closer.

What’s also awesome about this event (besides, duh, comic con!) is that the entire event benefits Comic Book Classroom, a non-profit after-school program that fosters children’s literacy by using comic books and graphic novels. As a nerd and a future educator, this is crazy awesome and something I definitely want to support!

It also looks like the event is looking for volunteers, so if you’re interested definitely check out their website.

Again, it’ll be from June 15-17, 2012 at the Colorado Convention Center. There are discounted rooms available at the Hyatt Regency across the street from the convention center for $99 (while supplies last), so make sure you book early! Tickets and hotel packages are available here.

I’m definitely going to try and attend (I’ll be sure to post and confirm whether or not I am), so be sure to let me know if you’re in the area and plan to go!
