This group is for everyone and anyone who shares in a wide range of geekdom! Sci-fi, fantasy, comic books lovers, video gamers, movie buffs, comedy nerds, cosplayers, otakus, WoW and D&D addicts, etc. As geeks we sometimes don’t have the time to venture out into the real world and meet up with people that might want to do the same stuff we do or be exposed to new things. This group hopes to solve that by holding a variety of events from movie nights, geek improv comedy shows, board game extravaganzas, random social gatherings at arcade bars and trivia nights.
Join us for dinner and/or drinks at the Crossroads Collective and then let's watch Escape from New York at the Oriental. Movie starts at 9:30pm.
When the President (Donald Pleasence) crash lands on the island of Manhattan, now a maximum security prison, Snake Plissken (Kurt Russell) is sent in to rescue him...or die trying.
Let's enjoy a relaxing evening playing some games. Drop by and join in, or feel free to bring board games, card games or dice games. The bar also has an extensive board game library. Newcomers are most welcome. Bring friends, or make new ones. And remember the pub is in the streetcar route which is still free.
A lot of you when you joined mentioned comic books as one of your fandoms. Whether you are just a fan of the movies but starting to read comics seems daunting or you are a seasoned comic book collector this meeting is for you. My goal is to have a book club but for comic books/graphic novels. We will do mostly accessible stories from Image, Marvel and DC.
I want to start by discussing the award winning "God Country" by Image Comics. You can get in Amazon/Comixology, Milwaukee Public Library or I can lend you a digital version.
"SOUTHERN BASTARDS meets American Gods in a high-stakes fantasy series that masterfully blends high-octane action and jaw-dropping worldbuilding.
In GOD COUNTRY, readers meet Emmett Quinlan, an old widower rattled by dementia. Emmett isn't just a problem for his children—his violent outbursts are more than the local cops can handle. When a tornado levels his home—as well as the surrounding West Texas town—a restored Quinlan rises from the wreckage.
An enchanted sword at the eye of the storm gives him more than a sound mind and body, however. He's now the only man who can face these otherworldly creatures the sword has drawn down to the Lone Star State...
In GOD COUNTRY salvation is a double-edged sword. "
If you don't want to read it. I also recommend this video from a YouTube channel that brought me back to comics.
Movie starts at 6pm. Let's meet at the entrance at 5:30pm
