Hey nerds,

This is your friendly reminder that next week (May 21st) is the Fresno Zombie Society Comic Crawl. Whether you just have an Iron Man t-shirt from Target, or you like to go full Poison Ivy, come join literally thousands of other people who are all united in their twin loves of pop culture and alcohol.

I went last year and I am here to tell you that this is a really good time, with some balls-out (not literally) (well, maybe) fantastic cosplay and something like a dozen great venues. There are drink specials, cosplay photo bingo (it’s way cooler than it sounds and I’m told there will be a prize), and everyone’s friendlier than you’d expect from fucking Fresno.

And FYI, despite it being called “Comic Crawl”, you don’t HAVE to be a superhero. It’s really more like “Pop Culture Crawl” – last year there were Indiana Joneses and Mal Reynoldses and Star Trekkers, etc. There was even a Wickett, and she was adorable.

So, no excuses. Come on out and let your geek flag fly!

PS: Be sure to say hi if you see me. I’m always down to meet fellow niners.

PPS: If “thousands of people” sounds daunting and likely to inflame social anxieties or whatever – well, I understand. But my experience was very positive and there was a surprising lack of bullshit. So, y’know. For what that’s worth.
