Drawing A Crowd recap

Haywood used our "neighbor" theme uniquely. There is something called Super-Team Family: The Lost
Issues where comic book covers are made up of unlikely pairings. There are something like 2000 of them.
  • DC / Marvel such as Wonder Woman / Black Widow
  • Star Trek / Star Wars such as Mr. Spock / Princess Leia (Oh my!!)
These covers illustrate a unique concept of "family" that was enjoyed by attendees. Next up were
topics ranging from film to TV:
  • Peter Jackson WW I documentary - They Shall Not Grow Old (2018)
  • 300th episode of Supernatural with return of fan favorite Jeffrey Dean Morgan as dad John

Fun continued at the Land & Sea Diner.
DAC - Caribbean Dreams
3/13/19 recap

Our March theme of Caribbean Dreams was well represented. Haywood showed a video of six comic
figures that were connected with the Caribbean:
  • Calypso
  • Doctor Voodoo
  • Shades
  • Power Man
  • Jet
  • Hairbag
Many were not familiar with these lesser known figures, so it was fun learning about new entries to search
for. Following these characters, Haywood showed a trailer for an upcoming Supergirl episode where Jon
Cryer will be portraying Lex Luthor. The Shazam trailer was also featured. Festivities continued at the
nearby Land & Sea Diner. Fun and informative as always.
