Welcome To Geekdom Day – An epic introduction to geeky hobbies

Sandton, Gauteng – At Central City Comics we want everyone to feel welcome and to get to enjoy the Geeky hobbies we love. That’s why we are starting our Welcome to Geekdom Day. A day where people from all walks of life and different Fandoms, whether they are people who love the superhero movies, geek fence-sitters or full blown fans, can come and try out different hobbies.

The Welcome to Geekdom day is welcome to anyone and everyone. The day will be filled with various geek activities and discussions for you to join in or watch. The activities and chats will be run by amazing people who are big geeks in their respective activities and the speakers range from Sean Izaakse, a Marvel Comic Book Artist to Central City’s own staff getting involved. More info around each activity will be released closer to the date on the Facebook event link, here: https://www.facebook.com/events/698282783713649/

When: 29th July 2017

Where: Unit 6, Sandton Commercial Village, Cnr 7th & Marlboro Dr Sandton

Time:  10am – 2pm although some of the activities need to be pre-booked for.

The event is Free to attend with only one Golden RULE:

No judgement, this day is for people who want to learn, discuss and enjoy new hobbies or get fresh insight into old ones. Be EPIC #CCHeroes not villains.

Why are we doing this?

Central City Comics was the dream of two guys who loved their comics, movies, toys, gadgets, zombies, sci-fi epics, costumes and general geekery. It was either become superheroes or open a comics and pop culture superstore. They went with the latter, but they knew that getting into some of the geek spheres can be difficult.

‘I know what it’s like to walk into a store and feel overwhelmed and uncomfortable when I wanted to look at and ask for advice on comics and someone would say there was no point getting into reading Super-man comics if I hadn’t read all 300 comics that come out before it. We don’t want our hobbies and community to be diminished because people feel they can’t begin without being judged for not having been a geek all their lives or for not having read/played or watched every version of the Fandom’ says Lee Herrmann, co-owner of Central City Comics.

Activities/ Discussions:

Welcome to Board games – Enjoy tables of demo games or bring your own if you would like to share your favourite with some new geeks. Central City’s sidekicks will be there to help by showing you how to play, rules queries or to be impartial judges when victory points are tied.

Welcome to Comics – Casual Chats around what makes comics awesome and how to start reading, drawing or writing them. Run by Sean Izaakse, Marvel Artist and Nas Hoosen,one of the founders of SECTOR, a South African comics anthology.

Run by Carla Harris,GM of the Dum Dum Die Podcast and Marketing Goblin for How to be a Great Game Master.

Welcome to Live Action Roleplaying – Bring your roleplaying characters to life in this live action boffer larp.

    關于Ion Magnum技術: 它的作用是加快脂肪代謝而轉化成肌肉。專業設計的微電流模擬大腦到肌肉的正常神經傳導。乙醯膽鹼及ATP(産生能量的物質)都是由神經末梢釋放的。神經元共振導致神經末梢持續不斷的釋放ATP,甚至能達到正常釋放量的500。 Ion Magnum應用的是世界定級的神經生理學技術,它加快脂肪燃燒的速度,增强肌肉收縮,提高基礎代謝率(指的是你靜息狀態下消耗卡路里的速率)。複雜的微電流包含2000次與正常生理過程的相互作用,由此達到人體自然狀態下所不能達到的效果。它可以加快能量的轉化,增强體力和運動能力。 Ion Magnum目前由位於英國的創新科學研究中心開發、製造,該中心是由歐盟提供資金支持的。該設備及其組件均是由英國頂級的科學家手工製作的。該産品有CE標志,CE標志是歐洲共同市場的安全標志。 Ion Magnum基於最新的起搏器技術。
