Science Museum Oklahoma aims to attract adult comics and sci-fi fans with “Cosmic Con,” where I’ll appear on a panel with other science and pop culture experts.
“Cosmic Con” is set for 6:30 p.m. – 10 p.m. on Feb. 1, and is part of a series of events planned for visitors 21 and older.
The panel discussion is set for 8:30 p.m. in the auditorium.
Joining me on the panel will be Brian “Buck” Berlin, Michael Cross, Jeff Provine and T. Steven Handy and host Clint Stone.
Berlin, the owner of New World Comics, 6219 N Meridian Ave., is also the organizer of the New World Comic Con and the host of numerous “Superhero School” events at his store and elsewhere. Cross is creator of the “Okie Geek” podcast and the morning voice on KOSU. Provine is the publisher of “Okie Comics” and the author of several books.
Handy, a 26-year veteran of the U.S. Air Force who served in Operation Desert Storm, is the panel’s science expert.
Other events that are part of Cosmic Con will will allow guests a chance to interact with “radioactive” arachnids, test phaser skills, explore magnetism and electricity, manipulate metal, make cosplay masks, experience live science demonstrations, and more. “Tales of a Time Traveler,” narrated by David Tennant, will be shown in the newly updated Kirkpatrick Planetarium.
