Five Must-Attend Lectures in Phoenix This February

You. You think you're sooo smart. Know what, genius? So are a bunch of other folks in town. Take in their theories as they pontificate on such subjects as superheros, hiking, and UFOs this February. It's mind-expanding stuff, and it needs to be penciled in the ol' planner.

"Superheros in Narrative: Comics Come of Age in Print and Film" @ ASU Polytechnic Considering we blocked out a recent Tuesday and devoted it entirely to the superheros edition of PBS' Pioneers of Television, we're not in any place to call Teague von Bohlen a nerd. This being stated, the descriptor's fairly fitting, given the novelist and UC Denver creative writing assistant professor will discuss comic book characters in an upcoming lecture.
