Picture this: Back in the day, Alibi produced an annual comic-centric issue. It featured columns illustrated by many of the talented cartoonists with which we’ve worked. This was labor-intensive, time-consuming and really hard to do on a deadline. The result, however,was some of our favorite copy.

Culture Shock

By Summer Olsson

Bubonicon, Steampunk Style

A totally killer schedule is in place for Albuquerque’s annual, homegrown festival of science fiction and fantasy. The theme of this year’s convention is steampunk, which we at the Alibi are crazy about [Feature, “Full Steam Ahead,” July 21-27]. There’s a costume contest on Saturday night, a discussion on “Steampunk Definitions: More Than Victorian Clothing,” a make-and-take workshop with gears, and vendors selling corsets, cloaks and all the other bits and bobs to fulfill your mechanical-wonder needs.

Tiny reviews of local creations

By Summer Olsson
Sweet 7000's Baaadassss Comics. This is the full, funky name of 7000 BC, a local nonprofit that supports New Mexican comic book writers and artists. Yes, the moniker is partially inspired by the independent nature of that one Melvin Van Peebles film you just thought about, but it also references the elevation of Santa Fe, where the group was founded. The comic book lovers on the Alibi editorial staff reviewed a handful of new 7000 BC offerings.
