Once upon a time, in a magical place known as “Lone Star Comics”, two members of the Reckon Crew went to the Geek Prom. Where else could they hear a beautiful girl talk about “rolling for initiative” on Valentine’s Day? Lacking Timothy Danger and his impressive drinking skills, Gritskrieg and Crutchboy had to “work” twice as hard to make sure no beer was left orphaned from its brethren. It’s a rough life being a member of the Reckon Crew.
Lone Star Comics, our generous host for the evening, provided the locale and the booze as well as several very nice items that were presented via a raffle drawing. And as the smell of love (think the aroma of beer and graphic novels) filled the air, we admired some very lovely ladies and listened to the musical stylings of Mr. Pixie and, later in the evening, the Dirty Birds, both of whom were very talented and set the perfect musical backdrop for a Geek Prom.
It was a magical night, if by magical you would say ”I cast Fireball at the goblins”, and the Geeks came out for the music, the company, the beer, and most importantly, to donate to the Hero Initiative. Connections were made, new friends were met, and the food and beverages were consumed. And no paper products were damaged during the party which I consider an impressive feat. Especially with my talent for spillage.
We’d like to take this opportunity to thank our gracious host, Lone Star Comics, for putting this shindig together. It’s a pity Valentine’s Day only comes once a year because this is the kind of lovey dovey event the Reckon Crew can actually support… The kind with booze, a store full of comics and action figures, and some very good looking women.
Next year we might even bring dates.
