Sequart will be celebrating this week’s release of Chris Nolan’s Interstellar with a week of content focusing on sci-fi comics and popular culture.
This is Sequart’s second annual Sci-Fi Week. Sequart ran its first Sci-Fi Week in May 2013. This is the first time Sequart has repeated the subject of a themed week.
Sequart uses themed weeks as a way of celebrating popular subjects, filling holes in comics and pop-culture criticism, and serializing in-depth criticism over a single week instead of many weeks (or even months). You can think of them as miniature conventions or conferences.
Sci-Fi Week 2 is Sequart’s 12th themed week. Past themed weeks include:
