It’s Sequart’s Third Annual Sci-Fi Week!

Star Wars: The Force Awakens posterCoinciding with this week’s release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Sequart is celebrating its third annual Sci-Fi Week!

All this week, we’ll be running content focusing on sci-fi comics and popular culture.

Sequart ran its first Sci-Fi Week in May 2013, timed to the release of Star Trek into Darkness. Our second Sci-Fi Week ran in November 2014, timed to the release of Interstellar.

Sequart’s love of science fiction extends to its book division. We recently published a book on Star Wars, and we’ve previously published a book on Star Treka book on Planet of the Apes, and a book on Jack Kirby’s 2001 comics! We’ve also announced two more books of Star Wars analysis and a second Planet of the Apes volume, with more to come.

Although Sci-Fi Week is our only annual themed week, in the past Sequart occasionally ran other themed weeks. We used them as a way to celebrate popular subjects, to fill holes in comics and pop-culture criticism, and to serial in-depth criticism over a single week instead of longer periods. You can think of these themed weeks as miniature conventions or conferences. Overall, Sci-Fi Week 3 is our 14th themed week. Past themed weeks include:
