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. Our third Sci-Fi Week ran in December 2015, timed to the release of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Our fourth Sci-Fi Week ran in December 2016, timed to the release of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
Sequart’s love of science fiction extends to its book division. We just published a book on the Star Wars expanded universe. We’ve also published books on Star Wars comics; on Star Wars movies and TV shows; on Star Trek comics; on Planet of the Apes comics; on Planet of the Apes comics, TV, and novels; and on Jack Kirby’s 2001 comics! We’ve also announced a book on Blade Runner, with more to come.
Although Sci-Fi Week is our only annual themed week, Sequart occasionally runs other themed weeks. Since 2013, Sequart has used occasional themed weeks to celebrate popular subjects, to fill holes in comics and pop-culture criticism, and to serialize in-depth criticism over a single week instead of longer periods. We like to think of these themed weeks as miniature conventions or conferences. Overall, Sci-Fi Week 5 is our 17th themed week. Past themed weeks include:
