The comic anthologies The Secret Loves of Geeks and The Secret Loves of Geek Girls from Hope Nicholson are wonderful looks into relationships and romance among fans of all things geek. This May, Nicholson is back to tackle another facet of geek culture–comic book conventions–in Pros and (Comic) Cons. The anthology from Dark Horse Comics contains contributions from comic book industry professionals and features prose and short stories about their experiences at conventions over the years and looks to be as probing, entertaining look at geek culture as Nicholson’s previous anthologies.
That’s why we’re proud to be able to offer this EXCLUSIVE preview of Amy Chu’s “Falling in Love,” illustrated by Louie Chin. Check out the pages below for more!
