Mensa meeting theme: superheroes

Metropolitan Washington Mensa is holding its annual regional gathering this weekend in Herndon, Va., and the theme is superheroes! Festivities kick off Friday, May 17, with a presentation by Matt and Carol Dembicki on District Comics: An Uncoventional History of Washington, D,C., followed by Jamie Noguchi, who will talk about Asian-American representation in superhero comics. Saturday will feature caricaturist Nick Sider, a presentation by Georgia Higley on the Library of Congress' comics collection, and keynote by Ryan Davidson, one of the lawyers behind the book The Law of Superheroes and the blog Law and the Multiverse. (The event is open only to Mensa members and not to the public.)
