Cost: Free

Dragons and their allies are threatening the Sword Coast and the North, but why now, and to what end? Tiamat, the queen of evil dragons, has languished in the Nine Hells for millennia. The evil Cult of the Dragon believes that the time of her return is at hand. To accomplish its goal, the cult needs five ancient dragon masks and the support of evil dragons everywhere. Meanwhile, evil dragons in cahoots with the cult seek to amass a treasure hoard worthy of their dark queen by stealing money from cities, caravans, good dragons, merchant ships, and other sources.

The situation is dire. However, the Sword Coast is far from defenseless. Powerful factions are ready to rise up and put an end to the tyranny of dragons. Adventurers throughout the Realms must join forces to face Tiamat, destroy the Cult of the Dragon, and prevent the rise of a new dragon empire. In their hands, the future lies.

Please bring dice and a pencil or buy them at BOSCO'S. A Players Handbook would be good too, especially for spellcasters, but is not required.

Intergalactic Nemesis: A Live Action Graphic Novel Comes to Life
Where: Alaska Center for the Performing Arts, Discovery Theatre
When: January 23-24, 2015 at 7:30 pm
This is presented by the Anchorage Concert Association. It looks like a great example of the integration of comics into other art forms. Seems natural to us BOSCO'S types, but like we've been saying for 30 years, it's about time the rest of the world catch up.
The show is sort of a giant comic book, with panels projected on a large screen as live actors read the script in a fusion of pop art and radio theater.
Watch a comic book become real right before your eyes! The Intergalactic Nemesis is a truly unique theatrical experience you won't want to miss. This hilarious, sci-fi thriller is set in the 1930's and features three actors voicing dozens of different characters. A pianist plays a cinematic score while more than 1,000 high-resolution comic book panels illustrate the plot on an enormous movie screen. This multimedia, retro extravaganza has been featured on NPR, PBS and Conan O'Brien.






In May of 1984 a comic loving hippie from Fairbanks rolled down the highway in a beat up Dodge van filled with comics!

He found a parking spot in Spenard and staked his claim!
