There are so many awesome things happening with GeekGirlCon right now that I’m afraid I’m going to forget stuff.  Just to be safe, I figured I’ll just include the massive banner advertising the upcoming Benefit Concert going down in Seattle next month.  The best part of this concert? You get FIVE acts for just $7 OR $6 with a donation of 2 non-perishable food items for the Ballard Food Bank! (Cash only at the door). Information on buying tickets for the event will be listed at the bottom of this post.

ALSO super exciting is the fact that they have announced two special guests: Bonnie Burton and Trina Robbins!

In case you don’t follow the fabulous Bonnie Burton (@bonniegrrl) on Twitter, she is an author, writing several Star Wars craft and art books, content for starwars.com, the official Star Wars Blog and is the brains behind the Star Wars twitter page!  Aside from her work with Star Wars, she has written the books “Girls Against Girls: Why We Are Mean to Each Other and How We Can Change” and “Never Threaten to Eat Your Co-Workers.”

Trina Robbins has been writing comics and books for over 30 years, and was one of the founding members of The Wimmen’s Comix Collective. She is the author of such books as The Great Women Superheroes,From Girls to Grrrlz: A History of Women’s Comics From Teens to ZinesThe Best of Nell Brinkley’s Cartoons from 1913-1940, and Wonder Woman: The Once and Future Story.

We’ll have more news coming in over the next few months but in the meantime, donate donate donate! It’s such an amazing cause and any small amount you can contribute will be greatly appreciated!
