When We Were Trekkies #9 - “Reaching Critical Mass”

A continuing graphic memoir of teenage cosplayers in the 1970s

With three Star Trek conventions in one month to choose from, Jonny and his pals decide to put their efforts into one last show-stopping costume entry. On one hand, they have nothing to lose, and on the other, the competition provides an opportunity—and a necessary balm—to a friend in need.

When We Were Trekkies is created by Joe Sikoryak, who attended some of the first conventions of the 1970s. His memoir blends awkward adolescence, nerdish spectacle and a generous spirit of adventure. While certain details are fictionalized, the costumes, festivities and unbridled passions are completely authentic.
