More Doctor Who trivia — with prizes!

As our May meeting fell on Memorial Day weekend, we watched Doctor Who stories which featured soldiers. Instead of having a trivia contest, we chose to create one (below), inspired by our viewing theme.  Test your knowledge of Doctor Who, then email your answers to Six or more correct answers will win you a free emailed issue of our club newsletter, The Gallifrey Guardian. Winners can also pick an item from our trivia prize selection if they come to the June Anniversary Party (details on our website and Facebook page). Here’s a sampling of a few of our prize offerings, all genre, but not necessarily Doctor Who:

We also have six different character posters from The Crimes of Grindelwald (thanks to Bamf! Comics on Free Comic Book Day). Answers will be posted on the Answer Page of this blog in three weeks; be sure to submit your response before June 19 to be eligible for the newsletter and a prize.

Free Comic Book Day 2019

Well, we dropped Guns, Knives, and Other Things from our itinerary as they didn’t open on time. It gave us a little wiggle room in the schedule, though, so fellow Guardian member Ben and I added Coliseum of Comics at Fashion Square Mall to the list. We collected comics, put out flyers, bought a couple of items for the next auction, and took photos.  There were too many to fit them all in the Gallifrey Guardian article, so here’s a photo montage for this year:
