The Lubbock Officers
Bio: Sam does a lot and then some more. A member of the Valkyries, a group of female comic book shop workers, she runs her store’s Ladies Night and a Facebook group for geeky women, is an advocate for equality and representation in comics and geek culture, and works to help foster the geek community in her town however she can. When she’s not helping with the local conventions in the area and not working her full time job, she is an urban fantasy writer and an artist with an affinity towards painting, illustrations, and comics (primarily about her boyfriend’s cat). She also does #Workcomics, small post-it note sized comics and drawings on her Instagram during the weekdays when she’s supposed to be working.
On the few days she has down time, she can be found surrounded by cats reading her stacks of comics, playing video games, watching horror movies, or reading her backlog of books that she swears she’s going to get through one day.

Bio: Alex is a Lubbock transplant who spent her formidable years in the North Dallas area. An awkward child, she turned to books and video games at an early age and allowed these passions to drive her to reach full-geek status as a (somewhat) adult. Alex runs around promoting geek culture and dreaming up her next Disney vacation. She is also a crafter extraordinaire with specialty in cross stitching and needle crafts.
When she’s not running around like a chicken with her head cut off, she’s enjoying time reading or with her partner and three fur babies– Watson, Rosie, and Peggy Carter.
Geeky Top 10: Star Wars, Disney, Doctor Who, Harry Potter, Harley Quinn, Deadpool, Sailor Moon, Iron Man, LEGO, Studio Ghibli
Brunch Drink: TEQUILA… sunrises.
Bio: Noel might just be the most colorful person you’ll ever meet – and we’re not just talking personality! With her multicolored hair and the ink that graces her skin (including the cutest-ever Christmas Groot and Pikachu), she sports quite the rainbow! She feels a kinship with utterly misunderstood villains (think Loki and Harley Quinn) and believes that when nothing seems right, one should go left! She can usually be found with a book in hand or playing some sort of game, whether tabletop, board, or video! She and her husband met through World of Warcraft nearly a decade ago and the two can still often be found in the wilds of Azeroth, slaying dragons together!
Geeky Top 10: World of Warcraft, The Sims, Transformers, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, My Little Pony, the Dark Hunters, Harry Potter, Wonder Woman, all things Disney, and gaming of all varieties!
Brunch Drink: Cran-Orange Sparkle Punch
Bio: Growing up Jennifer was always a bit “different” but now she’s truly embraced her geek side! After doing the usual meet a boy, get married and have a couple kiddos, she did what any reasonable grown up would do and opened up a tabletop game store with her husband. So now her days are filled with dice, cards and miniatures and she couldn’t be happier. She loves teaching new players her favorite games and seeing the gaming community in Lubbock grow. When she’s not up at the game store or chasing after her crazy kids, you can find her doing volunteer work with a local convention, trying to catch up on her favorite comics or staying up way too late binge watching her favorite shows. She also loves anything crafty and creative and her favorite fandoms give her plenty of inspiration for craft projects, costumes and even cookies!
Geeky Top 10: Only 10?! Well I’ll try… Marvel, Star Wars, Pokemon, Doctor Who, LOTR, Firefly, Harry Potter, Supernatural, Aliens, Disney…
Brunch Drink: Cream and Sugar, with Coffee
Bio: Nancy is fairly new to the wonderful world of the geeky. She’s always be a little unusual but never had trouble finding a “friend” within the pages of a book or getting personally invested in the characters of a movie. But when one of her kids hated reading (due to dyslexia), her family embarked on a new journey of reading through a variety of graphic novels and hard work in school was rewarded with tickets to nearby comic conventions. And the trail down the geeky rabbit hole continues-volunteering at conventions, participating in geeky events with the family, and hanging out playing D&D with her new geek friends and their families. She has even been able to incorporate the various fandoms into the classes she teaches at all levels (college/university, K-12), and into her research into resiliency and human development. Everyday she is thankful for her husband’s encouragement to take that first step into the geeky unknown.
Geeky Top 10: DICE!!!, D&D, Arcade video games, making cosplay, Vinyl POP, Stickers, Geeky TV (Firefly, Supernatural, teen superhero shows-think Flash, Supergirl, Smallville), almost anything SyFy, geeky movies especially Disney and classic monsters, and geeky tees
Brunch Drink: OJ…preferably with a boozy kick
Follow: I’m technologically “challenged” so I don’t have IG, Twitter, The Snapper, or any of the other cool social media stuff. You’ll just have to catch me at brunch!
