Holy Comic-Con at the Inn, Batman!
The Children’s Inn at NIH hosted Comic-Con, a celebration of comic books, on Feb. 28. Inn residents and their families met some of their favorite comic book characters, created superhero-themed art projects and watched a live musical performance of video game music. Superheroes from the Foundation 4 Heroes and Star Wars characters from the 501st Legion (a Star Wars costuming organization) mingled with residents and their families and posed for photos. The Leidos Scoop ice cream truck stopped by to provide sweet treats—even caped crusaders get hungry. The Washington Metropolitan Gamer Symphony Orchestra capped off the event with a performance of music from popular video games. The orchestra is conducted by Nigel Horne of NLM’s Information Resources Branch.
