Bring Your Own Beasties
Pictured here at San Diego Comic Con is Eisner nominated graphic novel author, Barry Deutsch! His graphic novel. Hereville (for ages 8+) was nominated for the Eisner award and features an Orthodox  Jewish girl who slays trolls. No big deal. This rollicking adventure story also comes recommended by the "Kids Are Alright" Panelists ("myth on paper," said Gene Luen Yang, author of American Born Chinese) at Wondercon.

It's true. Because you're not a real nerd until you've gone to the Nerd Headquarters, i.e. San Diego Comic Con. So Not Your Mother's Book Club braved the crowds of over 100,000 people (only 99,000 of which had camped out for the Twilight panel) and even though your faithful NYMBC representative never got dressed up as a minotaur or a storm trooper, it's safe to say nerddom was fully embraced.
