By donating to Intervention you will enable us to bring more of your favorite comics and other online creators to the con! Enablers also get special advance news as well as first opportunity to sign up for limited events or workshops at the con.
Educational panels and workshops taught by the pros. Supporting local and indie artists who use the internet to DIY reach out to their audience. Gaming, Fan Suggested Geekery, Dance Parties, Movies, Arcade Gaming, and unique performances.
Intervention will have a variety of events and features. The vendors’ area, artists’ alley, and panels are of course obvious programming examples.
We will also have dancing.
Whether your dancing resembles the second coming of John Travolta or a broken marionette puppet, you are still more than welcome to attend the dances. Your admission to the con ensures entry.
If you are 21+ (and IDs WILL be checked), both dances will feature a cash bar. Under Montgomery County, Maryland law, last call is at 1:30. If you choose not to go to the dance but still wish to relax with a cocktail, the hotel’s lobby bar is open until midnight each day.
The silver vehicle that piloted Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd to and from 1950s Los Angeles, the Wild West, and other locales has emerged at Intervention!
Owned by Joey (Falcon Volt), the 1982 DeLorean will be parked outside of the hotel’s front entrance during con hours. It comes complete with “88 MPH” license plates and even a flux capacitor. While the car you will see was itself not used in the actual movie trilogy, it was featured in a video produced by That Guy With the Glasses.
You are more than welcome to take photos of, with, or inside the car, free of charge. It’s asked that you try not to touch the stainless steel panels. Hopping inside and taking off at a high rate of speed down Rockville Pike is not permitted at all.
Definitely come by to see the car while we still have a need for roads.
Intervention information and schedules are now online!

Intervention is very happy to host two showings of the new film “Lloyd The Conqueror” in our Video room this year. It stars a wide array of talent (especially with Brian Posehn being “The White Wizard”, along with Mike Smith, Evan Willams and Harland Williams), and has won many awards so far, with some of the most notable being the AMPIA awards for Best Dramatic Feature and Best Original Score.
This will be the your first Northeast opportunity to see the film before it’s general release to theaters in 2013.
Here’s a description of the film:
Three male college students, must do battle against Derek the Unholy, a dark wizard who is determined to hold onto his title as champion of the Larpers.
Lloyd the Conqueror takes place in the eccentric and comedic world of Live Action Role Playing (LARPing). For those of you who are not familiar with this activity think of the game elements of Dungeons and Dragons, take it out of your basement and into the real world, adding homemade costumes and foam weapons. Throw it all into a real-live battle and only then can you begin to grasp the uncanny world of the LARP.
And check out the trailer:
The film will be showing on Friday the 21st at 9pm, and Saturday the 22nd at 7pm in our Video room.
