Nerd Herd

Nerd Herd

by Christian Kiley

Herman, Louis, and Francene are fanatical fans of Gallactica! – the hottest show on television. They watch every episode, quote lines from the show, and predict future episodes. When they learn that Gallactica will be at the upcoming Comic Book Palooza, Herman suggests they attend. It will be the best quest three friends could ever undertake!

But these three friends aren’t exactly being honest with one another. Herman loves Gallactia… but Francene is more in love with Herman, and Louis is head-over-heels for Francene. Will the truth come out? Sometimes the quest you want becomes the quest you need.

Join this “nerd herd” as they go on the adventure of their lives. A funny and endearing look at love, dreams, slushes, and the unexpected twists and turns that life takes when you’re saving the universe.
