Paris à la Geek with Suzy Dias & Miguel Guerra
The place to get your geek on!
Paris à la Geek is the one and only web series that combines geek culture, comics and Paris. It’s a ménage à trois of madcap fun!
Paris à la Geek is a web series for people who love something. We’re not talking about what you do for a living. It’s that thing that sparks passion in your soul and puts a spring in your step. That thing that makes you roll up your sleeves and get busy! Miguel Guerra and Suzy Dias explore all things comics and geek related and go one step beyond to make you feel like you’re here with us in Paris.
What do Geeks do in Paris?
We like to travel and we move…a lot. We went from Toronto to New York to Paris (which we now call home) and are eager to explore the mainstream and underground European comics scene.
We’ll take you to all of the usual tourist hots pots, as well as explore hidden attractions and unusual things to do. From the Catacombes de Paris, the House of Nicolas Flamel (the famous alchemist), Montparnasse and Père Lachaise cemeteries, the Museum of Vampires and Legendary Creatures, and many more weird locations.
The show that’s à la carte
Along with visiting fun and freaky places, we’re also big on doing things for ourselves. DIY rules! We create our own comics, make all types of art, produce cartoons, have fun with videos and we’re part of a fantastic, ever growing comics community. We’ll hit conventions, festivals, comic shops, toy stores and anything we find along the way.

Did someone say crochet?
Suzy is in geek love with crochet. She makes fun hats, scarves and mittens, but her pièce de résistance is toys. She suffers from amigurumi madness! Suzy shares her latest work and free patterns, as well as creative projects from other people. She may even take your suggestions!

Meet the Hosts
Suzy Dias and Miguel Guerra are co-founders of 7 Robots, where they create and publish their own comics and books. They co-host Paris à la Geek, the one and only web series that combines geek culture, comics and Paris. Now, let’s get to know a little bit about each of them…
By day, Suzy is an business English teacher, but after hours she’s a devotee at the church of pencraft, where she spends countless hours forging plots and writing comics. She’s also the resident writer, co-letterer, webmaster and video producer.
With a penchant for crochet, Suzy also creates quirky amigurumi toys, hats, scarves and anything slightly weird. Suzy’s Canadian with roots extending from Portugal to Brazil, France and the U.S.
On a typical day, Miguel Guerra gives historical tours of Paris. By night you’ll find him hunched over his drawing desk, squinting into the red-eyed hours of the morning, basking in the chaos of creating comics, paintings and illustrations. Miguel’s American with African American, Cherokee and Spanish roots.
