2017 is here (or near as I write) and with it comes a slate of reading group dates for the new year. We kick off January with volume one of Brian K Vaughn and Pia Guerra’s Hugo and Eisner award winning series Y The Last Man, comic book club attendees decided last year that Y will be our next long term reading project so we will read through the subsequent four volumes through May. In February we will read and discuss volume one and two of Tom King and Mitch Gerad’s critically acclaimed Vertigo series The Sheriff of Babylon, before continuing with volume two of Y The Last Man later in the month.
Also, selected readings of a given month are available for purchase at a 15% off discount at the shop. If you’re thirsty we recommend Bringing Your Own Beverage to the discussion group, and if you’re feeling really generous, please bring some to share. The same goes for food. Definitely for flank steak. Moving on…
Below is our schedule for January and February’s readings and a plot summary for Y: The Last Man vol 01 , our discussion groups begin at 6 PM.

It’s the saga of Yorick Brown – the only human survivor of a planet-wide plague that instantly kills every mammal possessing a Y chromosome who searches the world for his lost love and the answer to why he’s the last man on earth.
The 14th Installment of Untidy Secrets Storytelling. The theme this month is “Ode To My Family”. Storytellers interpret this theme in interesting and unexpected ways.
Storytellers This Month Are…
William T. Terrabley
This event is all ages and BYOB (though, some of the storytelling has adult themes). Ash Ave Comics has some chairs available at first come first serve basis but feel free to bring your own chair or stand.
Untidy Secrets’ goal is to encourage literature through alternative means (storytelling, small press, self publishing, zines, and more). If you’re a writer, bring your printed work to swap and connect with others. If you’re a storyteller come out and connect with other storytellers and writers.
