Comic Book Club November Meeting: V For Vendetta

So, we had originally decided to read and discuss Mike Allred’s Red Rocket 7 for our November meetup, however once I was assembling the Comic Book Club calendar I realized it would be held on November 5th. Y’know, “the fifth of November.” So naturally, we had to switch it up to Alan Moore and David Lloyd’s classic series V For Vendetta, which led to some other rescheduling. So, check out our dates for the next few months below the video.

A reminder that Comic Book Club meetings are held at the shop at our usual meeting time of 6 PM, and all meetings are BYOB.  We also highly encourage you to pre-order a given reading up to two weeks before the discussion date, and a reminder that we offer 15% off a given month’s title in the shop.

Below are our next three months of readings, and a photo and summary of November’s main title.

Sunday, November 5: V For Vendetta
Sunday, December 3: Klaus
Sunday, January 7: Red Rocket 7

A powerful story about loss of freedom and individuality, V FOR VENDETTA takes place in a totalitarian England following a devastating war that changed the face of the planet. In a world without political freedom, personal freedom and precious little faith in anything comes a mysterious man in a white porcelain mask who fights political oppressors through terrorism and seemingly absurd acts. It’s a gripping tale of the blurred lines between ideological good and evil.
