We’ve come to our final Comic Book Club meetup of 2017, and we wrap up the year with Grant Morrison and Dan Mara’s “Santa Claus: Year One” tale Klaus. We’ve gone a few months without a secondary long form reading group, in 2017 we read the entirety of Y The Last Man and Alan Moore’s run on Swamp Thing, in 2018 the long form discussion will assuredly return. Our January meet up will discuss Mike Allred’s rock ‘n’ roll tribute Red Rocket 7, and February’s title will be selected at our December meet up.
We will be meeting on Sunday, December 3 at 6PM to discuss Klaus, and per usual we recommend BYOB (be it beer, beverage, or BBQ). Below are our next two months of readings, and a photo and summary of December’s main title: Sunday, December 3: Klaus Sunday, January 7: Red Rocket 7
* Klaus is “Santa Claus: Year One.”
* Award-winning author Grant Morrison (All-Star Superman, The Multiversity) and artist Dan Mora (Hexed) revamp, reinvent, and re-imagine a classic superhero for the 21st century, drawing on Santa’s roots in Viking lore and Siberian shamanism.
