Comic Book Club November Meetings: My Boyfriend is a Bear + Transmet vols 7+8

And just like that we’re in the final stretch of 2018 and our Transmetropolitan discussion group, truly appropriate reading for these perilous times we find ourselves. Our main selection for November promises to be at least a little less cynical, on Sunday, November 4 we’re discussing Pamela Ribon and Cat Farris’ My Boyfriend is a Bear, and later in the month we’ll round out with Transmetropolitan volumes 7+8. All titles for a given month are either available in store or a request can be made to order that title, and a reminder that they’re 15% off that month as well.

Our meetings begin at 6 PM, and per usual we recommend attendees BYOB (be it beer, beverage, or BBQ).  Listed below are our next two months of readings, and a photo and summary of November’s main title:

Sunday, November 4: My Boyfriend is a Bear GN

Sunday, November 18: Transmetropolitan vols 7 and 8

Sunday, December 2: Batman White Knight

Sunday, December 9: Transmetropolitan vols 9 and 10


Bear meets girl.
Nora has bad luck with men. When she meets an (actual) bear on a hike in the Los Angeles hills, he turns out to be the best romantic partner she’s ever had! He’s considerate, he’s sweet, he takes care of her. But he’s a bear, and winning over her friends and family is difficult. Not to mention he has to hibernate all winter. Can true love conquer all?
