It’s a little lonely not doing our twice monthly Comic Book Clubs (reading a stand alone title, and a long read, as we’ve done almost monthly for the last few years now), but it’s a brief return to form for February as we’ll be discussing the first two volumes of Marjorie Liu and Sana Takeda’s multiple Eisner and Hugo award winning series Monstress. In March we’ll be reading another multiple Eisner award winner with Tom King and Mitch Gerads’ Mister Miracle miniseries.
Our meetings begin at 6 PM, and per usual we recommend attendees BYOB (be it beer, beverage, or BBQ). Our reading group selections are available in the shop for 15% off, so drop by to pick up the Monstress volumes or to preorder the Mister Miracle collection. Listed below are our next two months of readings, and a photo and summary of the February selection:
Sunday, February 10: Monstress vols 1 + 2
Sunday, March 10: Mister Miracle TP
Set in an alternate matriarchal 1900’s Asia, in a richly imagined world of art deco-inflected steampunk, MONSTRESS tells the story of a teenage girl who is struggling to survive the trauma of war, and who shares a mysterious psychic link with a monster of tremendous power, a connection that will transform them both.
