Our August meetings are coming up, first off is the multiple Eisner, Harvey, and Shuster award winning DC New Frontier by the late writer/artist Darwyn Cooke. The reading group chose to read DC New Frontier to honor the late creator after his untimely death in May of this year. Following DC New Frontier is our final meeting for the Sandman discussion group as we come together to discuss Sandman Endless Nights and Sandman Overture. Our longform reading group will be on hiatus for a few months, possibly picking back up in January to read the six volume collection of Alan Moore’s run on Swamp Thing. Stay tuned!

Darwyn Cooke’s acclaimed epic is back in a new title collecting the 6-issue miniseries plus JUSTICE LEAGUE: THE NEW FRONTIER SPECIAL #1! When Cold War paranoia outlawed the heroes of the Golden Age, stalwarts such as Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman continued to fight for truth and justice. But as the world hurtled toward an uncertain future, a new breed of hero would define the American Way!
The classic short story collection by Neil Gaiman and a host of internationally renowned artists is now available in a new trade paperback at DC’s standard trim size. Alternately haunting, bittersweet, erotic and nightmarish, the seven stories in this book-one for each of the Endless siblings, each illustrated by a different artist-reveal strange secrets and surprising truths about The Endless.
Twenty-five years after THE SANDMAN first changed the landscape of modern comics, Neil Gaiman’s legendary series is back in a deluxe hardcover edition! From the birth of a galaxy to the moment that Morpheus is captured, THE SANDMAN: OVERTURE features cameo appearances by fan-favorite characters such as the Corinthian, Merv Pumpkinhead and, of course, the Dream King’s siblings: Death, Desire, Despair, Delirium, Destruction and Destiny. This volume collects THE SANDMAN: OVERTURE #1-6 in its entirety, plus bonus material.
