Well, we made it to our third anniversary, and the beginning of our fourth year of the Ash Ave Comic Book Club, and we’re celebrating with one of the greatest Batman, no, one of the greatest comic stories ever told. We begin September with Frank Miller and David Mazzucchelli’s classic Batman Year One, and round out the month with volume five of Alan Moore’s legendary Saga of the Swamp Thing. We will be meeting on the second Sunday of September (to spare every one the Labor Day weekend meet up), and again on Sunday September 17, as always we’ll meet at the shop at 6 PM. Check out below for a recap of our third year reads, as well as information for our September and October discussion groups.
