Our March meetings have come and gone, but were the product of good discussion and exchange of ideas on the comics we read! We’re kicking off April with Trillium, the second Jeff Lemire title to be selected by one of our reading group attendees, and follow that up with The Invisibles volume 3 in mid-month. For our April 3rd meeting, we will be discussing Jeff Lemire’s 2014 miniseries Trillium. We still have some copies of Trillium and The Invisibles vol 3 available for purchase, and as a reminder our current Reading Club titles are 20% off of the listed price.
And here’s our schedule for the next two months, and the reading groups meet at 6 PM at the shop.
Sunday, April 5th: Trillium
Sunday, April 19th: The Invisibles vol 3: Entropy in the UK
Sunday, May 3rd: Black Hole
Sunday, May 17th: The Invisibles vol 4: Bloody Hell in America + vol 5: Counting to None
If you’d like to join come on into the shop and sign up. The Club meets at the shop on the first Sunday of the month to discuss a previously selected graphic novel, and club members will also choose the next month’s reading after finishing the discussion. The club currently also meets on the third Sunday of the month to discuss The Invisibles, and these discussions have been my favorite so far. If you’ve missed the first two and would still like to come, don’t hesitate. Read the summaries below for more information on Trillium & The Invisibles volume 3.
The amazing eight-issue miniseries by award-winning writer/artist Jeff Lemire is collected in this mind-blowing new collection!
