Spring has sprung and like clockwork the Ash Ave Comic Book Club will be meeting to discuss another entry in the wide world of comics. For our April get together we’ll be meeting Sunday, April 7 to discuss Warren Ellis’ and Stuart Immonen’s superhero comedy Nextwave: Agents of H.A.T.E., winner of three Eagle Awards, as well as being a pick for the Young Adult Library Services Association’s (YALSA) list for the Best Comics of 2007.
We had an excellent discussion in March of Mister Miracle with Mister Miracle artist Mitch Gerads, here’s a couple of photos from the event if you couldn’t attend.
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, so drop by to pick up the Nextwave collection or to preorder a copy of Beasts of Burden Animal Rites for our May meetup. Listed below are our next two months of readings, and a photo and summary of the April selection:
Sunday, April 7: Nextwave: Agents of H.A.T.E.
Sunday, May 5: Beasts of Burden: Animal Rites
The Highest Anti-Terrorism Effort, or H.A.T.E. (a subsidiary of the Beyond Corporation©) put NEXTWAVE together to fight Bizarre Weapons of Mass Destruction. When NEXTWAVE discovers that H.A.T.E. and Beyond© are terrorist cells themselves, and that the BWMDs were intended to kill them, they are less than pleased. In fact, they are rather angry. So they make things explode. Lots of things. Starring Monica Rambeau (formerly Captain Marvel and Photon), Aaron Stack (Machine Man), Tabitha Smith (X-Force’s Meltdown), monster-hunter Elsa Bloodstone and The Captain! If you like anything, you will LOVE NEXTWAVE! BOOM! This new collection also includes all the hilarious letters pages!
