So, we have a pretty cool set up for the February meeting of the Ash Ave Comic Book Club, we’ll be discussing volumes 1+2 of the critically acclaimed Iraq war series Sheriff of Babylon, joining us is series co-creator and artist Mitch Gerads. Mitch put it out there on twitter a couple of weeks back, attaching a pic of volume one (“Bang. Bang. Bang.”) and volume two (“Pow. Pow. Pow.”), we have volume one in stock at the shop now and are taking pre-orders for volume two (release date is 2/1/17).
