Our February Comic Book Club meeting is on February 9 (not the first Sunday this month as we accommodate a certain “Super” event), and we will be discussing Chip Zdarsky and Mark Bagley’s decades spanning miniseries Spider-Man Life Story, and in March we will be discussing the legendary Frank Miller series Batman The Dark Knight.
Our meetings begin at 6 PM, and we recommend attendees BYOB (be it beer, beverage, or brisket). Our reading group selections are available in the shop, so drop by to purchase a copy of Spider-Man Life Story for our February meetup. Listed below are our next two months of readings, and a photo and summary of the February selection:
