Comic Book Club July Meeting: Marshal Law

It’s July, which means San Diego Comic Con, the inevitable comic based summer blockbuster film(s), and of course, the Ash Ave Comic Book Club will meet for our monthly discussion of comics. For July we’re discussing Pat Mills and Kevin O’Neill’s Marshal Law, specifically the deluxe edition collection released by DC Comics a few years back. Unfortunately this title went out of stock at our distributor after we selected it, and is now completely out of print, so we do not have any copies in the shop available for purchase. This is not the case for our August selection, Marvel’s 2007 Eternals mini-series by Neil Gaiman and John Romita Jr., we have copies available in the shop now for purchase.

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 (or preorder if we’re temporarily out of stock) a copy of Eternals by Neil Gaiman TP for our August meetup. Listed below are our next two months of readings, and a photo and summary of the July selection:
