We’re discussing a classic of modern comics this month at the Ash Ave Comic Book Club, for our March meeting we will be talking about Frank Miller, Klaus Janson, and Lynn Varley’s Batman: The Dark Knight Returns. Along with Watchmen, this four issue series from 1986 has made an indelible impression on comics and culture at large, Miller showed us the dark future awaiting the Dark Knight. We will be following up the Dark Knight Returns with the 2002 followup the Dark Knight Strikes Again on Sunday March 22, and in April we will be discussing Saladin Ahmed and Christian Ward’s Black Bolt miniseries.
Our meetings begin at 6 PM, and we recommend attendees BYOB (be it beer, beverage, or brownies). Our reading group selections are available in the shop, so drop by to purchase a copy of Batman: Dark Knight Returns or Batman: Dark Knight Strikes Again for our March meetups.
