Comic Book Club November Meeting: Hard Tomorrow

Post

Comments   |   Events, Reading Group

Ash Ave Comic Book Club’s November meeting will be a discussion of Eleanor Davis’ latest graphic novel Hard Tomorrow, released in early October by Drawn & Quarterly. We’ll be following this up with another critically acclaimed graphic novel, Jimmy Corrigan: The Smartest Kid on Earth by Chris Ware, which we will be discussing for our final meetup of 2019 in December.

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 Hard Tomorrow for our November meetup. Listed below are our next two months of readings, and a photo and summary of the October selection:

Sunday, November 3: The Hard Tomorrow 

Sunday, December 1: Jimmy Corrigan: The Smartest Kid on Earth

Hannah is a thirty-something wife, home-health worker, and antiwar activist. Her husband, Johnny, is a stay-at-home pothead working-or “working”-on building them a house before the winter chill sets in. They’re currently living and screwing in the back of a truck, hoping for a pregnancy, which seems like it will never come. Told with tenderness and care in an undefined near future, Eleanor Davis’s The Hard Tomorrow blazes unrestrained, as moments of human connection are doused in fear and threats.
