EC BOOK CLUB: RAT QUEENS – SASS & SORCERY
Tuesday, May 2nd from 7pm to 8pm
The Emerald City Book Club meets the FIRST TUESDAY of the month from 7-8pm to chat about the featured book. We usually begin each meeting with a “Comics 101” slideshow giving some historical, artistic, or social background on the book, and then we dive right into discussion!
The book selection for next meeting will be announced at the end of the current meeting, and that book is 20% OFF for the month leading up to its ECBC meeting! (The discount will be calculated at the register, and does not combine with any other discounts or programs).
This month’s featured book is…
RAT QUEENS – SASS & SORCERY
(W) Kurtis J. Wiebe (A) Roc Upchurch (CA) Fiona Staples
Who are the Rat Queens? A pack of booze-guzzling, death-dealing battle maidens-for-hire, and they’re in the business of killing all god’s creatures for profit. It’s also a darkly comedic sass-and-sorcery series starring Hannah the Rockabilly Elven Mage, Violet the Hipster Dwarven Fighter, Dee the Atheist Human Cleric, and Betty the Hippy Smidgen Thief. This modern spin on an old school genre is a violent monster-killing epic that is like Buffy meets Tank Girl in a Lord of the Rings world on crack! Collecting the first 5 issues of the sold out hit series!
