EC BOOK CLUB: SUPERMAN – RED SON
Tuesday, June 6th 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 featured book 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).
The selection for Tuesday, June 6th is…
SUPERMAN RED SON
(W) Mark Millar (A) Dave Johnson & Various (CA) Dave Johnson
Writer Mark Millar describes the premise: “Instead of landing in Kansas as a child, I’ve decided to explore what could have happened if his rocket would have landed on a collective farm in the Soviet Union. Instead of working for the Daily Planet, he’ll be a reporter for Pravda. There’s a reversal of the current situation, this time it’s the U.S.A. that’s splitting up with Georgia and Louisiana demanding independence — tanks rolling through the streets of New Orleans. I’ll be including a whole bunch of DC characters, like Batman and Green Lantern — who you’ll see in a new light.”
