Wednesday, July 11th from 6:30 to 7:30 pm
The Emerald City Book Club normally meets the FIRST WEDNESDAY of the month from 6:30-7:30 pm, in “The Hub” at the center of the store, to chat about the featured book (we’re meeting the SECOND WEDNESDAY in July due to Independence Day). 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 the next meeting will be announced at the end of the current ECBC meeting. 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…
by Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons
Considered one of the greatest graphic novels in the history of the medium, the Hugo Award-winning story chronicles the fall from grace of a group of superheroes plagued by all-too-human failings. In 1986, author Alan Moore used the story as a means to reflect contemporary anxieties and to deconstruct and parody the superhero concept, and did so in a way that still resonates with readers today.
