Sunday, February 6th from 4:30 to 5:30pm
The Emerald City Book Club meets the FIRST SUNDAY of the month from 4:30 to 5:30pm in our Events Room, to chat about the featured book. We sometimes begin the meetings with a “Comics 101” introduction 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).
You can purchase the discounted book in-store or online:
This month’s featured book is…
DARK HORSE COMICS
(W) Juan Díaz Canales (A/CA) Juanjo Guarnido
Private investigator John Blacksad is up to his feline ears in mystery, digging into the backstories behind murders, child abductions, and nuclear secrets. Guarnido’s sumptuously painted pages and rich cinematic style bring the world of 1950s America to vibrant life, with Canales weaving in fascinating tales of conspiracy, racial tension, and the “red scare” Communist witch hunts of the time. Guarnido reinvents anthropomorphism in these pages, and industry colleagues no less than Will Eisner, Jim Steranko, and Tim Sale are fans!
