Get together with a group of people who (like you) read comics and want to talk about them. Each month we discuss a different graphic novel. It is a great way to expose yourself to a comic that you might not have tried if were not for that friend who suggested it. The reading selections are nominated by group members and chosen by the group, and all of us are (yes) friends having met at the group. This month we are reading:
In this tale by South African author Beukes and artist Miranda, Rapunzel lives one of the most regimented lives in Fabletown, forced to maintain her rapidly growing hair lest her storybook origins be revealed. But when word of her long-lost children surfaces, she travels to Japan with her current beau (and hairdresser) to find them - and a former lover.
Our selection for the next month is
ALL HAIL GOD MONEY! From JONATHAN HICKMAN (EAST OF WEST, Secret Wars, Avengers) and TOMM COKER (UNDYING LOVE) comes a new crypto-noir series about the power of dirty, filthy money... and exactly what kind of people you can buy with it. THE BLACK MONDAY MURDERS is classic occultism where the various schools of magic are actually clandestine banking cartels who control all of society: a secret world where vampire Russian oligarchs, Black popes, enchanted American aristocrats, and hitmen from the International Monetary Fund work together to keep ALL OF US in our proper place.
Fred is an independent comic artist living in Oakland. He has self-published a number of great comics over the years. He recently dropped these off at the store.

Alan Moore's Lovecraftian PROVIDENCE is one of our better selling titles at the Escapist. Those of you who read it know how deeply mysterious and involving it is. Each issue takes me about an hour to read. If you don't think you're spending enough time on it, try out this link to a blog with annotations for each comic. Find out where the building on this cover of issue #1 is and why it's important. Warning! Read each issue first before reading the blog about it. There are spoilers.

This is directed to the contestants of our "When Does Wolverine Come Back to Life" contest. We still have the ballots and the prize but, according to the contest definition of what qualifies as back to life (actual Logan, no clone, no fauverines), he is still DEAD. All New Wolverine is a woman ,Old Man Logan came from another universe, and Secret Wars solved nothing. Keep waiting... All will be revealed.. maybe.Back to top
