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:
The story of two teenagers, a mixtape, a stolen car, a fully loaded .45, strange abilities, dead drug dealers, and their money. A dark and modern story about getting lost and finding yourself on the backroads of America. It's like X-men meet Jim Thompson's Getaway
Our selection for the next month is
Everyone faces uncertainty at some point in their lives. Even a brilliant surgeon like Kenzo Tenma is no exception. But there's no way he could have known that his decision to stop chasing professional success and instead concentrate on his oath to save peoples' lives would result in the birth of an abomination. The questions of good and evil now take on a terrifyingly real dimension.
Years later, in Germany during the tumultuous post-reunification period, middle-aged childless couples are being killed one after another.
The serial killer's identity is known.
The reasons why he kills are not.
In this Japanese manga classic, Dr. Tenma sets out on a journey to find the killer's twin sister, who may hold some clues to solving the enigma of the "Monster."

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
