On the fourth Sunday of the month we’ll meet at the shop after hours to discuss our book club selection of the month, Bitch Planet, Vol. 1: Extraordinary Machine.
Eisner Award-winning writer Kelly Sue DeConnick (Captain Marvel, Pretty Deadly) and Valentine DeLandro present the premiere volume of BITCH PLANET, their critically acclaimed and deliciously vicious sci-fi satire. Think Margaret Atwood meets Inglourious Basterds.
The book is available at Destiny City Comics and will be offered at a special discount during the month of August.
One of Time Magazine’s 100 Greatest Novels, Watchmen changed superhero stories forever in this mind-bending murder mystery that will have you questioning authority forever. Pick up the book at the shop today and we’ll discuss it 7pm at the shop on the fourth Sunday of May.
