I Killed Adolf Hitler book club discussion

I Killed Adolf Hitler book club discussion

On the fourth Sunday of the month we’ll meet at the shop after hours to discuss our book club selection, I Killed Adolf Hitler.
 
This 2008 Eisner and Harvey Award-winning classic, unavailable since 2014, is back in print in a newly designed edition! In this full-color graphic novel, Jason posits a strange, violent world in which contract killers can be hired to rub out pests — be they dysfunctional relatives, abusive co-workers, loud neighbors, or just annoyances in general — and as you might imagine, their services are in heavy demand. One such killer is given the unique job of traveling back in time to kill Adolf Hitler in 1939 … but things go spectacularly wrong.
 
The book is available at Destiny City Comics and will be offered at a special discount during the month of September.
