Content Graphic Novel Club: Saga, Vol. 1 & 2
Content's Graphic Novel Book Club continues in October with SAGA, VOL 1 & 2 by Brian K. Vaughan and Fiona Staples. Vaughan and Staples’ Saga has won multiple Eisner awards for best new and best continuing series, and it’s no surprise (want to see how much it's won?!?). This one's not to be missed, since this is one of the best books on the stands-- we hope you'll join us!
"This smash hit is a powerhouse: intergalactic intrigue, truly alien aliens, multifaceted characters, and a universe full of lush environments all wrapped around a compellingly told story of forbidden love in wartime. recently soldiers from opposite sides of a massive intergalactic war, moth-winged Alana and ram-horned Marko simply want peace and anonymity to raise their daughter (an abomination to the powers that be) away from conflict and hatred. Vaughan has a peculiarly wonderful world at his fingertips, and he’s setting himself up for something big, but it’s Staples’ stunning and otherworldly art that makes Saga such a thrilling read. These two are seriously upping the ante for comics. Fans will be eager to pick this up, and intrigued new readers won’t be far behind."
Hosted by our very own David Wolff, this group is fun and accessible for adventurous readers who are curious about the genre, and interesting for even the most die-hard fans. Since graphic novels are quick and engrossing, this could be a great book club for you if your reading time is limited, or are looking to expand your horizons. We read a diversity of titles that show the range of the art form while giving us plenty to talk about. Selections are for mature readers, and are available at our usual 10% book club discount!
