Graphic Novel Book Club: Sheriff of Babylon

Content's Graphic Novel Book Club continues in September with SHERIFF OF BABYLON, VOL 1: BANG. BANG. BANG., and we hope you'll join us!

"Baghdad, 2003. The reign of Saddam Hussein is over. The Americans are in command, and no one is in control. Former cop turned military contractor Christopher Henry knows that better than anyone. He’s in the country to train up a new Iraqi police force, and one of his recruits has just been murdered. With civil authority in tatters and dead bodies clogging the streets, Chris is the only person in the Green Zone with any interest in finding out who killed him—and why. Inspired by his real-life experiences as a CIA operations officer in Iraq, writer Tom King teams with artist Mitch Gerads to deliver a wartime crime thriller like no other."

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. In our first few selections, we'll check out a diversity of titles that show the range of the art form while giving us plenty to talk about. Selections will be for mature readers, and will be available at our usual 10% book club discount! No need to sign up, just join us!
