Trans or Cis Ladies & GenderQueer People age 16+ are welcome
to join us for a private hang-out in the Danger Room!
7pm Meet, Mingle, & News – 8:30pm Book Club – 9:30pm Shopping Time!
It’s a Captain Carol-fest! Thursday 4.21.16
Before Bitch Planet, KELLY SUE DECONNICK brought us Carol Danvers: the stubborn, near-invincible Avenger formerly known as Ms. Marvel (among many, many others) in a new design and the name of her mentor: Captain Marvel.
We planned to read the first collection of the first Captain Marvel series (there are three different ongoing series, plus a Secret Wars mini!) but comics is a frustratingly FICKLE JERK of an industry, so it’s now between printings.
If you’ve already purchased the first volume of the 2012 series,
In Pursuit of Flight, come prepared to discuss it!
If you haven’t picked up April’s book yet,
we have the first volume of the 2014 series, Higher, Further, Faster, More.
We’ll share observations about motivations, values, themes of the book we’ve read; discuss the significance of the character and her evolution; examine the career of Kelly Sue DeConnick and her relationships with her collaborators.
Form up, Carol Corps! We roll with the punches!
