Did you read comics as a kid? I did, and I still enjoy them! Through art, speech bubbles, and other visual cues, comics provide a unique form of storytelling that reflects who we are in hilarious, heartfelt, and sometimes cynical ways.

In recent years, comics have jumped from page to film and television, and are more popular than ever! Join us as we enjoy the classics and explore newer forms of comic art, such as graphic novels and manga. At each meeting, we will watch a short presentation, many from Comic-Con 2020 and 2021, then open up for discussion. Participants are encouraged to suggest their favorite comic or graphic novel for future meetings. See you in the funny pages!
