Brompton Library Graphic Novel Reading Group
Monday 12th March
6:30pm – 7:30pm

The group this time will also be hosted by Tari from the London Graphic Novel Network, if you need to get in touch: tari@londongraphicnovelnetwork.com

*we will be taking part in Watchmen Club—a 6 week interactive book club where we read and discuss 2 issues of the Watchmen graphic novel, more info can be found on Comic Book Girl 19’s YouTube channel:

In an alternate world where the mere presence of American superheroes changed history, the US won the Vietnam War, Nixon is still president, and the cold war is in full effect. Watchmen begins as a murder-mystery, but soon unfolds into a planet-altering conspiracy. As the resolution comes to a head, the unlikely group of reunited heroes-Rorschach, Nite Owl, Silk Spectre, Dr. Manhattan and Ozymandias – have to test the limits of their convictions and ask themselves where the true line is between good and evil.

“A work of ruthless psychological realism, it’s a landmark in the graphic novel medium.

It would be a masterpiece in any.”

-TIME, TIME MAGAZINE’s 100 best English-language novels from 1923 to the present

Comica Social Club

Comica Social Club
Wednesday 28th March
6:00pm – 10:00pm
Central Bar, Royal Festival Hall, Southbank Centre, Belvedere Rd, London SE1 8XX

The Comica Social Club is a monthly meetup for people interested in comics, manga and graphic novels.

It is informal. You can chat, greet, gossip or network. Talk about your stuff, your big plan, your collection list (but we may run away) or what awaits in the reading nook?

The Comica Social Club is every last Wednesday in the month—except December.

Social Media can help you start, build and maintain relationships with people in comics all over the world. However, meeting people face to face can make your relationships even better. Social Media accounts for about 30 per cent of all word-of-mouth contact, far less than you might think. It means that face-to-face interaction accounts for 70 per cent of all word-of-mouth contact. It makes sense to attend Comica Social Club whenever you can and keep up with the buzz. There are some people not using Facebook and this Comica Social Club Newsletter is our way to stay in touch with you.

We all look forward to meeting you.

Come and Have Fun and Make New Friends!
