This group meets on the second Wednesday of each month to discuss all things related to comic
books, anime, and manga.  Whether its Golden Age, Silver Age, Manga, or Anime, this group
tackles the ins and outs of art, story, and the graphic media. Join our moderators as they explore
the comic book universe.

This month's theme is Dress for Success.  Superheroes have their uniforms - many iconic.  Who
doesn't know Batman?  Superman?  Other uniforms are more subtle but no less important.  The
clothes make the man...or do they?

Big Man On Campus
3/8/17 recap

Chris
Haywood had a fun line-up of comic oriented campus settings for the March theme of Big Man on Campus.  
Haywood introduced us to some super hero schools:

  • GOTHAM ACADEMY
  • STARFLEET ACADEMY
  • LEGION ACADEMY
  • XAVIER'S ACADEMY FOR GIFTED YOUNGSTERS
  • FUTURE FOUNDATION
  • AVENGER'S ACADEMY

Following the list of super hero campus settings, Haywood showed us a direct-to-video of Starfleet
Academy from 1993 with, among others, William Shatner. We also talked about Supergirl on Flash,
3/21/2017, and the new Wolverine film Logan. Lively, animated discussion.
When Nature Calls
4/12/17 recap

Chris H

Our When Nature Calls theme was well represented with Swamp Thing. Haywood included comics, films, TV
series, and all things Swamp Thing. Haywood followed up the excellent representation of Nature in comics
with trailers for the new films of Thor, DC Justice League and Marvel / Disney Spider-Man.  The inclusion of
a tribute to Don Rickles, including a Tonight Show appearance with Joan Rivers, was a nice touch.  There
was even a Don Rickles appearance in comics!!  Jack Kirby helmed a comic showing Rickles with Jimmy
Olson! A great presentation by our moderator.  A great time.  Always a fun event.
