Between the Panels Book-Club 6pm-9pm

This Week’s Book-Club title is Captain Marvel. Please come join us for a discussion on this volume, it’s sure to be a great chat!

Next book club meeting is January 31st. The title is God Hates Astronauts by Ryan Browne. It looks like a super fun read!

GHA follows the story of a group of incompetent, small-minded, super-powered narcissists called “The Power Persons Five” who are hired by NASA to stop all farmers from launching themselves into space in homemade rocket ships. Unfortunately, for NASA, this goal is scarcely even addressed and the book focuses more on extramarital affairs, bank robbing owls, big gross swollen heads, ghost cow heads, olde-tyme boxers, tigers eating cheeseburgers in the Crab Nebula, buffalo judges and tons of aggressive swearing. Not as much a superhero book as it is a parody of basically everything and a celebration of weird that is jam-packed with references to Robo-Cop and Die Hard.
