REMINDER :: Heroes Discussion Group Meeting Monday, March 24!

OOH! OOH! Don't forget our first ever meeting of the HEROES DISCUSSION GROUP this Monday at 7pm! We'll be discussing Alan Moore & Kevin O'Neill's League of Extraordinary Gentlemen Volume One--if you haven't read it yet (Shawn Reynolds) now's the time! And if you have read it before, I would suggest a reread this weekend. I'll be cracking the seal on my still unopened Absolute LOEG slipcase at last!

Below is the text of discussion leader Andy Mansell's original post. See you this Monday!

How often have you finished a really terrific comic or graphic novel and wished you had an opportunity to discuss the book in detail? For me it is a daily occurrence. By the time I get to Heroes on Wednesday for my weekly new releases, I am frothing at the mouth to discuss as many comics as possible in the shortest amount of time with a staff trying to counter all of my ideas and still assist all the other customers.

Well, now it is time we MAKE time! Presenting the Heroes Aren't Hard to Find Discussion Group. The first meeting will be Monday, March 24th at 7:00pm in the store. We hope to meet on the third Monday of every month and discuss a different piece of graphic literature. Our first book will be Alan Moore and Kevin O'Neill's League of Extraordinary Gentlemen Volume One, published by ABC Comics/DC and available at Heroes for 19.95.

The book has some mature content, so everyone mature enough to buy the book is invited to join in the discussion. All we ask is that you read the book before the meeting and come prepared with an opinion and an open mind. If you loved it, tell us why; if you were disappointed, explain why... Does it hold up to second reading and various other topics: and the last 15 minutes of the meeting will be a battle royale to decide what book will be discussed at the next meeting.

So come one, come all... We can hardly wait...

I wish I could attend, but I work late on Mondays. Will you be holding future discussions on other nights? Thanks!
