Comic Book Club 5a7

Hi everybody! There’s a lot of overlap between the interests of comics studies and game studies, so we’re setting up a monthly comic book club 5a7 which will be starting next Thursday, Jan 25th. Do you love comics and want to talk about them more? Do you make comics? Are you just curious? Come discuss and learn about the medium with us! For this first edition, we invite you to bring in a few books and be prepared to chat about one or two of them (if you want, feel free to just bring yourself!) We’ll also make sure to talk about comics written by and featuring women and/or marginalized folks each meeting, so this is the PERFECT opportunity for newbies and first-timers to drop by!

We will also be discussing what kind of format we want the club to take in the future–here are some options we’re thinking about:

– Bring books you’re excited to share but don’t want to get rid of
– Bring books for trading or giving away
– Bring some thoughts to share and your reading glasses
– If you want to give a micro-talk about anything related to comics, feel free to prepare something
– Comics in all languages, genres, and formats welcome and encouraged!
We’ll have some snacks and beverages, talk, exchange books, and figure out what we’ll do for our second meeting!
WHERE? TAG Lab (1515 Ste Catherine W, Montreal, EV 11.435)
WHEN? Thursday, January 25th 5-7pm
WHO? Anyone can come! (and bring a couple comics if you can)
