Matthieu will be hosting a monthly graphic novel book club!

This new book club is oriented around the discussion of the comics medium through stories new and old, mainstream and independent, accessible and challenging. There is only one question that a book needs to answer positively to be considered: Does it have panels?

He's kicking things off with Will Eisner's A Contract with God! A seminal publication in the history of the comics medium, A Contract with God tells four stories about the lives of Jewish New Yorkers in the halls of tenement buildings; there are shootouts, stone tablets, affairs, and all other happenings sacred and sordid. Eisner's convention defying paneling and art style combine to create an ambitious classic in comics storytelling! Content warning: This volume contains depictions of sexual assault, domestic violence, and other mature themes.

Meetings occur the first Tuesday of each month at 7 P.M., with this inaugural session scheduled for October 3rd!
