Title: Mad Graphic Novel Group – Astro city: Life in the Big City
Location: MadLab
Description: A discussion group for those looking to talk, argue,
debate about graphic novels, comics, comix and web-comics.
Start Time: 19:00
Date: 2011-05-03
End Time: 21:00

We’ve elected the graphic novel ‘Astro city: Life in the Big City’ the first in trade in Astro City TPB written by Kurt Busiek and drawn by Brent E. Anderson.

The book tells several vignettes of the super heroic city from various perspectives such as an overworked her, an everyday office employee and even a scout for an invading alien force.

The book will be hosted by somewhat new (by this I mean coming for 3 months) Mad Graphic Novel Group member David Morris.

Our web comic for the month is the frankly hilarious Dr. Mcninja comic written and drawn by Christopher Hastings, with eventual coloring by Anthony Clark. Love stories about Irish ninjas rocking moustaches? Have a hate on for pirates and their ilk? Want to learn how to punch a ghost (the answer is AWESOME)? Then this is the comic for you!!!

We have our usual routine of getting the two for Tuesday on Pizza, so bring money if you’re interested and remember, the mad lab (the place we host our group) is a charity, so a recommended donation of a quid or two is appreciated.

We hope to see you there for discussion on the graphic novel, the webcomic and whatever else we usually go off on a tangent about followed by drinks at the Common bar.
