Dig into the seedy side of the comics industry with Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips’ Bad Weekend for the September edition of Reads, our monthly reading group! Grab a copy this month and get 10% off the cover price, then bring it along on Wednesday 11th September, 7-9pm and tell us what you think!
A collection of issues 2 & 3 of Brubaker and Phillips’ new series of Criminal with all new story pages, Bad Weekend is a great introduction to the hard boiled world of the medium’s preeminent crime storytellers.
“The ultimate comic con crime tale! Comics won't just break your heart. Comics will kill you. Hal Crane should know, he's been around since practically the beginning. Stuck at an out-of-town convention, waiting to receive a lifetime achievement award, Hal's weekend takes us on a dark ride through the secret history of a medium that's always been haunted by crooks, swindlers, and desperate dreamers.
BAD WEEKEND - the story some are already calling the comic of the year from its serialization in CRIMINAL #2 and 3 - has been expanded, with several new scenes added and remastered into a hardcover graphic novel. This gorgeous package is a must-have, an evergreen graphic novel every true comics fan will want to own.”
As ever, everyone is welcome to London’s friendliest graphic novel reading group! Come along and have a chat: just be here for 7pm-9pm on Wednesday the 11th September and letting the chitchat begin.
