Comics Reading and Discussion Group with John Isaacson

Have you been a fan of comics for years? Have you never really read comics? Do you enjoy reading and discussing art and literature? If so, this is the group for you! We will be splitting the hour-long group in to two parts: in the first half we will read and discuss short cartoons and comics, this first half is open for drop-in—no pre-reading necessary! In the second half, the group will discuss pre-assigned comics and discuss them. The group will meet regularly every other Sunday from 7-8:15, it is free and open to the public.

Readings on 3/21 include:
100 Demons by Lynda Barry
Drop-In by Dave Lapp
