All Ages Book Club – Teen Dog

Teen Dog

Sunday, November 26

5 PM – 6 PM

Austin Books & Comics All Ages is meeting up again: This time to discuss Teen Dog! Join us – all ages are welcome!

What’s to Love: Teen Dog is John Hughes movies meets ’90s Nickelodeon cartoons, two of our absolute favorite things. It’s a totally awesome adventure that stars the canine that spun out of Jake Lawrence’s web comic Time Cowboy and kickflipped his way into our hearts.

What It Is: Skateboards, football games, prom…your teenage years have got nothin’ on the raddest dude that’s ever graced a denim vest. Written and illustrated by Jake Lawrence (Time Cowboy), join Teen Dog and his best friend Mariella as they tackle typical teen life with a manic twist. Growing up is an adventure, and you might as well rock it! Collects the complete eight-issue miniseries.

Book Club – Unbeatable Squirrel Girl

The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl Volume 1

Tuesday, December 5

6:30 PM – 7:30 PM

***NOTE: This is a combined Nov/Dec book club and is meeting the FIRST WEEK OF DECEMBER. The next meeting will be in January 2018***

Doctor Doom, Deadpool, even Thanos: There’s one hero who’s beaten them all – and now she’s starring in her own series! That’s right, it’s SQUIRREL GIRL! The nuttiest and most upbeat super hero in the world is starting college! And as if meeting her new roommate and getting to class on time isn’t hard enough, now she has to deal with Kraven the Hunter, too? At least her squirrel friend Tippy-Toe is on hand to help out. But what can one girl, and one squirrel, do when a hungry Galactus heads toward Earth? You’d be surprised! With time running out and Iron Man lending a helping hand (sort of), who will win in the battle between the Power Cosmic and the Power Chestnut?

Covering: Unbeatable Squirrel Girl vol 1 (#1-4) (Ryan North & Erica Henderson, Marvel)

Next up: Heartthrob vol 1 (Chris Sebela & Robert Wilson IV, Oni)

Book club meets the last Tuesday of every month. Everyone is welcome!
