New Release Pick of the Week for 7/18/2018

The Life of Captain Marvel #1

The Life of Captain Marvel #1

Marvel COMICS

(W) Margaret Stohl (A) Carlos Pacheco (CA) Julian Totino Tedesco

THE DEFINITIVE ORIGIN OF CAPTAIN MARVEL!
Carol Danvers was just a girl from the Boston suburbs who loved science and the Red Sox until a chance encounter with a Kree hero gave her incredible super-powers. Now, she’s a leader in the Avengers and the commander of Alpha Flight. But what if there were more to the story? When crippling anxiety attacks put her on the sidelines in the middle of a fight, Carol finds herself reliving memories of a life she thought was far behind her. You can’t outrun where you’re from – and sometimes, you HAVE to go home again. But there are skeletons in Captain Marvel’s closet – and what she discovers will change her entire world. Written by best-selling author Margaret Stohl and drawn by fan-favorite comics veteran Carlos Pacheco, this is the true origin of Captain Marvel.

Rated T+

$4.99

Book Club – The Prince and the Dressmaker

Black Bolt Volume 1

Tuesday, July 31

6:30 PM – 7:30 PM

Join us this month to talk about Jen Wang’s The Prince and The Dressmaker! All ages friendly

New York Times-bestselling cartoonist (In Real Life) Jen Wang turns her pen to a tale of young love, identity, and fairy-tale endings.
Paris, at the dawn of the modern age:

Prince Sebastian is looking for a bride-or rather, his parents are looking for one for him. Sebastian is too busy hiding his secret life from everyone. At night he puts on daring dresses and takes Paris by storm as the fabulous Lady Crystallia-the hottest fashion icon in the world capital of fashion!

Sebastian’s secret weapon (and best friend) is the brilliant dressmaker Frances-one of only two people who know the truth: sometimes this boy wears dresses. But Frances dreams of greatness, and being someone’s secret weapon means being a secret. Forever. How long can Frances defer her dreams to protect a friend? Jen Wang weaves an exuberantly romantic tale of identity, young love, art, and family. A fairy tale for any age, The Prince and the Dressmaker will steal your heart.

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