Book Club – Heartthrob

Heartthrob

Tuesday, December 5

6:30 PM – 7:30 PM

Callie was born with a bad heart. After it ruined her life, she went looking for a miracle: a heart transplant. Now she’s got a brand new heart, but she’s still stuck with a crappy job, crappy boyfriend, and crappy prospects.

Enter Mercer, a mystery man who gets Callie’s heart beating like crazy. As her behavior changes and their flirting deepens, Mercer reveals he’s her heart donor. Only Callie can see, speak to, and touch him – and he’s in love with her, a love she feels just as strongly.

A master thief when he died, Mercer offers to teach Callie his criminal ways and how to turn them against her old job and kick off a nationwide crime spree. Hunted by the FBI and popping heart meds to stay alive, Callie will find out that nothing’s as scary as two people in love with nothing to lose.

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

Next up: Doom Patrol vol 1 (Gerard Way & Nick Derington, DC Young Animal)

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

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!
