April Comic Book Club

For April, we're taking a turn for the scary & dense with Alan Moore's rumination on the Whitechapel Murders, From Hell. This is painstakingly researched, long, and challenging book, which is why I am announcing this so early. Don't wait until the last minute to read this almost 600 page novel!

There are a couple copies in the city library, it's black & white so available on the Nook (and Kindle I think) for less than $10, or new it's less than $20. Otherwise, you can acquire it pretty easily from the internet ( password "g33k". You're welcome.).

Looking forward to a great discussion about one of the classics of the medium.

NB: This is a book about Jack the Ripper, so there's all manner of unpleasantness (rape, murder, torture, etc.). Consider yourself TW'ed.

Are people liking the dinner thing? We could meet at Shakespeare's in Little Italy (thematically appropriate)? Let me know in comments!

Here is my standard spiel about CBR/CBZ files (the link I posted above):

If you would like to read these files in a more "comic book" like format, you should get a comic reader: for Windows (THIS IS A NEW APP AS OF 4 HOURS AFTER POSTING, THE PREVIOUS APP SORT OF SUCKED, THIS IS MUCH BETTER), or for Mac (this is what I am currently using, and it seems to be pretty good for a free app). More info on opening the .cbr/.cbx files is located here: If you don't want to hassle with all that, you can open them as PDFs, but you will probably lose any cross page paneling, plus it's a pain to have 100 files open on your screen, even if you have a giant monitor (ask me how I know!).
