For our July meeting we will be discussing Understanding Comics: The Invisible Art by Scott McCloud. Thanks to Jenny for the suggestion!
It doesn't sound like anyone can host this month, so we will be meeting in Greektown at Athena. We have a reservation inside, but let's plan to try for outdoor seating (not reservable). Please let me know as soon as you can if you won't be able to join us so that I can give an accurate head-count to the staff. Athena is near the loop and just a few blocks from the UIC-Halsted Blue Line stop.
"A comic book about comic books. McCloud, in an incredibly accessible style, explains the details of how comics work: how they're composed, read and understood. More than just a book about comics, this gets to the heart of how we deal with visual languages in general."
Please remember that you can come to the meeting even if you haven't read the book. Hope to see you soon!
