Book Club: Sandman Volume 1

I'm interested in getting the book club part of this group started again. My initial thought for the first book is a graphic novel, as they are not a huge time commitment, and can still provide meaningful discussion. However, I'm open to other suggestions, so feel free to mention your ideas in the comments. I'm also open to other places, but a place to get a beer would be a good change of pace. Initial ideas:

1. The Sandman Vol. 1: Preludes and Nocturnes by Neil Gaiman

2. Morning Glories Vol. 1: For a Better Future by Nick Spencer

3. The Superior Foes of Spider-Man Vol. 1: Getting the Band Back Together by Nick Spencer

    Unfortunately I'm feeling rather unwell and won't be able to make it after all, sorry. :( I will be at the next one.

    Hey, I was just on the Baeltane Brewing site and it looks like they have changed their hours. It's now showing open 3-7 on Sunday.

      Hmmm... Meet at 3 then? Or later?

      April 2, 2014

    • Freddy

      We're set for 3 now. Since we're coming when they open, we should be able to stake a spot outside.

    At this meetup, I'm hoping to pick the next selection as well. Feel free to bring/mention any graphic novel you'd like to read next.

    Confirmed, the site does note new hours / we're only a half hour off here, I can adjust the official time to 3 PM and hopefully this won't pose a problem

    Since we've got plenty of time till April to read perhaps we should go ahead and take the top three comics from the poll / start with the #1 book and read as much as you can:
    Pick #1: Sandman
    Pick #2: Morning Glories Vol 1
    Pick #3: Watchmen See everyone soon!

      I'm going to be up in Seattle the weekend of March 29th, so the 6th works better for me. However, I can always try for the next one if the 29th works best for everyone else. :-)

      Let's set it for the 6th; hopefully that works for everyone.

      Location works for me. I'm guessing we'll probably want to go for early afternoon Saturday or Sunday. That way it hopefully won't be too busy or crowded.

    Sounds like fun to me. Gives me another excuse for adding to my ever expanding Graphic Novel/Trade collection.
