What we're about

A monthly book club to discuss graphic novels and comics that feature well-developed female characters. If you love Ms Marvel, The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl, Saga, Giant Days or any of the many graphic novels that feature well-rounded and interesting women (or squirrels), you'll be in great company.

Everyone is welcome, men and women, whether you're new to comics or a seasoned reader. Please join us for an informal and friendly chat about all aspects of some great graphic novels over a drink or a coffee.
