Red Colored Elegy 赤色エレジー by Seiichi Hayashi 林 静一 is a work about 2 young students struggling to find a way in socially and politically tumultuous times. Written by a pioneer of manga this experimental work will provide much to discuss.

Manga Jam typically meets on second Sundays to discuss a selected work of manga and its international relevance. This event is suitable for attendees 18+ with any level of manga knowledge or experience. We recommend reading the entire selection beforehand – spoilers guaranteed!

Getting the Comic

About the Location
This is Next Door, a sort of coworking space. It previously was a cafe but no longer offers food and drink. Feel free to bring some from outside.

Getting There

Off of Diversey with the Diversey Bus, a few blocks from the Halsted Bus, practically on top of the Clark Street bus and not far from the Brown and Red Lines. Parking is limited, however due to it being Sunday it free nearby.
