Reading Comics

Douglas Wolk, author of READING COMICS, will be at Quimby’s, Saturday, August 11th, 7:00 pm. As usual, it is a FREE EVENT!

In Douglas Wolk’s READING COMICS: How Graphic Novels Work and What They Mean, fans have a collection of criticism about the artists and writers they admire most: Frank Miller and Klaus Janson (Batman: The Dark Knight Returns), Alan Moore and David Gibbons (Watchmen), Dave Sim (Cerebus), Steve Ditko and Stan Lee (Dr. Strange), Keith Giffen (Legion of Super Heroes), and more; and newcomers have a history of how comics evolved, a diverse list of the comics worth reading, and a context for how to read, consider, and discuss comics.

Comedy By Numbers Event

This event was super fun. Thanks to everybody that came! Eric Hoffman and Gary Rudoren reenacted/read from their book Comedy By Numbers, to scientifically enlighten us how to be funny. Special guest Bob Odenkirk acted as the obnoxious college circuit comedian, and as you would expect, was hilarious.
